I am clearly on a super-hero bender... first Ms Marvel. Started watching Jessica Jones... and now this.

Picture a world like "The Incredibles" with super heroes ... made illegal. Add in a ghetto island where they all have to live. Then have John Ajax sent to spend the summer with his grandfather on that island (Capeville). His grandfather who wrote the book (literally) that outlawed superheroes.

Then there's adventure, John taking up the mantle of Black Vulture, not to mention thoughtful reflections on justice, mercy and identity - it's a terrific mix. I'm already looking forward to the next installment, for sure!
