XXXWhat is expected of one when everything thought to be true, the absolutes which are known to be the foundation of reality, becomes shattered in light of a new prospect. After all, human beings are fickle creatures who rely on consistency and palpability, and they are quick to excuse all things out of the ordinary due to fear that something in their world will be unlike anything they've ever known. The first step is shock; the comprehension that a difference has been made renders one into a state of astonishment. This is only to be followed by denial. No, it can't possibly be true! There are things in the world that just are and that's the way things ought to be... right? Lastly, with little else listed as reason for disbelief, it is only then that individuals turn to acceptance. This concept is the new reality.

XXXFunnily enough, it's a cycle that occurs time and time again when it comes to the divergence of the perceived truth. It only goes to show that the only thing that's been proven consistent is the human mind and its instinctive tendencies, how it responds to the introduction of stimuli through inherent inclinations. After a long period of time and increased exposure to recently developed facts, information can be digestible. However, what to do with this information is left to the hands of the newly enlightened.

XXXTake the modern anatomy, for example. While there are dozens of theories as to how the species came to be, whether it be through a divine creational force in its image or simply the product of an exploding star and millions of years of evolution, it doesn't exactly matter. At the current point in time there is a very deep understanding of the body and it's functions, and therefore the expectations and limitations that are coupled with that. But let's say, for example, that there are those who test what is understood to be true in what are to be called "super-human abilities."

XXXWhat if, among the billions of people on earth, there were those with hidden powers that set them apart from the rest. What if these innate abilities were the hidden second nature of the John and Jane Does that go about living their lives just like any other. Even they are unaware of what they possess. But all it would take is that little key to unlock a part of themselves that would make them extraordinary; this is a reality that transpires.

XXXTo be more than what you are and to reach the full potential is something that many strive for. However, if the fruition that comes along with the completion of oneself means that you are forced to alter the facts of existence, would it be worth it? You're more, you're special, and you're supernatural.

XXXThe lives of five individuals are turned upside down when their seemingly normal existence is influenced by acts deemed unlawful; however, the crimes of which they were accused are anything but fact. They all claim that they are in fact innocent of any offenses they supposedly committed, a case of falsehood or being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but then again, don't all criminals claim that they're guiltless? If asked, any of the crooked sort will give an angelic smile while claiming a status of a law-abiding, upright citizen. That being said, it can be thought that these five are no different than that of a common delinquent. At least, that was what the judge and jury seemed to think when they all came to the conclusion that the five were responsible for their misdeeds.

XXXHaving been prosecuted under the American justice system they found themselves swept away from the way of life that they had once known and shoved into a world they had never thought would become their own. Gone are the days that they were free to roam the streets of Chicago, as they swapped their homes for a prison cell, friends for a cellmate, and regular attire for jumpsuits of an undoubtedly unflattering orange hue. They may continue to exclaim that this was some sort of mistake, or at least a sick joke being played on them. But there aren't exactly any open ears to listen to them, nor are there any hearts willing to believe them anyway. Once in prison, all are guilty.

XXXAs it turns out, the five being there was not the result any mere mistake, nor was it a simple coincidence. On the terms of a higher power, they come to learn that their convictions were orchestrated by the government, or rather, a secret sector of the government. Claiming to be the managerial department of the superhuman peoples that roam the United States of America, they explain that the group of five were hand-picked to follow through on a mission. Meaning, yes, they were in possession of otherworldly abilities and yes, they were to be the ones to put an end to an underground malignant group of powered transgressors.
