What if you found out your deadbeat father is a superhero? Would you leave your small-town life to take up the mantle of a father you never knew? For 18-year-old Lucas, the choice is an easy one: he's not going to leave behind his mother and his comfortable, if dead-end, life as a high school dropout and auto mechanic for a father who's never been around.
But his father--known officially as billionaire Clayton Hartwell, and secretly as the vigilante superhero the Raptor--tells Lucas that as he is dying, evil is growing, and the world needs Lucas to become the new Raptor. As Lucas spends time with his father observing his -heroic- behavior up close, he is left wondering about the line between good and evil, and if good is only a matter of perspective.
