Josh Duhamel as SHELDON SAMPSON AKA THE UTOPIAN
Sheldon Sampson is the world’s greatest hero and the storied leader of The Union of Justice — the organization formed by the world’s six original and most powerful superheroes after they gained their powers in the 1930s. Sheldon insists that superheroes in The Union abide by a system of checks and balances called The Code: Heroes only use their powers in the service of others, they don’t govern, and they never kill. But times have changed in the past 90 years, and he doesn’t understand the world we live in anymore. Or his own family.
Ben Daniels as WALTER SAMPSON AKA BRAINWAV
Walter Sampson is Sheldon’s older brother and a founding member of The Union. Walt is a man of vast intellect and cunning who’s frustrated by his brother’s demand that they serve the human race when he feels he could lead them into something better.
