Jay Faerber's homage to SuperHero {{comic books}} and {{soap opera}}s.
The series revolves around the Noble family, a wealthy, famous family of superheroes. In addition to fighting supervillains, the heroes face such challenges as infidelity, unplanned pregnancies, and the tabloids.

The main family members are:
* Dudley "Doc" Noble: A GadgeteerGenius who is more interested [[ForScience in working on inventions in his lab than spending any time with his family.]]
* Gaia: The matriarch of the family, who does everything she can to make herself and her family look good in the public eye. Currently divorced from Doc and serving a prison term.
* Rusty: The oldest son, a Super-Strong hero with a bad temper who had his consciousness transferred into a robotic body after nearly being beaten to death. In years since, he's struggled with his humanity, and, evidently, given in. He now speaks in a harsh monotone, doesn't use contractions, and rarely indicates emotion. [[spoiler: He's faking it.]]
* Frost: Gaia's son from an extra-marital affair with [[spoiler:The Doc Noble of an AlternateUniverse]]. Has ice-based powers and [[AntiHero a huge chip on his shoulder]].
* Race: The middle child. He has SuperSpeed and seems to be the nicest and most well-adjusted member of the family. [[WeHardlyKnewYe No wonder they killed him off at the end of the first issue...]]
* Zephyr: The youngest child. A teenage girl who sleeps around. This results in her getting knocked up by [[spoiler:Draconis, her father's archenemy]].
* Liz Donnely-Noble: A [[{{Muggle}} normal girl]] who runs a bookstore. Her good looks and unpretentious nature caused Race [[SoHappyTogether to fall in love with her and marry her.]] She continues to live in the Noble Family mansion after Race's death.
* Krennick: Race's best friend, and the son of Draconis, Doc Noble's ArchEnemy. A demon who [[MadLove holds unrequited feelings for Zephyr.]]
* Celeste: A publicity-hungry heroine with stellar energy powers who was married to Rusty, but had a long-standing affair with Frost.
* Olympia: Doc's second wife, a superstrong beauty queen with two children from a previous marriage.
* Surge: Olympia's son, and the youngest of the Nobles. In need of a serious attitude adjustment; gets on poorly with just about everyone due to his explosive temper.
* Minutae: Olympia's daughter. Extremely introverted and removed from social interactions, she strikes a quick friendship with Doc due to her love of science.
* Amy: Surge's girlfriend, who accused Frost of raping her after he resisted her advances. [[spoiler:The real Amy had actually been killed and replaced by a shapeshifting assassin before her introduction in the comic]].
* Slate Blackthorne: The youngest of the villainous Blackthorne family, who can turn into a gigantic rock-man and eventually abandoned his family to marry Zephyr.
