Superfreaks is a limited, 5-issue digital comic series that tells the story of a group of young teen sidekicks who have to step up when the main superheroes disappear. In Issue #3, “La Brute, the Mighty Vanguard, Red: all reveal their true natures in this highly-charged issue that’s packed with love, betrayal, friendship and action!”

In the following preview pages, the kids realize just how alone in things they really are, and that they’re going to have to try and do things differently if they expect to actually be able to help their city and earn any kind of respect.
