It has all come to this... Despite his best efforts Joseph Paxton was unable to prevent his best friend and teammate Lt. Nadia Chavez from being transformed into an unstoppable killing machine at the hands of the insidious dark science cabal known as the The Store. In response to Lt. Chavez's slaughter of the town of San Miguel, the Mexican government had little choice but to call upon the power of their greatest heroes, The Golden Brigade, and a battalion of their finest soldiers to put an end to Lt. Chavez's rampage by any means necessary. Unwilling to abandon his friend to her fate, Paxton along with his new-found allies, Keith Dawson, world-renowned scientist Annabella Scuzleoni and her father Vincent, undertake a last ditch effort to head off the inevitable confrontation between Chavez and an army bent on her destruction. ...our story continues.
Thirty five years have passed since the fall of The Great Heroic Age. The world has become a cynical place that rejects the notion of masked superhuman protectors in favor of a more militaristic guardian. A cold and unfeeling protector, yet one that can be held accountable for its actions. However, this Age of Guardians is not all that it seems. As our story unfolds, the distinction between hero and villain will become clearer. This clarity may spell the fall of the Age of Guardians...and the rise of a Second Heroic Age. Intrepid is the story of a heroic band of individuals thrown together by chance who stumble upon a vast conspiracy. As their investigation deepens and the threat becomes clearly defined, they will discover that more than their lives, or even their world, stands at risk. The Age of Guardians has ended. Long live the Intrepid!
