One war is over but a new war is beginning, and Lightstorm is once again caught in the crossfire.
After eight months in space fighting alongside the Vanguard against the Black End, Carrie “Lightstorm” Hauser comes home to rejoin her friends and family — but do they even need her anymore?
Carrie returns to Earth and finds herself a stranger in her own life. Matt has taken over as leader of the Hero Squad, her secret identity has been revealed to the world, and her father wants nothing to do with his super-hero daughter. Worst of all, Concorde refuses to let Carrie back in the field until she deals with the trauma she suffered in the Black End War.
As Carrie struggles to figure out her place in the world, a new threat rises in the form of Massacre and Vendetta, two rival super-villain teams on a collision course — and Kingsport is their battleground.
Heroes will rise. Heroes will fall. And no one will walk away unscathed.
