He befriended the brash teen hero with reality-altering abilities, Kid Impossible, fell in love with Miranda, the Rune Girl, and was eventually welcomed into the premier superhero team, First Line, by his idol and solar-powered champion, Solara. Then he grew up. Dynamo tells the story of a boy turned hero by a moment of senseless trauma, grown into a man lost between identities, facing off against a villain with a mirrored backstory and a terrible plan to make the whole world orphans. Now one of the most recognized heroes in the world with his own branded video game, Dynamo can spout catchphrases brainstormed by his PR guy, Marco, and take selfies with the tourists—but he can’t put together a …show more content…

They are quickly defeated and captured by the aliens, tiny blue creatures that domesticate bees and build technology for hire, including a gun that can nullify Dynamo’s superpowers and several unidentified high-tech devices shaped like triangles. The two are rescued by an irritable Miranda and find little more to go on at the Xanx’ii
