Abby Hamilton is the younger sister of the Red Comet, her city's most beloved superhero. Abby just wants to get the lead role in her school's musical, and maybe get a few minutes of attention from her father and her busy superhero brother. But when a new supervillain, the Iron Phantom, arrives in town and begins to talk to Abby, things get a bit more complicated. Between rehearsing for the musical, hiding secrets from her family and best friend, trying to help the Phantom with unraveling a dastardly conspiracy, and subsequently dealing with her budding feelings for the Iron Phantom, Abby has a lot on her plate. The people of Morriston might believe that only superheroes can save the day, but Abby shows that anyone with courage and determination can be a hero.
