Simon McFarlane is Sparks, the heat-impervious and super-fast sidekick to local superhero Aero. Together they fight crime and save lives, but their arch rival is a villain they call Blackout, who shrouds the scenes of his crimes in impenetrable darkness. Simon’s been enamored of Aero since he was a teenager, so keeping his crush in check while they work together is extra difficult now that he knows the man behind the mask. Simon’s attempt to get Aero to see him as an equal backfires when he’s kidnapped and wakes up in Blackout’s lair. Like so many other sidekicks, Sparks is being used as the bait to get Aero where Blackout wants him. Will Aero finally be able to see what’s right in front of him?
