In a televised deathmatch between super-powered beings, one man enters to earn enough money for live-saving surgery ... but he's the only competitor without any powers.

In his twenty-nine years, Matthew Moxon had done virtually nothing with his record-breaking IQ and unparalleled problem solving abilities. Until one morning, after a dangerous fall lands him in the emergency room, he discovers that a tumor is pressing against his brain.

Unable to afford experimental but potentially life-saving surgery, Moxon takes drastic action; he volunteers for Arena Mode: 2041's most vicious sporting event, where thirteen superhumans fight in an urban combat zone for a multi-billion dollar prize.

Moxon is forced to battle opponents possessing ungodly speed, strength, and abilities once thought to exist only across the pages of superhero comics - and he's armed with nothing more than his rapidly-diminishing brain cells.

With the odds stacked impossibly against him, Moxon fights to not only survive the wrath of the other competitors, but to unlock the mysteries buried within the Arena itself.

An R-rated superhuman adventure story that would appeal to fans of Amazon's The Boys.

It combines the arena-style environment that was popularized in Hunger Games and Japanese cinema's Battle Royale, but adds a modern twist.

Brynja is a 'perception' - she doesn't exist unless someone observes her, so she has no control over her own physical appearance.

'Sledge' Lewis is a Hulk-sized monstrosity with endless power, but he has no desire to hurt anyone in the tournament. 

'Russia's Son' Sergei Taktarov is an anti-Superman style character, who is the frontrunner to win the tournament. His skin can't be pierced, and he seemingly has no weaknesses.
