Les Franken leads an unassuming life that rarely deviates from a strict regiment of working, eating, sleeping, and comic book reading.

His only two friends are a pair of stoners who own a local comic shop, so Les determines to shake things up a bit by volunteering as a test subject for an experimental drug designed to curb depression.

When the drug appears to give Les special powers, the doctor in charge of the clinical controlled test insists that Les is simply experiencing an unanticipated psychological reaction.

But Les is convinced that his powers are genuine, and as he ditches his work uniform in favor of more superhero-appropriate threads.
