FLASH FACT! For their last performance – an escape act!
Haley's Circus is travelling through Europe, providing entertainment for various cities and a means of survival on the run from the war. The show's 'sideshow freaks' draw crowds with the inhuman flexibility of Ragdoll, the grotesque appearance and strength of King Shark, and the future-predicting abilities of a helmeted Dr. Fate. However, the large crowds come to see the Circus' acrobats and main attraction, Deadman and the Flying Graysons. Boston Brand, Deadman, is an arrogant, abrasive trapese artist that performs death-defying feats, while the Graysons are a family of three that put on a conventional show. When Dr. Fate shows Boston a glimpse into the future, it becomes clear that Fate is more than just a carnival attraction.
