Led by the original patriotic superhero The Shield, the New Crusaders defend the city of Red Circle from evil in the tradition of the Mighty Crusaders, America’s greatest superhero team!
Over a decade ago, The Mighty Crusaders did the impossible: they won. Successful in their battle against evil and finding they'd made the world a better place, the heroes founded the town of Red Circle to start families, unwind and take a much-deserved rest. For all their kids (and some of their spouses!) know, these everyday people have spent their entire lives as accountants, teachers, lawyers and handymen--totally normal.
When a vicious and deadly villain from their past returns, the heroes vanish, their families shattered, and only one of them remains standing: the Shield.
The Shield collects the remaining children of the lost Red Circle heroes and ushers them to safety in an underground bunker--the last remaining vestige of their parents' past lives--to reveal the truth about their parents, the monster that took them, and their own unique super-powers.
