Epic Zero: Tales of a Not-So-Super 6th Grader

All Elliott Harkness wants is to be a superhero. His parents are superheroes. His older sister is a superhero. Heck, even his dog is a superhero. But Elliott has a problem—he’s a “Zero”—which is super-speak for powerless! So, while his family is off fighting crime, Elliott is stuck muddling through middle school.

Elliott feels ever-so-ordinary, until a mysterious girl changes everything. For some reason, she believes Elliott is the only one who can capture a mega-powerful, extraterrestrial orb before it falls into the wrong hands. But with menacing supervillains and globe-conquering aliens closing in fast, will Elliott find the power to be the epic hero he’s always wanted to be—or will he always be just an Epic Zero?

      

Epic Zero 2: Tales of a Pathetic Power Failure

Elliott Harkness finally has powers and is a full-fledged member of the Freedom Force, the greatest superhero team on Earth. Elliott should be over the moon, but he quickly realizes that having powers is one thing, controlling them is quite another! So, after yet another botched mission, Elliott finds himself grounded.

But Elliott’s punishment is short-lived when he’s kidnapped by a band of teenage, alien outlaws who believe he’s the only one capable of destroying a planet-eating monster that’s annihilating worlds. To stop it, Elliott must use the Orb of Oblivion, the most powerful weapon in the universe. Unfortunately, he blew it to pieces months ago! But that’s just the start of his problems, as he’s swept up in a galactic adventure complete with interstellar enemies and cosmic beings beyond his wildest imagination!

            

Epic Zero 3: Tales of a Super Lame Last Hope

Elliott Harkness is finally legit. He’s learned the superhero ropes and even saved the world a few times. But when Elliott makes a major mistake during a do-or-die mission, his confidence is shattered and he decides to hang up his tights … for good!

Unfortunately, a new threat forces Elliott to put his early retirement plans on hold. A cosmic creep called The Herald is heading for Earth, and bringing Ravager, the Annihilator of Worlds, with him! To stop the planet-eating monster, Elliott needs the Orb of Oblivion. There’s just one problem—it no longer exists! Desperate for another Orb, Elliott realizes he must somehow travel to a mirror universe to find one. And that’s the least of his troubles! The multiverse is collapsing, and only one universe will survive!

             

 Epic Zero 4: Tales of a Total Waste of Time

Elliott Harkness thinks he has it all figured out. He's (sort of) in control of his powers and finally living the superhero life. But after a not-so-heroic encounter with a time-traveling crook, Elliott wakes up one morning to discover everyone in his life is gone... and he might be next!

Elliott realizes the time-trotting trouble-maker has traveled into the past and changed everything! In order to fix his reality, Elliott must follow him. However, he can’t mess with history or reveal his true identity, otherwise he might set off a chain reaction that alters his present forever! But his own existence is up for grabs when he meets his parents as young adults, and they hate each other! And that’s not all! A mysterious villain is searching for a powerful cosmic object that threatens the universe, and it may be buried in the past!

            

Epic Zero 5: Tales of an Unlikely Kid Outlaw

Elliott Harkness still has lots to learn. After all, not everyone loves superheroes. And when Elliott accidentally damages Keystone City’s subway system while stopping a pair of dangerous villains, he’s suddenly labeled as a menace to society!

Elliott is scheduled to appear on national television to explain what happened, but before he can defend himself, he’s arrested by a squad of Intergalactic Paladins and brought before a council of aliens who believe Elliott is responsible for the escape of the dreaded Krule the Conqueror! If Elliott can’t prove his innocence, he’ll be banished into the 13th Dimension forever! And if that’s not frightening enough, Elliott learns his friend Wind Walker is trapped inside the 13th Dimension, and only Elliott can save him!

         

Epic Zero 6: Tales of a Major Meta Disaster

Elliott Harkness is always (kind of) ready to answer the call for justice. That is, until a new law is passed where all Meta heroes are required to surrender themselves to the government. But when the Freedom Force resist and get captured by the military, Elliott is the Metas’ only hope!

Elliott visits the White House to get the law reversed and discovers a sinister secret that changes everything. The shape-shifting Skelton have been on Earth for years, and they’ve infiltrated the highest ranks of the government! But they aren’t the only ones trying to take over the planet. The dreaded Krule the Conqueror has captured the Skelton Homeworld, and now he’s headed straight for Earth!

Before the Freedom Force, the Protectors of the Planet defended the globe from evil. They were the greatest Meta team of their time, until they were betrayed by one of their own leading to tragedy. In the aftermath, Meta-Man, the most powerful hero of them all, abandoned his adopted home of Earth and the Protectors disbanded. But now, decades later, an unstable Meta-Man has returned for revenge against his former teammates—and it’s up to Elliott to stop him! But who really betrayed the Protectors? And can Elliott find Meta-Man’s archenemy in time to help defeat the former hero?

Tormentus, the Underworld’s Snatcher of Souls, has resurfaced! He’s declared war on humanity and unleashed an army of Meta zombies to take over the world! As Tormentus defeats the heroes one-by-one, Elliott is the planet’s last hope.
