The last thing in the world Thom Creed wants is to add to his father x2019;s pain, so he keeps secrets. Like that he has special powers. And that he x2019;s been asked to join the League x2013; the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. But the most painful secret of all is one Thom can barely face himself: he x2019;s gay.
But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger; Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch; and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide; but they will have to learn to trust one another when they uncover a deadly conspiracy within the League.
To survive, Thom will face challenges he never imagined. To find happiness, he x2019;ll have to come to terms with his father x2019;s past and discover the kind of hero he really wants to be.
