From a diverse team of creators composed of differing genders, gender identities, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations comes a groundbreaking new series featuring the world’s first transgender superhero! As the world struggles to accept the emergence of a new kind of mutant species known as alterations, or “Alters,” a young woman begins her transition from male to female only to find herself also transitioning into a powerful Alter. Faced with persecution by the multi-powered fascist known only as Matter Man, she will face the world as Chalice--a hero for a new age. But as Chalice navigates the path to becoming her true self, she must juggle the complications of her civilian life and the responsibilities of her newfound power. This groundbreaking series--years in the making--begins the saga of a young woman who can only really be herself…whenever she is not herself.

The story of No-Damn-Name, a loving mother Chapter 2: Reflections Sensing that time is running out on the safety of the world's newest Alter, Chalice expands her search. But as she closes in, new complications arise: Chalice finds herself juggling impossible responsibilities to her family, her Alters family, and an impoverished, now-homeless family she barely even knows. As past guilts intensify, she must stand fast against the pressure of her new responsibilities, or be consumed. 'In essence, any superhero comic where the hero has a secret identity, can be seen as a metaphor for identity issues. However, Alters ramps this metaphor up to eleven.' -Andy Hall of comiccrusaders.com From the writer of Wolverine: Origin, Sentry and Hellblazer with artwork by 2007 Russ Manning Award finalist Leila Leiz!
