A adventure movie that is fun for the whole family.
Hank Klearing is an ordinary, 40 year old nerd who cannot get a girlfriend or a friend, except fro his weird best friend, Goober. Hank owns a comic book store and his only pride is his collection of all the Batman comics, mint condition. When Goober decides to get married, He choose Hank as best man. He is shocked to see that even a weirdo such as Goober,can lead a normal life. At the wedding, he meets an fat old man of about 80 and has that humorous look about him who goes by the name “Records”. Records says that he is from a nation known as Mepolia, and the Mepolians are in dire needs. The evil warlord Evidiablo has taken over Mepolia and is turning it into a pandemonium of evil. Hank laughs and says that “Records” must return to his imagi-Nation and stay there.The next moring, Hank wakes up to find that he is notin his Batmoblie shaped bed, but in a town. He stands up and finds that there are many little men, no bigger than a 7 year old child, walking around. The town looks just like an ordinary city, just much smaller. One of the men come up to Hank and introduces himself as Asquichiskiwp. He tells Hank that this city is called Kroywen. Asquichiskiwp takes Hank to the Mayor. The mayor is friends with “Records” and tells Hank that Records had told him to tell Hank to travel for 7000 kilometres until he reaches a sunset over a hill that is covered by grass. Amused as how easy it will be to find a hill with grass on it, Hank sets off with Asquichiskiwp. He takes back the fact that he thought it would be easy, because there is apparently only one hill in the whole of Kroywen. After about 7 hours of walking, he finds the hill and waits until sunset, which seems to never come. They wait for about 3 hours and then just as he is falling asleep, Hank is woken by a flash. A man is on top of the hill. He is dressed in a long black trenhcoat, black sunglasses and a black fedora. He holds a cane in his hands and a ball in the other. He must be about 100 years old. He slowly walks down the hill. He stops and looks at Hank and smiles an ancient smile. He makes the cane disapear, he puts the ball under his hat and he rolls down the hill very fast. At the end of the hill, he stands up, takes a bow and makes the cane appear. mhe take sthe ball out and introduces himself as Kenwood. Asquichiskiwp says that he only speaks few words and says that he is one of the oldest, but kindest people in the world who devouted himself to fighting evil. Kenwood hands Hank the ball, which is see-through and says these words: “U nuty fnsd jae ivef elementos nu Evidiablo lailpreva.” Hank is confused, but Asquichiskiwp understands and nods his head. Kenwood disapears and Hank asks Asquichiskiwp what he had said. Asquichiskiwp does not know how to translate, but he knows someone who can. Suddenly, Asquichiskiwp says “Moesypearo” and a tall, thin elderly man in a grey suit with a pencl moustache and a pair of round glasses appears. He takes out a long trumpet from his briefcase and Asquichiskiwp recites Kenwood's message into it. The translator's eyes widen and he starts talking in English“ ”You Must Find the 5 Elements or Evidiablo will prevail“
Hank asks what elemens, and Asquichiskiwp says that in Mepol (where Hank is) the land is ruled by 5 kings who control the elements. What Hank has to do is collect all the elements from each king and destroy them and make the remains into a powder that will destroy Evidiablo. (According to Asquichiskiwp, Evidiablo wants to get all 5 to become master of the whole of Mepol)
They set out for Fire Nation, where The King of Fire (a round, jolly fellow) gives them the fire token with happiness.
The same for Water Nation, where The King of Water, the King of Fire's Brother (though not so jolly. Instead, he is rather thin, cold and reserved) also happily gives thme the Water token. While in Fire Nation, they meet Phoenixia, a princess who was turned into a phoenix by Evidiablo. She accompanies them on their journey, as she has numerous powers. In Water nation, they meet Joel, the Water King's son who also joins them.
They stop off in Gastropia, which is another town in Mepol. While waiting for Joel to finsih in the bathroom, Hank notices 4 men stand together and whisper. They all ahve snow whie ahir and are very pale. They wear long robes and have big guns on their belts. Hank gets the instict to run and he does, with Asquichiskiwp, Joel and Phoenixia following.
They reach Light Nation. The King of Light is a happy fellow with long, blonde hair and twinkling blue eyes, but he is also enjoys jokes and riddles, so he tells a riddle and if Hank gets it right, he will give them the token: ”A cowboy rides into town on Friday, he stays 2 days and rides out on Friday. How is this possible?“ Hank thinks for a while, but then he remembers the riddle beng in ”Puzzleman Issue #346: The Wild West Part 4/12“ He calmly answers: His horse is named Friday. The King of Light says that is correct and gives him the light token.
When they reach Earth Nation, they find it is a big desert with house built by digging into sand dunes. They walk and find a sand dune with turretts and towers and 3 men in armour gaurding it. They enter and find the King of Earth. A short, fat, sad man, he says that he would be more than happy to give the token, but he dropped it somewhere in the desert years ago. If they want i, they must find it, They spend 3 days digging until they find it. But a man approaches them and steals it right out of their hand. Hank chases him and as punsihment, the thief has to accompany them. He does and Hank finds out that the thief (real name Tiki) is actually quite clever. He tells Hank that those 4 men are Jumo, Kumo, Lumo and Mumo. They are agents for Evidiablo.
Finally they reach The Darkness Nation and Hank asks Asquichiskiwp where the king is. Asquichiskiwp goes red and says he forget to tell him that Evidiablo is king of darkness.
Hank angry walks away, but the 4 ”agents“ are in his way. Jumo is tall and is around 50 with pale skin and a long nose. Kumo is chubby and is around 40. Lumo is around 30 and is stooped over with long hair and Mumo, obviously the leader, is around 60 with grey-white hair. They grab Hank and hold him tightly. An old man with slicked back white hair, stong hands and a quiet look on his face approaches them and stops about 3 metre away from them. He notices Hank and moves forward until his face in right in front of Hank's. He smiles and tells the agents to let go of him. He has got a very soft English accent and looks kind. Hank thanks him. He introduces himself as Mark Lucas. Asquichiskiwp and the rest of the team come running and Joel shouts ”Get Away Hank!“.Asquichiskiwp comes forward and says that that is Evidiablo. Hank looks up and asks if this is true. Mark looks at him and smiles. He lifts his hand and black fire shoots out, knocking Asquichiskiwp down. Hank picks Asquichiskiwp up and finds he is dead. He puts him down and him, Joel and Phoenixia all run and try and attack Mark/Evidiablo. They stand no chance, as Evidiablo is too strong for them by himself, not including the Agents. Then there is a burst of fire and the Fire King rides in on a chariot with 100 warriors with him, and the same for the Water, Light and Earth Kings. Soon there is a army of 405 warriors. But they are still not enough, as Evidiablo summons 600 darkness warriors. Worried, the ”good guys" are ready to give up, but then there is a flash and there are 1000 Kroywenians with weapons, ready to fight.
One all the warriors of the dark side are dead, it is only Evidiablo left. He is reduced to noting but the old man form he was. Hank uses a sword to slice him and he dies. Now that Evidiablo is dead, Phoenxia turns back into a human and Joel falls in love with her.
Hank falls asleep and when he wakes up, he finds himself in his batmobile bed. He smiles and gets up. We are lead to think it was a dream until he walks out and we see a Kroywenian clinging onto his back.
The epilouge shows Records and Kenwood on the hill. They wish for a national hero, and just then Hank, Joel, Phoenixia and (For some reason alive) Asquichiskiwp ride in on griffins, in full armour and they salute the 2 old men and ride away into the sunset
