In a gritty and alternate 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so uncover a sinister plot that puts all of humanity in grave danger.
It's dark, brooding and filed with some great sets and backdrops for the heroes.
Then there's the more fantastical side of things.
And though the added sex and violence was unnecessary I didn't have any problems with a lot of the minor changes. But like other MoFo's, I really didn't like the super-human abilities the regular heroes had.
