Jack Knight is having a bad day. His older brother has been murdered, his father attacked, and he’s expected take up the family tradition — being Opal City’s guardian, Starman. Never mind that he’s never had any interest in being a superhero. Never mind that he’s being attacked left and right by old enemies without any idea of why. Will he rise to the occasion or will he prove his inner demons right — and fail?
