Wannabe superhero Ed Gruberman follows a would-be-mugger, who follows a beautiful woman (Christine Lakin) in a red dress into a dead-end alley. There she reveals she is a superhero-‘Red’- and deals with the mugger. When the police arrive, Ed is arrested for assaulting the mugger, and in court the judge (Michael Rooker) listens to the mugger’s lawyer Roger Cheatem (Tom Sizemore), defending him as an ‘innocent bystander’ that got wrongfully assaulted. But the judge seems to sympathize with Ed and sends him to a superhero halfway house where he meets The Super Capers. Though in reality Ed has no super powers whatsoever, don’t count him out just yet.

Driving him to the halfway house, the cabdriver (Adam West) claims to be an ex-superhero called Manbat. Once inside he meets Sarge (Tommy Lister), Puffer Boy (Ray Griggs) who blows up like a puffer-fish whenever he senses danger or is afraid, Herman Brainard (Sam Lloyd) who can move objects with his big head, vain and super-duper self-loving Will Powers (Ryan McPartlin), and of course the one super hero that makes Ed wish he really was a superhero- Felicia Freeze (Danielle Harris).

Before the film is through Ed will have to travel in time to solve a case and send a future warning to the others, without, of course, running into his alternate self…
