What would you do if you could become any superhero for just an hour? The catch? Who you become is absolutely random. The H-Dial returns to the DC Universe courtesy of Sam Humphries as part of Brian Michael Bendis' new imprint for young heroes: Wonder Comics!

When teenager Miguel Montez was ten years old, Superman saved his life--and since then, he's spent every waking hour trying to recapture the thrill of that moment. Unfortunately, life in the sleepy town of Devil's Canyon, California, is hardly an adrenaline rush--especially when you're stuck working at your uncle's mayonnaise-themed food truck.

But Miguel is about to get more excitement than he can handle. When a mysterious rotary phone appears in a life-or-death moment, a strange voice comes over the line saying that it has the power to transform him into a never-before-seen costumed champion--all he has to do is dial "H"!

Suddenly, Miguel becomes a superhero--or, more specifically, a bunch of different superheroes, with each new "call" lasting a single hour. But he also becomes a target--because the villainous Thunderbolt Club knows all about the power of the H-Dial, and its members will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Now it's up to Miguel and his new friend Summer to get the H-Dial into the hands of the one man who can protect it--a certain Man of Steel!

Crafted by writer Sam Humphries (and artist Joe Quinones(Wednesday Comics), Dial H for Hero Vol. 1: Enter the Heroverse launches a new era of action with an astounding array of young superheroes and an incredible variety of art styles! Collects issues #1-6 of the acclaimed new series from DC's Wonder Comics--curated by comics legend Brian Michael Bendis!
