"It struck in the wake of World War II, a mysterious disease that killed almost 90 percent of those infected. A few of the survivors gained extraordinary powers while others were blighted with severe disabilities. Some of those afflicted chose to use their new abilities to help the human race. But some took a different path. In Aces high, it's the 1980s, but a 1980s both like and unlike our own. Now, after centuries of travel through space, an extraterrestrial being called the Swarm is headed for Earth. Meanwhile, some of the aces given superpowers by the virus are hatching conspiracies to control the human world. These factions are about to collide ... and the fallout could be catastrophic"--Page 4 of cover.
