Paradigm is different. We wanted to create a story where you are in the passengers seat as the origin story is unfolding. It begins with one important flashback, then, from that point on, you are in the present discovering the life and struggles of Ben Fallow.

Ben has suffered loss, doesn’t have a great relationship with his family, and holds onto a powerful secret about his past. He is constantly trying to do what he thinks is right, seemingly a way to regain the innocence torn away from him. He has a great job, friends, even a lady in his life… but his childhood still haunts him; replaying in his mind over and over again.

As the story unfolds, we will discover that the past is a hard thing to keep locked away. The end of issue one throws a curveball into what may have seemed like a casual story. Soon, Ben will have to make a decision; to either tear himself away from his responsibility, or to become the hero the city so desperately needs.
