But not just any super hero, this was Herald M.F. Jones, the super spectacular bad ass protector of Jade City.

The play was a huge success and received rave reviews throughout N.C.’c arts community.

Jones ended up not not only saving the day, but making history as well by becoming the first African American superhero serial in radio history!!!
