Gag activity is on the increase; it looks like some kind of war is going on. If that was all that was happening, the super-powered heroes in the Big Apple would have no problem restoring law and order. But when villains such as the Werewolf and the Brothers Grimm--to name only three out of a dastardly couple of dozen--start appearing out of nowhere, the heroes' problem becomes much more complicated than just relieving some punks of their switchblades and baseball bats.
