Metal Master (John Venturini), main nemesis of Surge (Vincent J. Roth),
gay superhero of Big City, is out of jail, and on a mission to walk the
straight and narrow, which includes getting on the good side of his
parents (Linda Blair, Gil Gerard) again, who could never fully forgive his
gay lifestyle (or life of crime), and making up with his childhood friend
Surge - but somehow that's all thrown out of the window when he stumbles
upon supervillain Augur (Eric Roberts), who happens to need a henchman
with Metal Man's magnetic powers as he's to mine him some Celine-Dionium,
the rarest mineral of them all, and he supplies him with all sorts of
devices to deceive Surge, too. But Surge is not one easily deceived, and
with a bunch of new friends (Mariann Gavelo, Sean Rogers, Michael
Diamond), he has soon found out about Metal Master's scheme, and star
female impersonator Frank Marino tells him he has to microwave the
Celine-Dionium to make it worthless - which is of course easier said than
done and almost destroys the Boulder Dam, but Surge has defeated Metal
Master before, so he figures he's up to the task. Augur however is a
supervillain much more powerful ...
Nichelle Nichols and Robert Picardo play the female and male forms of
Surge's mentor. Also, this were the final acting roles of Noel Neill and
Jack Larson, who played Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen on the 1950's Adventures
of Superman TV show.
Now this movie is pretty much a superhero comicbook fan's dream come to
life, not only for its many many guest stars from the scene - most of whom
have at least one punchline - but also as its makers understand superhero
comics rather intimately, much more so than all the overblown big budget
Hollywood adaptations with their mock seriousness, as this movie is
colourful, exaggerates wildly, is intentionally campy, funny in all the
right places, spiked with some rather well-conceived effects, and it has
just the right devil-may-care attitude. And somehow (maybe for all of the
above reasons), the gay theme works very well within the context of the
movie, to ultimately raise the question: Why are not more (mainstream)
Anyways, if you like your superheroes on the funny side, this one's for
