Siphon: Power Comes With A Price by Jason Fox
Apollo, a human-alien hybrid with the otherworldly and unwelcomed ability to kill with a touch, is born and imprisoned in Area 51. A moment of skin-to-skin contact with Apollo instantly turns a person to ash—and creates a massive surge of energy that temporarily ignites other superhuman powers within him. Apollo’s government jailers look to study and exploit him, but he escapes as a teenager and, for a time, finds the simple joys of living as a human before his discovery and recapture. When dark days threaten humanity’s future, will Apollo play the reluctant hero? Combining the mystery of The X-Files, the action of Independence Day, and the humanity found in the Superman mythos all rolled into a riveting tale of loss, destiny, and the price of power. Is our protagonist a man, monster, or hero? Perhaps he’s all three?
