Superpowered humans known as NEXT appeared in the world 45 years ago. Some of them fight crime in the city of Stern Bild while promoting their corporate sponsors on the hit show HERO TV. The people love their superheroes, even if they don't completely understand them, and not all of the NEXT use their powers for good. Because of a kidnapping threat, Kotetsu and Barnaby have their hands full babysitting the mayor's infant son, who is also a telekinetic Next! Unfortunately, Kotetsu's face just makes the child cry, setting off his destructive wailing. Pao-Lin and Karina have the right touch for this job, but sinister forces are lining up against them!
