1: Homicide partners for just over a year now, Evan and Ben were on a case of cult killings. Their investigations led them to an abandoned section of sewers, above a residential district near downtown Philadelphia. However, the two men walk into a trap, setting off a series of explosives wired to take down all the tunnels in a quarter-mile radius. Unbeknown to his partner, Evan is a supernatural man, whose orders are always obeyed, by human or object alike. He prevents the explosion, saving himself, his partner, and the people who would have been caught in the collapse from certain death. However, the use of his powers come at a steep price, and Evan begins to become the power-crazed tyrant he believed he had destroyed fifteen years ago. Now it is a race against time, and Ben must come to terms with the truth about his partner and find a way to stop him, before the whole world falls under the heel of his boot.
