The Vice President of the United States of America has been assassinated. Kirk Best is the prime suspect and on the run. Now every super powered being is after him.

The preceding is the basic premise of Intrigue, a miniseries from Image Comics. Intrigue is written and inked by Howard M. Shum. In the world of Intrigue, “paranormals” with super powers do not become super vigilantes; instead they use their powers to pursue jobs that would best utilize them, such as the military, police, bounty hunters, private detectives, etc... Our protagonist, Kirk Best, uses his pyrokinetic powers in his job in a security firm. Throughout this finite series, Best will try to find out who is setting him up and try to unravel the conspiracy behind it all while avoiding paranormal bounty hunters and justice seekers who are often sent out by the powerful and mysterious Hiroshi Katsura. FBI agent Lauren Sumner is on the case and will stop at nothing to bring Best to justice.

Intrigue is like a Hitchcock movie with super powers. It is like a fusion of "X-Men" and "The Fugitive".
