After witnessing the demise of most of her StormWatch teammates, Jenny Sparks wants to create a new super hero team dedicated to protecting Earth against threats of a global scale.

Collected in this edition are their first two missions, battling a nation of super-powered terrorists and stopping an invasion from a parallel world.
