BX Heroes2.0's new character, "Heavy Traffic: The Last Bronx Hero", is a tale of environmental and political activist, John Dominguez. Upon his release in prison, John utilizes information he acquired from his cell mate to take down a very large drug deal between the cops and local mobsters controlling the Hunts Point Docks. John Dominguez doesn't stop the drug deal to end crime. He's not that naive. His intentions are to document, black mail and subvert these crooked deizens into a payoff. A payoff that will bankroll his personal war of terror against the politicians and local law enforcement who allow
corruption to flourish in the streets of the Bronx. Catch the sneak previews on our website: www.aworld withoutsuperheroes.com and on our comics tab on this site.
