The younger brother points at a man and tells his older brother that the guy is acting strangely. People walked closer to the man, asking if he's alright. The man suddenly turns into flames, engulfing the other people that surrounds him.


The effect of the man's abilities.

12 years later, a teenage-boy with his hands cuffed, asks why all of these has happened to him. As he contemplates the situation, another prisoner tells him to hurry up.
