Comic book fan (ALAN MILLS) happens upon a merchant (TOM TANGEN) who reveals Issue #1 of “Surge of Power” introducing the wacky world of Big City where Gavin Lucas (VINCENT J. ROTH) is out and proud about his comic reading penchant and longing to be a superhero. This science-fiction spoof is complete with mad scientist, Professor Ronald Richards (ROBERT HURT), his nemesis and former partner, Hector Harris (JOHN T. VENTURINI) who sabotages Ronald’s secret experiment (how naughty!) and a classic “freak accident” that causes superpowers!
Hate crimes and bank robberies and fear, Oh, my! Gavin enlists the reluctant Professor in zany crime fighting exploits, fashioning a “battle suit” and Gavin’s “Surge of Power” identity, repeatedly rescuing the same Young Man (JOEY BOURGEOIS) and investigating a bizarre crime wave that indicates a new super-villain in Big City more powerful than Surge of Power!
Even with input from science-fiction veterans NICHELLE NICHOLS, LOU FERRIGNO and NOEL NEILL, can Surge of Power thwart the evil plans of the mysterious Metal Master? Are capes in fashion? Why can’t Gavin throw a ball? Are some of these dudes . . . ambiguous? Find out all this and more! Comic fans can expect action-packed scenes that'll take them to the edge of their seats. Watch in amazement as Gavin explores what it means to be a hero, seeks a higher power, and decides whether to wear a cape—in this exciting first installment of the "Surge of Power" saga, "The Stuff of Heroes!"
