SYNOPSIS: With not nearly enough power comes way too much responsibility. Andrew Bean is a sidekick. Well, sort of a sidekick. To be a sidekick you have to have someone to stand beside and...you know...kick with, but Drew's superhero counterpart is tucked away in a bar somewhere trying to forget his glory days. The result: Drew usually ends up being saved by someone else's hero. He knows he shouldn't complain. Not everybody is blessed with super powers (though admittedly his are pretty lame) or gets to be part of a super secret organization of crime fighters (though H.E.R.O. has too many rules) or gets to be best friends with a girl who can bench press a bulldozer (though lately she's been acting strange). It's just that it's hard to finish your history project when you are dangling over a vat of acid. And it's even harder when you're not sure what...or whom...to believe in.
