The world has gone horribly wrong. A waking nightmare where a totalitarian despot rules a devastated countryside. Where mutated animals walk like men... and enslaved humanity crawls to avoid its master's whip. This is a world where justice fell into the sea with the California coastline, and hope is blanketed in the pea-green mist that darkens the sky. A world in desperate need of a hero... a Rebel. Populated with characters both familiar and shocking, this book challenges expectations of mainstream super hero comics, and establishes a new breed of hero for the Marvel Universe. Expect a unique band of freedom fighters forging their own trail of tears through a gamma-irradiated desert the best way they can. No excuses asked for, none given. Expect the worst mankind has to offer bubbling to the surface of America, and spilling out over the godforsaken west. Expect a reluctant hero of a different breed. A man with the power to blaze his own trail, but just a man nonetheless.
