Your parents are dead. Your little sister thinks she's Lobo. Child Protective Services wants to talk to you. Three of your best friends have superpowers they hate. And you've just inherited a Winnebago. What do you do? Road trip! THE TITANS' Devin Grayson joins the BATMAN: HARLEY QUINN art team of Yvel Guichet and Aaron Sowd to introduce the Weinbergs in RELATIVE HEROES, a 6-issue miniseries filled with enough action, humor and superhuman drama to attract both diehard super-hero buffs and readers newer to comics. After the death of their parents, the Weinbergs decide they've "had an origin," and pile into the late Mr. Weinberg's Winnebago to traverse the DCU in search of Superman, their grail of steel. Led by the only powerless sibling, Joel (a.k.a. Houston), a teenager who learned everything he knows about being a team leader from comic books, the Weinbergs are a family whose powers reflect their personalities: 11-year-old Aviva (Temper), whose electric powers make her tantrums deadlier than most; adopted brothers Tyson (Blindside), an African American, treated like an invisible man, who possesses the power to disappear, and Cameron (Omni), so outgoing he's unaware that he mimics the powers of the super-beings near him. They're joined on their road trip by Temper's baby-sitter, Damara (Allure), who is well liked by everyone...especially boys. But is she loved for who she is or because of her "charm spell?" Their adventures pit them against the police, the Department of Extranormal Operations, Child Protective Services, super-villains, and test their own limitations as a family and as human beings. The very powers they possess bring them into direct confrontation with the worst aspects of adolescence, the capacity to inflict harm, a heightened sense of social invisibility, uncontrollable, uncomfortable feelings around members of the opposite sex, and the heady feeling that you can do anything at all, as long as your friends are there with you.
