Meanwhile, Zachary Levi and his wife, Joanne (Judith Shekoni) lost their son in the same disaster, which made them hate all people with superpowers so much that they wanted them all dead.

They killed a bunch of them during a superhero support group meeting, but Peter Pan (Robbie Kay, who can teleport things by touching them) managed to escape, got a job at an ice cream parlor with the girl he likes, and was tormented by a bully who was secretly a tragic figure with an abusive dad....
