Teenage geek Liam McKenna is enjoying life as a superhero and as a member of the team that inspired him, the Power Crew, while the original Super Six continues to help him master his powers. Eventually, Core Prime assigns Liam to investigate the disappearances of hundreds of children, they have reason to believe that famous heartthrob pop star Dusty Laing is a supervillain who has the ability to brainwash kids with his songs (Which prompts Liam to laugh hysterically at how ridiculous that sounds). Liam infiltrates one of Laing's concert to confront him but he suddenly attacked and easily defeated by a weird yet cute bouncy creature. He is left humiliated and is belittled by older brother who says that he's just an irresponsible kid and he doesn't deserve these powers if he isn't going to be more mature about the superhero business. Then, out of nowhere, the two are suddenly kidnapped by a pair of mysterious creatures who take them someplace underground where the boys meet their father, Jack, who was missing presumed dead. Jack tells them he is the last surviving member of an extinct race of supernatural creatures and that one of the boys has inherited his genes. He takes the boys to a Disneyland-esqe amusement park where all the missing children are playing and Jack tells Liam and Derek that he is protecting the children from Laing and that Laing wants to obtain his DNA to gain more power, but with the boys' help, Laing can be stopped. But is Jack being truthful?
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.
(Conclusion: (spoiler alert!)
It turns out that Jack has actually kidnapped the kids with Laing and the bouncy creature's help, he has a personal vendetta against the government as he calls them out for caring about the media more than the people. And the government is responsible for the near-extinction of his species and he plans to create a doomsday machine annihilate the every adult in the world while the children will be protected and he'll teach them to rebuild a new and better society. Liam and the agents of Core Prime (Who had been searching for the boys along with the Super Six and Amy Lyndon, who had found out about Liam's powers and decided she wanted to help) try to stop Jack but his creatures are outnumbering them, but at least they manage to snap the kids out of the trance by loudly playing Shoot to thrill by AC/DC. Derek decides to use the inherited powers to fight against Jack and tells Liam and others to get kids to the surface. Liam insists that he can take him and refuses to leave his brother behind but Derek knocks him out and says “I'm sorry but I love you, little brother”. Derek fights off against Jack and he ends up sacrificing himself to kill Jack not before Jack's last words “You care about the government more than me?!” Derek responds “No but I care about my BROTHER!” Both of them are killed. Liam mourns the death of his brother, Amy and Super Six comfort him, Dusty Laing is arrested by Core Prime after he's brainwashed by his own music and the cute bouncy creature is put in Jacob Goodman's care. They hold a funeral for Derek and Liam decides to honour his memory by trying his best to take responsibility in his superhero duties.)

One of them is a former employer of Amy's father who wants to take out Amy since Liam really likes her. This scene will set up The Ghostly Super Six 3 as those criminals will be the biggest challenge for Liam.)
