Crusading hero cop Nick Tyler has a spotless record in the GCPD. Many criminals would be surprised (and some happy, others terrified) to know that he has a dark secret: he is the shadowy, dangerous and uncompromising vigilante known as Nightstick.

Once, Nick Tyler let his need for justice get the better of him. He made a bargain with – something – that he would never let another crime go unpunished. Now, when the Law fails Nick, his anger and indignation rises, takes physical form, and takes over as the inhumanly fast, strong, and terrifying Nightstick.
