Chapter 1

It was the 14th of March 2042 at the town hall of Chicago. Just two days ago the world witnessed a solar flare that would have destroyed the world. But the hero made the ultimate sacrifice by absorbing the flare. Even though he was pyro kinetic was too much and it killed him. Now he is about to have a city wide funeral because Chicago knew him more than anyone else.

Soon after, on board the freedom eagle head quarters of the international heroics. All the heroes where talking to one another of back fire's life and giving sympathies to Aeriea and Pyronight. Green beret walked up to them and said "I am very sorry for your lose Ryan was a good man and an inspiration to us all" "thank you Franklin you sympathies are much appreciated" said aria. Terminator walked up to the balcony that was looking over the rest of the bridge and activated the loud speakers and stated to make a big speech to all the heroes. "Ryan Davison was a great man, he always helped anyone he could, fought the fight no one would, and to all of us he was a friend to us all." He stepped down and gestured to Aeriea to come up and say some words about her husband. She came up to the balcony and said "thank you frank that was very touching. Ryan also known as Backfire to the world was a good friend, inspirational leader to the heroes, and a loving father, and husband. He always choose to make a stand even when he faced death itself, never gave into fear or anger, and always helped any one in need." She paused for a second trying to continue but just lost the will to finish and started to cry her daughter came up and helped her to calm down and walked her off the balcony. Terminator went back and told to give a toast to Backfire the greatest hero of them all.

Back in the main conference hall where the founding members usually meet to discuss important matters. as of right now Aeriea was sitting down crying over the lost of the one she loved and her daughter standing next to her giving her comfort. "it's ok mother" said Pyronight "dad wouldn't want you to get upset about this" Aeriea stopped for a moment and looked at her daughter strait in the eyes and said "it is just hard to accept that your father after dealing with so many problems that can kill him and yet it took just the power of the sun to finish him off". "I know mom but you know he wouldn't have taken the risk if their wasn't a good reason to." Aeriea paused then smiled and said "you are just like you father in many ways he is no doubt proud of you." Pyronight asked "do you know how it all started, the heroics, meeting you, how he became a hero?""as a matter of fact yes it stared many years ago I was still at paradise island at the time but the story I know well. It all started at the coasts of Chicago."
