Notes/Plot Summary
The Good Guys are based on real people and the first issue takes place in a real place. The characters were all Defiant Comics' "casting call" contest winners. The real life counterparts are as follows: Paul Cohen as Front, Mathew Gyrich as Skrag, Daniel Jacob as Recon, Reginald Jackson as Nobody, Jenni Lee as White Crane, Laura Neale as Flex, Zachariah Sahs as Spellcaster and Jeff Miller as Heater. Heater does not appear in issue #1. Heater makes his first appearance in  issue #2. 

In this story, a crowd gathers at Mile High Comics to have Rob Liefeld sign their comics. While in the crowded comic store, an enchanted box is accidently opened granting everyone around it their deepest desires. The kids collectively known as "The Good Guys" all discover they have powers and abilities they did not have before.  The box is stolen and a frantic chase to reclaim it follows. 

This comic features many amusing tributes or references to other mainstream comics and comic creators. 

Please note: The effect on Rob Liefeld was not revealed.
