The hero tryouts are underway and The Maniacal Smile has to compete with other hero hopefuls. Meanwhile, Uncle Rich hatches a plan to help Alex answer the question of who the mysterious powerhouse is that keeps threatening the city. Can Smiley win the competition and become the city’s defender? Or will he be crushed under the might of the CHAMPANZEE?
Born with super irritable bowel syndrome, Alex McClendon uses his powers to protect the city of Utopia. And when he dons The Maniacal Smile suit, you can be sure that there'll be a splatter of action. Keeping Alex from just farting around with his powers are his ex-hero Uncle Rich and his lab assistant the enigmatic E.V.I.L. Robot. But not everyone knows that Alex is the Maniacal Smile. His best friends Puffy, who owns a comic book shop, and Nikki can never seem to spend any time with the ever-disappearing Alex. Teenage angst, girl problems, and city destroying threats are all a day in the life of THE MANIACAL SMILE!
