No one can stop him… until Sorceress grants Prince Hector special powers, transforming him from a puny weakling, into a heroic, powerful Muscle-Man. As Skeleton Man and Muscle-Man battle to rule Queerternia, they realize there is a thin line between love and hate. Can two sworn enemies find happiness in the sculpted arms of one another? Is peace possible for Queerternia?"
