    Meet the F*O*O*J, the World's Greatest Heroes:

    OMNIPOTENT MAN: A body with the density of steel, and a brain to match

    THE FLYING SQUIRREL: Aging playboy industrialist by day, avenging krypto-fascist by night

    IRON LASS: Mythology's greatest warrior, but the world might be safer if she had a husband

    X-MAN: Formerly of the League of Angry Blackmen, but not formerly enough

    THE BROTHERFLY: Radioactively fly

    POWER GRRRL: Perpetually deciding between fighting crime or promoting her latest album, clothing line or sex scandal

    They're Earth's mightiest super-team. And dysfunctional as hell. Having survived arch-criminal assaults in the 1950s, intergalactic aggression in the 1960s, affirmative action battles in the 1970s, and having finally defeated all its arch-enemies in a battle global in the 1980s, the F*O*O*J finds itself in a peaceful world without super villains--and thus bereft of a mandate. Without external foes, the phenomenal F*O*O*Lsters are reduced to waging toxic office politics rife with their own arcane idiosyncrasies, bizarre perversions, mutual contempt and explosive neuroses, leading to what must sooner or later be a workplace super-powered civil war. Only one woman can save them from themselves: Dr. Janice Brain-Silverman, AKA Doctor Brain, the world's leading therapist for the extraordinarily-abled. But when the planet's most hallowed hero dies unexpectedly, career-ending depression descends, accusations fly and conspiracy theories boil--is the age of heroes truly over, or has an old foe returned to exact revenge on them all? Can the F*O*O*J survive its two greatest threats: assassination and group therapy?
