Summary
Les Franken is a kind-hearted and soft-spoken man who loves reading comic books. He's the type of guy who most people walk by on the street without even noticing. He is someone who is completely average and virtually invisible. Everything changes for Les the day he is accepted into an experimental drug study. As he begins to take the drugs, an unexpected side effect occurs -- he develops special powers. In an effort to use his new talents for protecting others, Les finds himself in a predicament to save himself
