A tale about the ultimate celebrity, an indestructible superhero called Zenith, and the rabid fans that worship him. Legions of adoring fans follow every disaster trying to speculate where they can catch a glimpse of their modern messiah. What happens when an unhealthy obsession leads to one fan getting super powers of his own?
Hero Worship takes place in an America fascinated by its single superhuman, the ultimate celebrity known as Zenith. Crowds show up in the thousands whenever a disaster takes place, eager to see him in action (and sometimes putting themselves in danger just for a glimpse). For the young man named Adam, Zenith is a bit of an obsession — he idolizes and constantly thinks about Zenith in the way that other people might devote themselves to a rock band, a sports athlete, or a television show. So what happens when one day, Adam himself begins to develop powers of his own? When he’s become the very thing he once revered? Adam discovers that Zenith’s existence is not anything like he once dreamed — it’s a dangerous new landscape of manipulation and media, marketing and mania.
