In the beautiful, Californian coastal city of San Lorenzo, people with spectacular powers exist, powers that most people imagine only exist in comic books and in fantasy novels. These power users - operating in the secrecy of backstreets, alleyways, and the city nights - attempt to harness their abilities to do everything from earning money, to saving innocents, to taking revenge on those who have wronged them. But there's an issue: All power users suffer from the same curse, a curse of failure. Any time that an empowered individual tries to use their abilities in pursuit of a goal, that person inevitably, without variation, fails at accomplishing their task. Whenever a power use does experience some sort of success, something always, always happens to undo their victory; earned money is somehow lost, saved innocents die later in horrible accidents, and revenge is visited upon them threefold. All empowered individuals know of this curse, as it haunts them every day, and every personal catastrophe caused by their powers is a reminder that they can never escape from it. Even so, these souls struggle on the San Lorenzan streets, using these cursed abilities granted to them by some unknown, capricious force, willing to take their inevitable failures head-on, all in an attempt to achieve their dreams.
