The world of Pariah, is our world. Creators Aron Warner (Cirque 3D, Beasts of Burden), Brett Weldele (The Surrogates), and Philip Gelatt (Labor Days), set Pariah in the year 2025. A handful of extraordinary teenagers have developed rapidly increased intelligence as a side-effect of an experimental
in vitro medicine. Known as "Vitro" the teen geniuses are pushed
to the fringes of society, feared by the public, and eyed with suspicion even by their own friends and families. When an explosion at a government laboratory that employs Vitros to work on advanced weapons and space-technology causes a deadly virus to escape, the Vitros are blamed for the incident. Teenage Vitros around the globe are systematically rounded up, stripped of their rights, and declared terrorists by the world community. With Black Ops hot on their trail, the Vitros must band together and decide: flight or fight? As if being a teenager didn't suck enough.
