Synopsis What's it like to write about Marvel's larger-than-life superhumans... especially if you think they're a bunch of immature brats? Rookie reporter Katherine Farrell hates "The Capes". They wear ridiculous costumes. They have petty feuds. They run around destroying public property when real heroes like cops and firemen are sacrificing their lives to help others. But, hey, Kat's a newbie, so it's the beat she's stuck with. That is, unless she can nail a big story and move up to the City Crime Desk next to her hero Ben Urich. Trouble is, her career, not to mention her life, is threatoned when she uncovers the identity of a super-villian serial killer - a new super hero designed by Editor In Chief Joe Quesada!
