"Mankind to the third Power" logo

"Mankind has evolved again. 

First from Cro-Magnon man to modern day humans, and now from modern day to people with abilities.

Mankind has evolved.

This new evolution has allowed people do things not humanly possible.

People can breathe underwater, run faster, use their minds in ways never thought before.   People thought it was a curse, an environmental thing. But it was just evolution.

As more and more mankindx3’s start to appear, mankindx2 quickly race for either a cure or a solution to this growing epidemic.  

These newly evolved humans are being hunted, jailed, examined and exterminated. 

Welcome to the third Evolution of man."

This is for a comic book I wrote which I will be pitching hopefully soon.
