Opal has been planning to go to Chicago and join the Midwest's superhero team- the Sentinels, since she was a little kid. That dream took on a more urgent tone when her superpowered dad was unjustly arrested for protecting a neighbor from an abusive situation. Now, she wants to be a superhero not only to protect people, but to get a platform to tell the world about the injustices of the Altered Persons Bureau- the government agency for everything relating to superpowers.
But, just after Opals high school graduation, a supervillain with a jet and unclear motives attacked the downtown home of the Sentinels, and when Opal arrives she finds a family on the brink of breaking apart. She meets a boy whose been developing secret (and illegal) brain altering nanites right under the Sentinel's noses, and another teenage superhero-hopeful who looks suspiciously like a long-dead supervillain, and the completely un-supowerpowered daughter of the Sentinels leader. Can four teens on the fringes of the superhero world handle the corruption, danger, and family secrets they've unearthed?
Hello, readers! We are pleased to be here today with the teenagers causing epic waves in America’s superhero community. Today with us we have; Opal Flynn, superhero hopeful from Detroit, Yael Meade, child of Helix and also superhero hopeful, Issac Tillman-Voss; son of LodeStar, leader of the Sentinels, and his sister, Jamie Tillman-Voss.
Jamie, let’s start with you. What is it like to be the daughter of America’s very first, and arguably most respected superhero?
Yael, sources suggest that not only are you trying to be a superhero, but you’re a big fan of superheroes in comics and film! Who is your favorite fictional superhero?
A good attitude for a hero to have!
Issac, you’re more than the son of LodeStar- you are also a talented engineer in your own right! Before her injury, Bion was on record saying you were even involved in her work with artificial intelligence. We…have a note here asking us not to discuss your own work, so what is your favorite android, robot, or AI from fiction?
Opal! Despite having more alterd’s than any other US city, it’s only produced one superhero- Capricorn. What inspired you to pursue superheroing for yourself?
And that’s all the time we have with these four exceptional teens today! Thanks to Opal, Issac, Yael, and Jamie. You can learn more about them and the Sentinels in 2018 release Second Hand Origin Stories by Lee Blauersouth.
