The Specials Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A satire of comic-book superheroes in the same vein as the 1999 Mystery Men, The Specials is set in a parallel universe where gangs of superheroes regularly compete against one another for glory or, failing that, flattering action-figure likenesses. The Specials are one of these gangs, and not a very good one at that. Composed of the Weevil (Rob Lowe), the group's most popular member, Amok (Jamie Kennedy), a potty-mouthed shape-shifter, group leader Strobe (Thomas Haden Church), and the constantly growing or shrinking Minute Man ([[Performer~P92904~James Gunn~jamesgunn]]), the Specials are more concerned with their image than in actually doing anything heroic. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
