What Happens In The Superhero Movie?
The movie is set on futuristic earth where superhero powers are no more something fictional but are a reality. However, these powers are only available after one takes a pill called “Power”. The story shifts to Newt, a drug dealer and his cousin, Robin, who is also a drug dealer. One day, some customers rob Robin for the “Power” drug. However, she was protected by detective Frank Shaver. He was a regular customer of Robin and also a detective investigating the source of the “Power” drugs.
Later, a mysterious man called Art was hunting for a dealer named Biggie when he came across Newt. The two break into a fight which leads to the eventual demise of Newt. Frank also stops a superhuman robbery from happening. However, he himself had to use the “Power” drug to stop the robber. But using the drug led to his suspension. But later, Frank’s senior informs him that the government is trying to shut down any investigation related to the “Power” drug. Thus, the senior officer informs Frank that Art is the source of the drug and he should go after him.
Meanwhile, Art kidnaps Robin and asks her to lead him to the safe house of the drug cartel. There he took down many of the cartel’s men while he himself got hit by a few shots. However, he discovers that the government is also involved in this “Power” drug and the people living in New Orleans are like lab rats who are using these drugs. Later, he forms a bond with Robin and tells her that he was once in the army. After quitting the armed forces, an organization called Teleios hired him. They experimented on him to develop these superpower drugs. However, Art had a daughter after undergoing the experiment. Thus, his daughter, Tracy, was born with powers, and she doesn’t need the drug.
Art and Robin finally succeed in finding Biggie, who claims the superhero drug is the way for humanity to evolve. However, Frank intervenes to arrest Art, and Biggie takes a pill and uses the opportunity to escape. However, he fails to escape, as Art eventually kills him. Later, Frank arrests Art, but he reveals the whole truth about the “Power” drug to Frank. Thus, Frank joins hands with Art and Robin. However, he let Art get captured, as Frank’s senior was also working for Teleios. Thus, he wanted Art to get to Teleios base, which is on a ship. Meanwhile, Frank and Robin will follow Art from behind.
