More than just a fun send up of the modern superhero, a clever take on the nature of heroism in the information age. With clever and engaging performances throughout and snappy dialog.... full review

Fun to watch! Clever with poking fun at lots of little superhero tropes with the transitions with some great writing from Daly. Jack De Sanz performance was a standout for me. Hilarious as literally any part? I could watch Benny or that passerby ALL DAY! ... full review

Funny but a bit uneven at times. But there were lots of moments that inspired laughter, especially when the Super Hero appeared on his pink tutu for the first time. Be sure to stay for the scenes following the credits.... full review

A hilarious journey of a power couple who fight the bad man, who wants to control all humans. The show started with a bang and it was non-stop fun, not just for the audience but also for the performers, who at one point couldn't stop from laughing themselves. Love shows where nobody takes themselves too seriously and where everyone has a ball together as a team! Go and see this show! You won't regret it! ... full review

The show paid homage to the MCU, complete with cartoon intros to each scene and a post-credits final scene. The show is hilarious in that it does not take itself too seriously. Every cast member turned in amazing performances, making this one of the “must see” shows of HFF19, especially if you are a Marvel fan. ... full review

I’m obsessed with the actress that plays his Assitant and the tv host. She’s golden and hilariously funny! ... full review

A theatrical one act parody of a tropey super hero movie where no one has super powers. It has some really good moments with good character acting and clever bits of dialog. I found it enjoyable and an easy watch and I thought the overall quirky tone the writer established seemed to translate well with the casts performance of it. Reminded me a bit of the movie Kick-ass. Good show, go see it!... full review
