Adam thinks his life is over. His big chance to be a superhero alongside his idol, Zenith, has turned into a nightmare that saw several people die right in front of him. Hoping to get perspective from his mentor, Adam soon finds that the fantasy veil of Zenith's public persona has been wiped away and he is getting a painful peek behind the curtain. When questions about motivation and responsibility turn to violence, Adam soon finds that the Zenith Corporation has a very tight hold on the media and what is presented as "the truth." With the government stepping in to the picture it is only a matter of time before everything crumbles into chaos. Zak Penn and Scott Murphy bring big screen heroics back to comics in Hero Worship.
