It isn't every day that you find yourself responsible for overthrowing the leadership of a superhero team. Unfortunately for Jolene Faraday, AKA Daystar, she doesn't have much time to bask in the glow of her victory over Alpha and his cronies at StrikeForce. Though StrikeForce is working to regain its reputation and be taken seriously, the villains they need to handle are out there right now, and StrikeForce is nowhere near ready to deal with them.
Dr. Death, responsible for the deaths of nearly three dozen people when one of his experiments went awry in downtown Detroit, is still on the loose, and it's only a matter of time before he comes up with another maniacal plan. Super powered people are going missing all over the world, and then there's that whole "now what do we do with Alpha?" issue.
Aside from that, Jolene is still adjusting to the injuries she sustained the last time she faced off against Death and his crew, as well as dealing with the weight of keeping her past life and her superhero life separate. She can't seem to find enough time for her irritating sort-of superhero boyfriend, and her friends don't entirely trust her. Probably with good reason.
All of that means nothing when Jolene is faced with betrayal, heartbreak, and questions of loyalty. In the end she'll have to decide whether to keep to the superhero route, or risk becoming the very thing StirkeForce always feared she would be.
