About Mace and Sputnik
The streets of Haven City are filled with crime and villainy. The scourge that plagues Haven City knows only two boundaries; they’re called Mace and Sputnik. The two heroes are Mason and Nicky Wells.
They are the children of genius scientists, Mathew and Annie Wells. Ten years earlier the Wells parents were the greatest American minds of their time. They were the founders and architects of Olympia City. Olympia City is a luxury corporate state for VIPs that hovers in the clouds above Haven City. In partnership with Olymp-tek, the Wells parents were about to have world renown with their greatest discovery. Tragically their lives were taken in an explosion in their flying zeppelin home. All that survived the accident was Nicky’s toy Roba-sphere. Damaged but intact, Nicky kept the toy to always remember her parents.
Old enough to take guardianship, Mason at the age of 24 and Nicky 13, move back to Haven city to their family owned Salvage yard. When moving in, a unwelcomed biker gang hassles the brother and sister. By accident or fate the Roba-sphere is reactivated and gives the two heroes power suits to fend off the danger. Nicky the child prodigy discovers that the Roba-sphere has been converted into an artificial intelligence able to solve infinite problems and materialize solutions. This is their parent’s legacy that may have led to their death. The Roba-sphere is unstable and unpredictable do to its damage from years earlier. This makes it a liability to anyone who possesses it. Mason and Nicky decide to take on the burden of its safe keeping, while using their power to clean up the streets as their alter-egos: Mace and Sputnik.
The CEO of Olymp-tek, Thomas Burrows catches wind of this powerful duo and their amazing power. Burrows appoints his criminal liaison, Mr. Rysden, to investigate the heroes and the threat they pose to Olymp-tek’s sinister initiative for power. The two heroes fight mafia, gangs, and cult following radicals, but their greatest challenge is keeping their sanity living a double life. On top of the regular pressures of a crime-fighter, Nicky has puberty and French class to compete with. Mason’s love for his sister keeps him from pursuing his dream baseball career. Mason barely provides for himself and Nicky as a mechanic at their salvage yard homestead. If life is not hard enough being a regular Joe, it just got tougher being a superhero.
