Utopia's reservist hero, The Maniacal Smile, is having a really bad day. A group of Eco-terrorists attack the "Aqueous" sea lab as Alex's Uncle Rich is donating the remaining formula that gave him super appendage powers as the hero Limbs. To make matters worse a new crime-fighter makes his aquatic debut. Then things get really bad. Our hero gets "The Blues", part one of two.
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!
