The first story arc is three issues:
#1: "The Two Wrongs"
As the series begins, Ethan and Vincent have been deliberately irritating one another, each hoping that the other will eventually move out. And at the same time they've been using their costumed identities to blow off steam... at each other. In the middle of all this, Vincent is rejected by his father's supervillain group, The Masked Circle. Back at the apartment, Vincent is further humiliated when he is caught eavesdropping on Ethan and his girlfriend. Ethan viciously berates Vincent, and Vincent secretly vows that from then on, Ethan—not Star Fighter—will be his new archenemy.
#2: "What Goes Around"
As The Underlord, Vincent sets traps around the apartment to kill Ethan. Ethan panics, assuming that The Underlord has figured out his secret ID, and breaks up with his girlfriend to get her out of harm's way. Meanwhile, Vincent's brother attempts to reach him by phone, but Ethan keeps hanging up on him and deleting messages. After getting some advice from a fellow New York hero, Ethan tries to make peace with Vincent and warn him about The Underlord's attacks. But Vincent has other things on his mind. He has finally spoken to his brother, only to learn that his father is dead.
#3: "Past Repeating"
Ethan drives Vincent upstate to his father's funeral, where he hopes The Underlord won't find them. The two bond as Ethan learns more about Vincent's family and upbringing. Many members of The Masked Circle are present at the funeral, and when The Circle's enemies attack, it's all out chaos. As Star Fighter and The Underlord, the roommates find themselves on the same side trying to restore order. In their exchanges, Ethan realizes that XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX. XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XX. XXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX, XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXX, XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX.
Future arcs will continue to explore and complicate this emerging friendship. The second arc will introduce Vincent's sister into the series XX X XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX X XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX-XX-XXXXX XXX XXXXXXX. The third arc will provide perspective on Ethan and Vincent's current relationship by flashing back to how the two first came to share an apartment and to other formative experiences.
As Ethan and Vincent's friendship deepens, the stakes of the series will continue to rise. The greater their friendship, the greater a tragedy it will be when they eventually discover the truth about each other. The series will culminate with XX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX, XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXX XXXX-XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXX, and XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX.
