The new age of superheroes began in 1979 with an explosion at the Maralinga Quantum Field Test Facility. Over the course of the next decades, a range of super-powered ‘post-humans’ appeared across the world. In order to curb the proliferation of post-human ‘weapons’, the United Nations signed a Post-Human Non-Aggression Treaty (PNT) forcing all post-humans to register themselves, and be recruited into official, Government-sanctioned teams. All post-humans who resisted the PNT were either arrested, went underground or disappeared. During this period, the original Zero-Point was killed in a battle with the Red Knight – a Soviet Union post-human.
Present day. All legal superheroes are Government operatives and all supervillains have been labelled terrorists. Internationally, the American superman known as Adam Magnus fights the super-terror organisation known as the Sons of Azriel in the Middle East. In Australia, the Australian Federal Extra-Normal Civil Operatives, ‘AFECO’, are a tactical group made up of the only Government-sanctioned post-humans. KYLE BURTON – son of the original Zero-Point – is the newest member of AFECO, trying to find his place in the team as they battle a series of ‘extra-normal’ threats. Over the course of several missions, Kyle begins to realise that he is not being told the full story about Australia’s post-human history, including the untimely death of his father. He comes to decide that, with or without his team mates’ support, he will find out the truth.
