Synopsis:


Timothy Hunter could be the most powerful magician in the world, but does he really want to be?  Guided through the magical world starting at the beginning of time by a group of DC Universe magicians, often referred to as the Trenchcoat Brigade (John Constantine, Phantom Stranger, Mister E, and Doctor Occult), they attempt to aid Timothy in his decision whether or not to embrace his gift.  However, by the time Timothy makes a choice, it may have already been made for him.
