The Awesomes

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.

2x4: Tim Goes to School recap: Giuseppe summons Elliot to his room to announce the formation of a team of super-villains to destroy the Awesomes: People Really Into Crime and Killing Sprees. Elliot points out that he's an ape, not a person, as Lady Malocchio comes up with snacks. Once Giuseppe ushers his mother out of his room, he injects Elliot with his father's serum. Elliot gains the power to stretch and gives himself a new villain name: Jeff... read more.

2x3: Destination Deading recap: In a satellite station above the earth, Dr. Malocchio wakes up and finds himself strapped to a table. Mr. Awesome steps out of the shadows and greets him. The hero explains that he flew Malocchio away from the explosion at the last minute. When Malocchio wonders why, Mr. Awesome says that it isn't his fault that he's evil, and that taking the serum turned him into a super-villain. The hero has built a laboratory aboard the satellite and plans to keep working until he can find an antidote and restore Malocchio to the way he once was, even if it takes years. The two former friends make small talk and Malocchio offers to make dinner... read more.

2x2: People vs. Perfect Man recap: At Awesome Mountain, the team tries to find their seventh member to meet the government requirements for a superhero team. Perfect Man steps out from behind the curtains and offers to accept reinstatement. The perfect hero admits that operating solo requires a lot of paperwork. Prock objects to Perfect Man just assuming that he can come back and join the team he abandoned, but the rest of the Awesomes have already thrown a party for him... read more.

2x1: Hotwire's Funeral recap: Thirty days after Dr. Malocchio's death, he is officially declared dead and his family and employees gathers to watch his video will and testament. After fast-forwarding through Malocchio's poetry reading, Malocchio leaves something for all of them. Finally he tells his son Giuseppe Jr. that he is the one truly moral person in his family... so he is leaving Giuseppe the last vial of his serum that gave Malocchio super powers and made him evil. Malocchio wants Giuseppe to keep it out of the wrong hands. Once the video ends, Giuseppe puts the vial in his desk drawer... read more.

1x10: The Super-Hero Awards: Part 2 recap: Dr. Malocchio's henchmen are securing the military while the villain relaxes in the Oval Office and negotiates the surrender of all of the countries on Earth. One of his henchmen reluctantly admits that they've had no luck finding the Awesomes, the only heroes left on the planet with superpowers. Muscleman, his new lieutenant, tells him that they will be hiding in the holograph training room, the safest place in Awesome Mountain... read more.
