Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
This action-packed graphic novel follows the adventures of three inspirational superheroes to explore the issues of the climate emergency, for the individual and the planet. Beneath the Arctic ice, the Methanaur is awakening. If the deadly methane monster breaks free, it spells the end of civilization as we know it. Meet Professor Katelyn, Leon, and Mo - also known as The Renegades. Professor Kateyln is a whip-smart, sassy scientist who uses her 'Oracle Specs' to see into the future. Wrestling with his anger at the naysayers who don't seem to care about the environment, Leon has the ability to become invisible - the perfect spy! And then there's Mo who, in the wake of his brother's death in a cyclone, finds his courage and builds a Solar Supershield that can generate an electrical force strong enough to fight the deadliest of foes. Our superheroes grapple with multiple environmental threats, most deadly of all a monster that lurks beneath the melting Arctic permafrost. If it escapes, this creature of chaos will release huge plumes of methane gas into the atmosphere, changing the balance of our planet's climate forever. Can the Renegades work together to save Earth before it's too late?
