The cover of "Steel Rain" #1:
Synopsis: Chief of Police Marsha Rivers is about to meet a man who will change her life forever. His name is Special Agent
Jim Smithers of the F.B.I. Super-Physical Education & Enforcement Division (S.P.E.E.D.), and he doesn't have a bouquet of
flowers. What he does have is a list of 7 mutants who are interested in an "S.P." crime task force project, with her name
written all over it. So, Marsha leaps headlong into what will become the world-renown organization known as... "Steel Rain".
They are: BlackStar: the struggling but passionate artist whose body is a living electrical generator; She-Wolf: BlackStar's
beautfiul and ferocious wife with a body that's been spliced with a wolf's DNA, endowing her with superhuman strength, speed
and senses; Switchblade: the night-vamp street punk with a range of electromagnetic eye-beams and a sarcastic streak a mile
long; Blockade: a street-wise athlete whose steel-hard physique allows great feats of strength, but carries a great weight
of responsiblity; Silverstorm: Jim Smithers' serious-minded and intellectual daughter capable of reforming ferrous metal at
will, and the only registered mutant capable of flight; Monarch: Silverstorm's angst and rebellious sister who is a high-scale
telekinetic; and Odyssey: the spiritual and mysterious psychic and empath who specializes in psychokinetic healing.
As the cast comes together to investigate and take down an elusive cult called "The Night Church", they discover the dangerous
road they are about to travel. Allegiances change, secrets are revealed and the death toll rises as Steel Rain gets closer
to the heart of the Night Church and the chaos, in a man know as "The Father". Not all of them will survive this baptism of
fire, and none will ever be the same, but you will never forget how it all began...
"Welcome to the Real World!"
