The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but theyre haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappearalong with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers?
The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War IIera comic book (Fantastic Futures,
starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, andpossibly, unbelievablypowerless regular-kid Daniel himself.
