Comic book fan happens upon a merchant who reveals Issue No.1 of "Surge of Power", introducing the wacky world of Big City where Gavin Lucas is out and proud about his comic reading penchant and longing to be a superhero. This science-fiction spoof is complete with mad scientist, Professor Ronald Richards, his nemesis and former partner, Hector Harris who sabotages Ronald's secret experiment (how naughty!) and a classic "freak accident" that causes superpowers! Hate crimes and bank robberies and fear, Oh, my! Gavin enlists the reluctant Professor in zany crime fighting exploits, fashioning a "battle suit" and Gavin's "Surge of Power" identity, repeatedly rescuing the same Young Man and investigating a bizarre crime wave that indicates a new super-villain in Big City more powerful than Surge of Power! Even with input from science-fiction veterans Nichelle Nichols, Lou Ferrigno and Noel Neill, can Surge of Power thwart the evil plans of the mysterious Metal Master? Are capes in fashion?...

You must be a Superhero to endure this punishment!
2 May 2006 | by (Louisiana, United States) – See all my reviews

From the Midi file soundtrack of the opening titles, to the recycled cast of (what I must assume are) passer biers with no camera experience this movie was an experience whose mere mention will produce in me a bitter guttural response years from now when I'm lying in my dying bed. I am sorry, I am sorry if you made this movie (for hell awaits you), I am sorry if I offend anyone involved, but most of all, I am sorry I ever rented this thing. I know that the idea of a gay superhero is attractive to many people (but hey, aren't all superheroes gay anyway?), I have no quarrels with folk trying to support gay productions, there ought to be more out there, but anyone (gay or straight) with the strength to sit through this movie from beginning to end is in my mind a true SUPERHERO!
