Otto Sparks and Reggie Spencer are two online activists with dreams of changing the world. When Otto decides to take a leap out from behind the computer and into the business of vigilante justice, he and Reggie are cast on an adventure that sets them on a collision course with colorful characters and powerful figures they only thought existed in comic books. But how will they know who the bad guys are? And do the good guys ever really win?

The second Hollywood Fringe project from writer/actor John Patrick Daly, following 2018’s Encore winner New Kid on the Block, How I Became A Superhero is a tale of humor, heart, and what it really takes to be someone amazing.

“A fun and zany show that takes elements of the superhero genre and pokes fun at all it’s usual tropes while delivering a satisfying and enjoyable unique story.”
Matthew Robinson

“What a smart, bold and funny show!”
