It's the early years of the Twenty-First Century.
Without the guidance and values long championed by the
old guard - Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman - a younger generation of super heroes is ravaging the
world. But when the Man of Steel returns from a self-imposed exile, his very presence could be the catalyst that pushes us all into Armageddon. Seen through the
eyes of Norman McCay, an aging minister who embarks on
a disturbing odyssey of revelation with an angel known
as the Spectre to guide him, Kingdom Come is the story of what defines a hero in a world spinning inexorably out of control... of the heroes who adapted to that changing world, and those who couldn't... of the personal battles fought with inner demons, and of the
final war that would determine the fate of our planet.
