The fabled Well of the furies holds the power to transform ordinary men and women into heroes-and villains--mighty enough to rival the demigods of Greek myth. In 1930, as economic catastrophe and poliltical upheaval blight the world, two friends uncover the well's secret. The two men will become legends--one a champion of justice known as Statesman, the other a reclusive criminal mastermind whose diabolical schemes will shake the globe. Their epic conflict begins in Paragon City, a once-great American metropolis brought low by the depression and crippled by corruption. but the battle cannot be won by Statesman alone. For justice to triumph, Paragon will have to become a city of Heroes.
