In a world populated by men who can move faster than bullets, leap over tall buildings, and are stronger than locomotives; in a world where super-beings make the daily headlines crushing tanks and stopping alien invasions, it's easy to forget the impact of deceptively simple super-powers such as turning water into wine and walking on water.

Meet the Twelve, super-heroes whose extraordinary abilities are powered directly by their Faith. The Twelve tells the story of heroes on a power scale that commands authority, yet for whom the greatest feat lies in glorifying the name of a carpenter's son who lived 2000 years ago.

"I just hope to tell stories that show that Jesus is cool," the creator explains, "that having Faith is the greatest super-power of all."

"It might sound a little hokey," he continues, "but have faith, pardon the pun... it's going to be a blast."

The Twelve is slated for release in December 2003.
