Can the powerless son of a superhero do what his father couldn’t?
Spencer Harrington is the son of the Crimson Mask, the world’s most powerful Augment. Ever since witnessing his mother’s abduction by a psychotic supervillain two years ago, he’s been confined to his father’s arctic bunker. Haunted by nightmares and tired of eating cardboard rations in the “Icehole”, Spencer launches into his father’s dangerous world to uncover his mother’s fate.
With no superpowers of his own, Spencer stumbles through a web of conspiracies and top secret facilities armed only with his multi-tool and an arsenal of weapons-grade snark. Along the way he rallies a team of everyday people and cast-off Augments to help his cause, but soon discovers that his father’s nemesis, the Black Beetle, isn’t his only enemy or even his worst.
