Geeky and unpopular teenager Liam McKenna is a gigantic comic book enthusiast who greatly idolised the Power Crew ever since they first appeared and naturally was devastated when he heard news about what happened to them (the events that transpired in Lone Wolves: Final Ground, The Sentinel: Incarcerator and Time Jumper: The Last Jump). But by his sixteenth birthday, Liam discovers now suddenly has superpowers! It turns that Liam is in the possession of powers that belonged to a team of six superheroes that existed from the late ‘30s to the early ’40s that had died and been forgotten ever since, and that the souls of the six superheroes have possessed the bodies of comatose patients to find Liam. Liam is naturally freaked out by this yet is also very giddy by the fact that he can now be a superhero. The six superhero try to teach him how to use the powers responsibly and how to become an “ideal” superhero, yet they all undergo a frustrating process in doing so. Eventually, Liam's opportunity comes when an old enemy of the six superheroes who was the one responsible for their deaths somehow re-emerges bigger and badder to eradicate what's left of the six superheroes.
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence and language including sexual references.
(Essentially, yeah, this is a more comedic entry in Power Crew Cinematic Universe. This movie takes place a short while after The Emerald Eye, so events from that movie will mentioned in this movie from time to time and the character of Bret Moses Carter will have a cameo appearance in this movie's post-credit scene.)
