The series opens with a flashback of Bullseye blowing up the tenement building in Dark Reign: The List – Daredevil #1 . As emergency responders arrive, a glowing figure frees itself from the rubble.
A week later, in an area rife with drug trafficking and prostitution, a pimp pressures a new prostitute to get to work. Hand ninjas appear and attack all criminals in response to Daredevil’s orders to expand his sphere of influence. Just as a ninja is about to disfigure the new prostitute, a new costumed hero calling himself Power Man appears and rescues her, defeats the Hand ninjas, and beats up the criminals. The new Power Man returns the young prostitute to her parents, who hired him to bring her back. The new hero returns to his mother’s apartment after putting on a pizza delivery outfit. The new Power Man is Victor Alvarez – his father died in the tenement explosion while Victor, the glowing figure, was the only one who survived. After gaining his powers, he has offered his skills online as a hero for hire.
