The Awesomes



Seth Meyers, SNL's Mike Shoemaker, and Lorne Michaels' production company, Broadway Video, The Awesomes come together to create this animated half-hour superhero series. Prock (Seth Meyers) is the low-powered superhero son of Mr. Awesome, the world's greatest superhero.

When Mr. Awesome retires and his team disbands, Prock tries to carry on the family legacy and make sure that the greatest superhero team, The Awesomes, remains funded by the government. To do so, he must gather heroes that the original Awesomes rejected: Frantic (crazy), Impresario (mother issues), Sumo (anger-management problems), Gadget Gal (a hero from the 40s given a new life but old attitudes), Muscleman (not very smart), and Hotwire (possibly a traitor). Together they must rise above their issues and become the superheroes that destiny intended... while thwarting the evil schemes of the mind-controlling Dr. Malocchio.

3x10: The Final Showdown recap: Concierge explains that Hotwire broke into Awesome Mountain and obtained some info. She tells the team and Malocchio that Awesome had two sons: Prock and Perfect Man. Prock is furious that Awesome denied him an older brother to grow up with, and Jill tells her son that it isn't about him. Awesome needed to be the greatest superhero so he kept his love child secret. Tim points out that Perfect Man never knew his father, and Prock figures his father was always a villain. Lady Malocchio points out that nobody is just one thing, and they're neither entirely heroes nor villains. She insists that the one thing that is sure is that Prock is the leader, and they look to him for guidance... read more.

3x9: Super(hero) Tuesday recap: Malocchio tells the Awesomes that Mr. Awesome is evil, and then goes to his daughter Hotwire. They hug and he explains that he's not evil anymore, but the team attacks him. Malocchio admits that their reaction is fair given how many times that he's acted in the past. He points out to Hotwire that if he was evil, he'd be using his mind control. Prock stops time and figures that he can impress his father by capturing Malocchio. He unfreezes time, the Awesomes jump Malocchio, and Hotwire secretly blows out the lights. When Hotwire turns them back on, the team discovers that Malocchio has escaped... read more.

3x5: Indiana Johnson and the Nazi Granddaughters recap: A TV reporter interviews Mr. Awesome about his Presidential bid, and the Awesomes are watching.

3x4: Awesomes for Hire recap: Protestors gather at Awesome Mountain to complain about the recent chaos they blame on the team when it was in Paris. The only bright spot is that Mr. Awesome was there to save the people. Several pundits want the veteran superhero back in charge... read more.
