G-man does his best to be fair and share, but by sharing his magic cape's scraps the kids start to run amok. Him, his brother Great Man, and his superhero friends, set out to retrieve the pieces, but end up missing a few. As things progress from bad to worse, robbers, and supervillains gain these pieces that bestow powers. It goes to show that for normal people power corrupts, and that a tool is not itself good nor evil, but can be used for either depending on the person. In a funny turn, G-man discovers it is his brother, who had all along been against G-man sharing their powers, that is selling the wrist bands. He and his friends manage to take them back, but as proves to be the formula, just as they, and we the readers, think things will get better, they somehow manage to get worse. Communication skills are quite lacking in these characters, but that's what makes them fun to watch; they are not able to convince others. Eventually some lessons are learned, and they manage to restore their powers by going on a quest to find the cape's creator.
This comic is part superhero tale, part magical quest, and filled with a serious and witty type of humour.
