About Comics, 2004 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 166 pages
Some are born to be heroes, and some are trained to be heroes, but not the DNAgents. No, they were manufactured. Matrix Incorporated brewed them in a laboratory to be super soldiers without souls. But nobody told them that. This is the first of a series of volumes chronicling the adventures of Surge, Tank, Rainbow, Amber, and Sham, five superheroes in teenage bodies venturing out into the world for the first time. They're well designed to handle the bad guys, but now they also have to handle life.
