Years ago, the children of the experimental strike team known as Generation Zero were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit, a private weapons contractor, and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they have fought for and won their freedom. Now, the world's most wanted teenagers have pledged to protect each other tooth and claw, while using their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future... To fight for kids, just like them. One of those kids is Keisha Sherman, whose boyfriend just turned up dead after a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan - a newly booming tech town that sprang from rags to superriches seemingly overnight. When Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students... But as word of Generation Zero's presence spreads rapidly through the halls, this volatile band of teenage upstarts is about to discover that they're far from the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook's stainless-steel facade... New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, Amazing Spider-Man) and blockbuster artist Francis Portela (FAITH) launch four highly specialized superhuman soldiers into their most dangerous mission yet: high school!

Generation Zero managed to survive their first mission, and now duty has called on them to venture deep inside a perilous dimension only known as the Heroscape to see the world through a new set of eyes! They'll discover their friends' biggest secrets, their enemies' darkest fears, and their town's sinister connection to this imagination-fueled reality. But just because the Heroscape is imaginary, doesn't mean it can't kill you...

Dream big because New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (Ivar, Timewalker) and acclaimed artists Javier Pulido (Daredevil) and Diego Bernard (X-O Manowar) are gearing up to send Valiant's temperamental teenage time-bombs blasting out of the suburbs and into their most grisly adventure yet!
