Tommy Zhou has built a device that can create objects from solid light. After making up a PR story about being raised by a secret order that taught him to form weapons from his own internal energy, Tommy soon becomes the target of an ancient society that believes he has discovered the long-lost mystic technique of the Order of Wu-Shi — “the way of the Weapon” — and they send waves of killers after him to steal it back in this action-packed Platinum Studios superhero adventure!
