Before he can make sensible reasoning behind his miraculous talents, or fully explore his budding relationship with his best friend Genesis, the United States is attacked and thrusted into war with China. As the chaos enfolds one question lingers; will Creed become the super hero everyone is expecting him to become and help in the war efforts, or will he simply endure like everyone else? Once the Army finds out about Creed, will he have a choice?
