Imagine being the children of the world’s greatest superheroes. They’re not as brave or beloved as their parents, seeking fame and fortune instead of the altruism of the old guard and more interested in sponsorship deals and being photographed in the right places than rescuing cats from trees.

America tumbles and the heroes are the problem.
