It all started with a fire. One day, Adrian Chase was trapped inside a biotechnology lab in New York City.
Unfortunately, it caught on fire. He made it out, but not without ingesting hazardous chemicals and solutions that were in the lab. With all the thermal energy, these chemicals made his body undergo a physical and chemical change. The chemicals gave him the power of combustion. He now had the ability to turn into pure flame. That's how Inferno was born.
Ever since the fire, Inferno has been protecting New York City with his superpowers.
But soon, an evil crime lord, named Vex, started to terrorize NYC. It was not looking good for Inferno. Vex had trusted people in the mayoral offices and the NYPD. He also had people in the city's justice system. He basically ran the whole city.
But, Inferno had a friend who could hack into Vex's network. He now had access to all the names on Vex's payroll.
Inferno now has to arrest all the evil city officials in order to save his city. Can he do it?
