- Apr 7, 2012I'm getting in on this a little late, but have you planned something special for homecoming? I imagine the heroes' parents were a previous group of heroes at Hope Prep. Then the next adventure is a flashback that focuses around the parent heroes. The whole thing can then connect to what the main team is focused on in the present.
Just casting a line. Hope it's useful.
