It's 1986. Top Gun is in theaters. "Papa Don't Preach" is on the radio. Halley's Comet is in the sky, and Iran-Contra is in the news. The Russians are in Afghanistan, and the Doomsday Clock is at 3 minutes until midnight.
But that doesn't matter. Because at school, at the mall, down by the 7-Eleven, you've started seeing things others don't. Hidden power glowing in what seem to be everyday items.
And when you follow that strange compulsion to create a mask from these items, you become . . . someone else. Someone with abilities and strengths the world has never seen, and an agenda that may not be your own. And there are others, with their own agendas. Maybe that Doomsday Clock matters after all. . .
