Anathema by Chrysalis

Those comic books were lying about superpowers.

In the year 2010, the Pulse changed our world irrevocably. It quickly became clear that superhero comics and movies had little impact on this new reality. Secret identities turned out to be illusions for most. The defining lines between hero and villain were blurry at best, and the prime duty of the United Nation’s powered Covenant was to hunt . . .

THE SICK LAND

Creepy and Compelling
