The story starts out with the Battle of the Supernatural Powers, a tournament to decide who will be the next god. Each candidate is required to choose a junior high school student to act as their fighter. The student is given a unique power and told to eliminate as many enemies as possible. The winning God Candidate will become the new god of heaven and the winning student will receive a talent that can be anything they choose. While this leads many students to thoughts of greed and selfishness, Kosuke Ueki decides to take it upon himself to win this tournament to keep that power away from those that would abuse such a gift.
