SCOTT W W SAWYER'S
Back in the 1980s, there was an age of heroes in the north, much smaller than the one in the States, when figures like Major Snow (the Canadian super-soldier) and his nemesis Lord Reign made life hard for each other, eventually going out in a spectacular blaze of glory that served as a cautionary tale ending that age of heroes and villains.
Current day: Toronto. Casey Van Allen, the offspring of the fallen legendary Major Snow, has inherited all of her father's fortune but none of his good sense. She is impatient, impetuous, and has learned that the monster responsible for her father’s death (Lord Reign), is alive and well, and has been living the good life in retirement after effectively staging his own death years ago. Obsessed with her father's legacy and determined to bring his killer to justice, Casey suits up and uses her vast inheritance to con a team of unsuspecting outcasts into helping her on her mission, accidentally setting off the second age of heroes and villains in the north.
