A very funny episode. The plot really isn't up to much. It's a parody of the super-hero genre, in the simplest way possible (it's worth noting that the episode was created just before the massive boom in super-hero films so the super-hero mocking here is based on comics and old-timey TV shows more than anything). The story does what it does reasonably well though. My only complaints are that it feels somewhat bland given its potential.

The jokes are quick-fire and hilarious though and the episode also features possibly one of the best Futurama songs ever (well, two technically).

For anybody that cares, it also does a nice job of continuing the saga of Leela and her parents after it was effectively concluded with Leela's Homeworld.

Overall, a solid episode, but nothing special.
