Gus is a thirteen-year-old superhero - Earth's one and only, which is pretty cool most of the time.
Gus's greatest nemesis is ordinary life. Crime-fighting cuts into his video game time. Obsessed classmate, Larry 'the Schemer,' won't stop trying to destroy him with ridiculous science projects. And his arch-nemesis, Mrs. Johnston, loves handing out a never-ending supply of detention slips for tardiness (even if the reason he's late is because he was saving someone's life).
No challenge is greater, however, than finding the courage to ask his best friend, Molly, on a date to their first school dance. To make matters worse, Earth's first super-villain strikes. It will take more than mighty superpowers to overcome this brutish menace and save the town from total annihilation.
Gus learns important lessons about life, loss, and his own limitations, which is an awful lot to learn about for a kid who doesn't like school.
