Captain Stupendous is...a girl?
When Vincent Wu discovers his fave superhero’s secret identity—Vincent’s crush, Polly—it’s up to him and his fellow Stupendous fanboys to school the reluctant hero(ine) before the evil Professor Mayhem returns for another attack on Copperplate City. See, Polly came by her superpowers accidentally and hasn’t a clue how to use them; Vincent aims to save the day (and maybe even get a date).
