Ian and Alexis travel to Florida in hopes of getting answers about what the Academy is up to. While Ian tries to reconnect with his old friend, what they actually find is a clan of psionic teens and evidence that the Academy is just the public face of a much larger conspiracy.
They are heroes. They are people. This is their story.
Styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, The Descendants is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals, each telling a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes.
It is also written as a throwback and love letter to an earlier age of superheroes, to a time before everything was grim and gritty and when comic books were fun.
