What would you do If you were the most powerful man alive?
At the heart of Beyond Men and Monsters is The Superman Theory. It states that certain men are meant to be above normal laws and morals because they provide an unprecedented benefit to society. For example, Napoleon murdered tens of thousands of people through his wars, yet was regarded as a hero who made France into a much better country.
This theory has intrigued twenty-seven year old Jesse Keane most of his life because he possesses unparalleled physical power yet lives a normal life. Everything changes when Jesse is unable to save his girlfriend from being violently raped, an experience that convinces Jesse he needs to use his powers to save those in need. Eventually Jesse learns first hand how the world works by moving into different roles such as vigilante crime fighter, national defender, international peace keeper, and finally, world leader.
Volume 1 deals with Jesse's rise to power, while volume 2 will deal with the results.
