An average New York teenager decides to become a super-hero for real; he finds out it's not as easy or as fun as it seems, and that it's much more dangerous, when he accidentally runs into a vengeful mobster and a former cop looking for revenge. Lively, inventive satire of super-hero comic-books that disappointingly turns out to become exactly what it satirizes but offers some smart, cleverly written entertainment on its way there.
