Citadel by Unillustrated

Training in Necessity 

Isaac Strong, Kelly Protean, Hector Hive and Jason Grim have all led very different lives. However, they each have two things in common, super powers and their recent admittance to the Citadel program. As members of the Citadel’s newest class of recruits, they will be taught to utilize their powers, and their bodies, to their utter limits. The Citadel’s mission is simple. Halt the world’s slow slide into ruin. They each have a part to play, but will it be enough?

Note: Citadel is unfinished, with no recent updates.  It contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Most superpower fiction strays away from military tenets, Supers are generally a bit chaotic, and do their own thing, whether heroes or villains, they learn as they go. There’s nothing wrong with that – in fiction.
