Six super powered children lead an idyllic life fighting crime under their mentor/adoptive father, Dr Barrie They are: Finley: Superhuman speed and flight. Maria: Hyperspace inventory. Gillian:Superhuman strength and durability Gregory: Mastery of magnetism. Harold: Power over heat. Janet: Light and sound manipulation. But one day they wake up to discover that it was all a lie, they aren't orphans given super abilities to save their lives as babies, they're genetically engineered lifeforms, raised in a virtual reality environment based on American comics from the 1950's and 60's, and even their powers work differently in real life. So how could they react to modern Aussie society?
