Have you ever tried to restart your life? Not as easy as the movies let you believe it would be. Take our Vision Boy… The world mostly views him as a drunkard, a low-life good only to drop money on losers’ bet. It’s not that he is handsome or homely; instead it’s about how well he decides to take care of himself. He is smart and dedicated and simply hasn’t resolved yet to embrace the higher purpose he has. Many of us don’t!

Look at the future Vision Girl. She is wasting away in a roach infested apartment, even though she had seen real evil, faced monsters, won the right to stand tall and proud. And yet, here she is… Misguided. Relying on her beauty; putting her faith in a fickle society and their definition of success, their blind perception of attractiveness… So much potential… So little trust…

No, he had to take the spirit, the soul and the body… No prisoners left behind! And that would destroy a mind like nothing else. Coming back from that evil cunning, that deliberate devastation, that incredible high and unique pleasure is impossible… For most…

But here they are. All parts of a bigger piece, each of them the shining and guiding light that will serve as a beacon to the goodness, the dedication and the selflessness that reside in the others.

This will be their city…
