Gravity is real. Instinctively jumping from the top of a building in an attempt to save Calista, Christian Walker forgets that he can no longer fly; fortunately, his old flame, jaded superhero Retro Girl, catches them both before they hit the ground. Retro Girl treats Walker to a rough landing on top of the building, but tries to take Calista under her wing to find out what’s going on. Walker’s new partner, Detective Deena Pilgrim, gets a rather electrifying taste of what it’s like to try to take down someone with superpowers. His existence – or at least his survival – outed, supervillain Johnny Royale goes public, registers with police as someone with superpowers, and makes sure that the inevitable confrontration with Walker caught on video…but Royale has worse things in mind for Walker than a mere lawsuit.
