Time-traveling supervillains and young superheroes in this sequel to the thrilling Super Human! They thought him dead. After a battle of that magnitude, how could Krodin have possibly survived?

In Michael Carroll’s follow-up to the acclaimed Super Human, the world has been remade in the Chancellor’s image, and it’s about to get much much worse. Only this young band of heroes has a chance of stopping him, but can they return the world to what it was, or will they be stranded in this alternate world forever?
