      Part 1: Over twenty years ago, a comet struck the Earth just outside the town of Pederson, Illinois. There were 113 children in utero when the flash hit, and every one of them was affected, gaining extraordinary super-powers as they grew older. The people of the world, initially worried by what the children might become when they reached adulthood, now fear what they will do with the powers they've gained-and who might suffer should the "rising stars" of humanity start to think they could run the world betterš. Part 2: Ten years have passed since the Specials-men and women gifted with incredible powers-had their standoff against the government. Feared, hunted, and yet revered, they have scattered across the globe, only to be forced to come together once more when the Special known as Critical Maas takes the city of Chicago hostage. Now, a small group of her former friends have decided to take it back, in exchange for a pardon from the government. But their actions will not come without a heavy price to pay for the Specials-and the world.
