The Project sends Indigo to investigate, and it soon becomes apparent that this is more than just a new designer distraction for the masses. Indigo, together with former Detective Ellen Waters race to find the source of the substance poisoning their people, before it's too late! The superhero universe where only black people have super powers continues to expand, for the first time with a new creative team building onto the exciting world created by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle & Khary Randolph.
