Collecting the first five issues! A middle-aged man has suddenly transformed into a teenage super hero. If it happened to you, would you ever change back?

Chris Vargas is a 40-something man with a hacking cough, an obsolete job and a bombastic secret: whenever he likes, he can transform into the teenage super hero Captain Kid! In this, his first recorded adventure, he encounters Helea, a mysterious woman who knows more about him than he does, and Halliday, a mad businessman with a catastrophic weapon!

From Mark Waid (Spider-Man, Daredevil & Kingdom Come), Tom Peyer (The Atom), Wilfredo Torres (Jupiter’s Circle), and Brent Peeples (TMNT) comes the BRAND NEW series that HAD to be told at AFTERSHOCK COMICS!
