Mega Centurions – They saved the world. Now they struggle to pay rent

As the Mega Centurions, Cassidy, Reggie, and Thad saved the world from an alien invasion led by Prince Venkor. Unfortunately, things went downhill after that. They lost their powers and were unable to prove they were the Mega Centurions. Now, they work stressful jobs in the big city and struggle to pay the rent. Things change once they meet the Grey Knight, an interstellar mercenary and former henchman for the prince. Grey warns of a second invasion and asks for their help in protecting the Earth. Can she be trusted and can they be heroes without powers?

Coming from Scout Comics, Mega Centurions is by writer Jon Parrish, art by Dexter Wee, color by Kote Carvajal, lettering by Cristian Docolomansky, and edited by Steven Forbes.
