In 1869, an alien life-pod crashes in the cotton fields of the American South. Discovered by a slave woman, the pod reconfigures the genetic structure of the extraterrestrial inside - and a full-grown, super-powered African-American male emerges. Now - one hundred and twenty years later - Augustus Freeman is a successful lawyer…who secretly uses his alien superpowers to help those in need. But when a teenaged girl from the streets convinces him to use his powers to inspire people, and becomes his sidekick, Rocket, Augustus Freeman embraces his destiny as Icon! Acclaimed comics and animation writer Dwayne McDuffie ("Justice League Unlimited") and artist Mark Bright ("Batman") present a thought-provoking action hero.
