London. An ordinary city, with one small difference: superheroes - commonly called 'capes' - exist. But apart from their powers, they're ordinary people, with the same problems the rest of us have. They spend much of their downtime in the basement bar The Fortress ('superheroes only: no masks, no powers, no heroics') but when not there or on duty they garden, go shopping, and do the laundry just like everyone else. No Heroics focuses on four friends and the trials and tribulations of their lives, but these superheroes are at best B-listers, and constantly insulted and bullied by the arrogant Devlin - Excelsor, the most successful cape of his generation.
