Synopsis for "Part One: Pirates of Manhattan"

Jake Jordan is an unemployed and disgraced former police officer, who left the force after killing a young boy he misidentified as the murderer of his partner. On the suggestion of his fiancee's father Larry, Jake applies for a mysterious job at the Manhattan Guardian tabloid newspaper. After facing several trials disguised as a terrorist attack, including fighting a Golem, Jordan was confronted by the paper's owner, Ed Stargard. Impressed with his conduct, Ed offeres Jake the job: To be the newspaper's very own Superhero/Reporter, The Manhattan Guardian.

Meanwhile, homeless citizens have banded together creating "pirate gangs", most notably the rivals No-Beard and All-Beard's gangs. All-Beard's gang kills Larry and kidnaps Carla, leading Jake to jump on and rescue her.
