Synopsis for "Worse Things"

16 super powered teens were taken by Arcade to Murderworld to fight each other to the death.

Arcade seems to have sufficient technology to physically capture and hold all 16 of them. After releasing them from stasis, some of the teens attacked Arcade but to no avail. The teens stopped when it appears that Arcade can't be defeated. Arcade instructs the teens that if they want to survive they will have to kill for it.

Arcade then decided to kill Hazmat who continues to openly defy Arcade. But Mettle, who is also Hazmat's boyfriend, sacrificed himself instead and was killed by Arcade.

Now, 15 teens remain, who will be the next to die?

Solicit Synopsis

Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including cult faves like members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant there.

Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive? The rising star team of Dennis Hopeless (X-MEN: SEASON ONE) and Kev Walker (THUNDERBOLTS) dare you to tune in to your new favorite comic NOW!


  • Cover's an homage to the Japanese movie Battle Royale.
    • In addition, Arcade claims he got the idea for the scenario from "a couple of kids' books I read in the pen." This is most likely a reference to the "Hunger Games" series of Young Adult novels.
