After using their new superpowers to defeat their evil mentors, James, Hayden, Sam, Emily, and Lana are ready to join the League of Heroes. But as their induction into the League draws near, they are framed by a group of rogue Heroes and given life sentences on the Perch, and the only one who can clear their names is missing. Unsure of who to trust or where to turn, the teens’ new skills are further put to the test when a group of strange Shadow people start trailing their every move and the Vindico, their group of evil mentors, are let out of prison.
