The story begins with the birth of 43 infants with superpowers in the mid-20th century. While this is not a unique feat in itself, all the women showed no signs of being pregnant prior. Furthermore, all were born at the same time and display unique super-power abilities.

After which, Wealthy entrepreneur and famous scientist Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopts seven of these surviving children. Unbeknownst to the world, Hargreeves is actually an alien in disguise. Furthermore, he intends to train the children in preparation of an impending world threat.
