Five years ago, during a hunt that lasted for several weeks, the superhero known as Psypher finally confronted and battled the terrorist known as Living Nightmare. During this battle, the hero managed to distract and trap the Living Nightmare long enough for the police to unmask and arrest this madman. His real name was Mark Beauradin and he was a low level chemist at GL Motors.
Psypher, however, got fatally injured during the battle and died right there on the spot of his last victory, after almost twenty years in service of the people of the city. He was revealed to be Jonathan Spade, a small time physics teacher and his heroic deeds awarded him a posthumous badge of honor.
Five years later a series of terror attacks, not unlike those the Living Nightmare was responsible for, rock the nation. While Beauradin himself is still in prison, it looks like somebody else has taken up his mantle and continues his work. But rumor has it a mysterious cloaked figure has been seen lately, stalking the criminals. Now the people of New Steed City are asking if Psypher is back, if he survived his battle with Living Nightmare or if somebody else has taken over the identity of the hero.
