At the United Nations, John Fortune has assembled a team of young heroes known as The Committee to assist at the trouble spots around the world — including zombies in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, a freak nuclear explosion in Texas, and a showdown with the forces of the oil-rich Islamic caliphate in the Middle East.
But The Committee's opponents have their own Aces and Jokers ready to do battle, including a Marxist revolutionary, a brutal mercenary, a boy with apocalyptic powers, and — most terrifyingly of all — a sinister arm of the FBI known as SCARE.
