It has been three weeks after an infamous crime spree by Kevin Wendell Crumb, whom the press had nicknamed “The Horde”.[N 1] Superhuman vigilante David Dunn and his now-grown son Joseph have been working together to take down criminals, with David being christened “The Overseer” on the Internet. The pair set out to save four cheerleaders Kevin has abducted. Kevin’s malignant psychopathic psyche is preparing to feed upon his captives until David encounters him outside in his in-control alter ego, “”. Discerning the cheerleaders’ location using his extrasensory perception, David frees the girls but is attacked by Kevin’s superhuman alter ego, “The Beast”. Their ensuing fight spills onto public streets, where a seemingly specialized branch of the Philadelphia Police Department, led by Dr. Ellie Staple, activates a machine that flashes a set of hypnotic lights, forcing “The Beast” to switch identities. Staple convinces David to surrender, and both men are arrested.
David and Kevin are sent to an institution for the criminally insane. Also being held there is Elijah Price, David’s sworn arch enemy, known as “Mr. Glass”. Staple, the institution’s chief physician, claims to specialize in working with patients who believe they have special powers. She has been given three days to persuade David, Kevin, and Elijah that they are “normal” people who simply believe they are ; otherwise, they will be bound over for trial. To prevent their escaping, Staple places special security measures in the facility – a sprinkler system in David’s room to take advantage of his alleged weakness to water, the same light machine in Kevin’s room that forces the Horde to switch identities whenever hostility is detected, and several security cameras are installed throughout the building to monitor a heavily-sedated Elijah.
Joseph, Mrs. Price, and Casey Cooke (who survived an attack from the Beast) all visit at separate times to aid their associates, but ultimately fail. As part of her final evaluation, Staple brings the three patients to one room and begins to slowly chip away at David and the Horde’s belief in their abilities as being supernatural or superhuman. Staple reveals that Elijah’s MRI results show irregularities in the frontal lobe of his brain, which she believes could explain his obsession with proving the existence of super-powered humans.
