Mayhem stalks the midway as the malevolent Carnaval Pomme D'or returns to the super-hero metropolis of Cobalt City. Legends claim this mysterious and dark carnival has ties to Lafayette, one of the city's earliest heroes. Some say it is a force of nature, a danger that can only be endured but never defeated. Back for the first time in a generation, it brings mystics and monsters concealed beneath a veneer of greasepaint and faded canvas. Nothing less than the soul of the city is at stake. Do the assembled super-heroes of Cobalt City have what it takes to challenge the forces of chaos? What chances do a lovelorn cat woman, industrialist family man, evolved panda, ancient sorcerer, dead jazz musician, and renegade cupid stand against an evil that has persevered for centuries?
