The new rock musical comedy satire, according to the creators, chronicles "the journey of Dave and Gary, two Midwestern mall food court employees who are also partners in love (and eventually justice). Dave’s life-long dreams of becoming a superhero finally come true after a freak accident involving Superman, an overdose of hallucinogenic drugs, a port-a-potty and a Journey concert. From there, Dave and Gary embark on an epic adventure of revenge and love, of discrimination and acceptance, and ultimately the most magnificent superpower ever created."
