Jake Roth knows the stark reality that everyone who manifests superpowers goes insane and becomes a threat to society. So, when Jake discovers that he, himself, has powers but has somehow kept his sanity, he has a life-or-death decision to make: Will he use his powers to help people but risk being hunted down by the government? Or will he keep his powers a secret and remain safe while innocent people around him get hurt?
