The TAPdemic Dozen

This year’s storyline transports us to “The Rhythmic Universe,” where a disaster has just occurred. Someone has eradicated all the A-List Superheroes and Villains from the planet. Who will come to everyone’s rescue?

Lo and behold, the only available “heroes” are the D-List sups and villains, who have long abandoned their craft. Assisted by the A-List Sidekicks, these former luminaries are summoned to rise to the occasion and restore balance to the universe.

Their mission is to locate the “Dyna-Tone,” a musical combination lock that, when unlocked with the correct tones, will bring back all the A-Listers. Jealousy, conflict, self-esteem, and hope all come into play during their journey. Will they succeed in finding the lock, deciphering the correct combination, and bringing back everyone who has vanished?
