Likable but shy kid Spencer dreams of being like his comic book hero, "Midnight Warrior," but his life is strictly grounded in reality. At least, that is, until the day an extraterrestrial craft crashes nearby, and the cybernetic organism inside invites young Spencer to try on his space suit, which gives the wearer superhuman powers.
