The first of five books, titled Small Beginnings.<br />Tyler is a young boy (we assume somewhere between the ages of 9-12), whos grandfather has just recently passed away. Having inherited the home and its belongings; Tylers parents resolve to move the family to their new home. Everyone in the family inherits a special object. When Tyler goes up to his new room, he finds his grandfather has left him a seemingly broken gold pocketwatch, and a small stuffed polar bear. Tyler is unimpressed. Instead of getting a cool toy, he got a stuffed animal. After lamenting his seeming misfortune, Tyler goes to bed that evening highly disappointed and unimpressed. Little did he know that the watch was not a watch at all! Rather, it acted as a remote device that triggered Herobear to come alive! Donning a massive red cape, Herobear whisks Tyler away to partake in their very first crimefighting adventure!
