Heroes Haven is set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, where scientists are developing a drug — called V-1 — designed to awaken ‘Superhero DNA Code’ in the human body. As V-1 testing commences to enlighten and heal the dregs of LA, the drug begins to ‘synergize,’ awakening gifts like healing, super strength, visions and telekinesis in its subjects.
These gifts, however, come with a price: side effects include madness, acute psychotic episodes, body altering paralysis, degeneration, suicide and insane fits of rage that lead to murders.
In the dark shadows, a secret society is stealing the drug to test on death row inmates and create immortal super soldiers. As the power of this secret society grows, the imminent dangers of tyranny and oppression now face all of mankind. The battle begins to control the drug that will create a new world order.
The only hope to save humanity? The societal outcast test subjects from Heroes Haven who managed to escape the facility and survive the psychotic, emotional and physical altercations, becoming ‘The Awakened Ones.’ It’s up to them to decide if they will ‘Awaken Their Inner Hero’ and fight for the freedom of mankind.
Mario Simone began his writing career on an extensive worldwide expedition, where he hiked through Thailand, Bali, Lombok and the Gigli Islands. He traveled through mystical villages hidden deep within mountains and learned the ancient arts of communication and storytelling. He then hiked the Himalayas through India and Italy, where he slept in dilapidated churches and wrote poetry in attics where famous artists like Michelangelo sculpted. He landed in Spain and then sealed his fate by running with the bulls in Pamplona, vowing that if he can survive this, making movies should be a walk in the park.
Simone founded Gotham City Films in 2009, where he has written and directed awarding-winning films with A-list talent such as Jessica Biel, Slash, Tony Hawk and Hilary Duff. Simone’s original comic book, Heroes Haven, was published by Gotham City Films and is now available for purchase.
