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) superheroes gay?

Anyways, if you like your superheroes on the funny side, this one's for you!
