The Mindstorm is the story of Marcus Hamilton, a gay, African-American, teenager who is born with incredible telekinetic powers. He has the ability to levitate considerably large objects with his mind, create telekinetic force fields, and fly. After preventing a convenience store hold-up, he decides to become a superhero and takes the name Mindstorm.
There are two story arcs: 1) Marcus’ everyday life and high school problems, including racism, homophobia, and his first same-sex relationship; and, 2) Marcus, as Mindstorm, developing his powers and confronting Nathan Vaughn, a corrupt industrialist/weapons developer, terrorist, and main antagonist.
