Imaginative second grader Eugene McGillicudy loves comic books and superheroes so much that he invents his very own superhero alter ego named…CAPTAIN AWESOME! MI-TEE! Along with best friend Charlie Thomas Jones (aka Nacho Cheese Man) and sidekick Turbo the hamster, Captain Awesome and his superpowered squad protect the town of Sunnyview--as well as the universe--from a comical crowd of “bad guys” like Queen Stinkypants, Dr. Spinach, Mr. Drools and Baron and Baroness von Booger.
