Living with his aunt and mean uncle in a small house on Lime Street, Billy juggles his time between schoolwork and saving lives, earning some money on the side as a freelance photographer for the Selbridge Sun. Of course, not everyone is happy which his exploits, and he often faces outright hostility from the very community he is dedicated to protecting!
