Seventeen years ago, a crystal magically appeared in San Francisco and every pregnant woman within a five mile radius immediately gave birth to a super powered baby, regardless of the period of her pregnancy.

Reality television has been cranked up to an extreme level, as super powered teenagers participate in a televised battle, which may or may not result in death, to win a coveted membership spot on the only government super team in the world, The Power Generation.

Last year’s season finale resulted in both the final two competitors dying… and a spike in the ratings. Thus, this year, the producers of the show have lifted certain restraints, allowing the young heroes to go all out in combat and they have allowed the robotic enforcers in the ring, Paladins, to also use maximum force against the kids.

The parents have no say-so in this at all; the government runs the show and it seems to have taken the kids into custody because of their abilities before it got the idea of distracting them (and everyone else) by holding the contest.

SF or not, the feds come to your door after declaring your kid a non-person, they'll be taking him; 'not allowing' them is not an option.

In issue 3, we get to meet some of the kids who are not part of the games, who are perpetually on the run from the government.

At first that makes a good defense, but it only cements the stupidity off the adversaries even further.

Of all the plans to keep this kids under control and make them useful, THIS is what they came up with?

This is Underpants Gnome level planning.
