The film offers fun performances and cameo appearances by some of our favorite sci-fi, comic book and TV sitcom shows including: Lou Ferigno (The Incredible Hulk), Nichelle Nichols (LT. Urhua/Star Trek), Noel Neill (Lois Lane/The Adventures of Superman), Bobby Trendy (The Anna Nicole Show), Bob May (Robot/Lost in Space), Butch Patrick (Eddie/The Munsters), Lisa Loring (Wednesday/The Addams Family), Liz Sheridan (Helen/Seinfeld), Bernard Fox (Dr. Bombay/Bewitched), Len Wein (famous comic writer and creator of Wolverine), Marv Wolfman (famous comic writer and creator of Teen Titans), and Forrest Ackerman (world’s leading sci-fi authority) and many more.
SURGE OF POWER:THE STUFF OF HEROS follows Comic book fan (ALAN MILLS) who happens upon a merchant (TOM TANGEN) that reveals Issue #1 of “Surge of Power” introducing the wacky world of Big City where Gavin Lucas (VINCENT J. ROTH) is out and proud about his comic reading penchant and longing to be a superhero. This science-fiction spoof is complete with mad scientist, Professor Ronald Richards (ROBERT HURT), his nemesis and former partner, Hector Harris (JOHN T. VENTURINI) who sabotages Ronald’s secret experiment (how naughty!) and a classic “freak accident” that causes superpowers!
