    A detective and his partner search for Supernova (the villain), who hates The Fantastic Phenomenon (the hero) so much that he is killing superhero super-fans. The detective's world quickly begins to unravel as he questions his own belief in law and justice and starts to peel back the good-versus-evil veneer, exposing the realities of life and death and the ultimate consequences of trusting those who tell us to "keep the faith." The black-and-white morality of superheroes is turned on its head in this play.
