Product Description:

A mild-mannered substitute teacher in a rough district is struck by a meteor and transformed into a superhero. This spells bad news for the local gang that is terrorizing his friends and family.

Plot Synopsis:

What does it take to turn a weak-kneed high school teacher into an outstanding leader of the people' In "The Meteor Man," a giant chunk of glowing green celestial rock is the driving force behind Jefferson Reed's transformation. After being chased by neighborhood thugs, Reed is struck by a meteor and he suddenly develops superhuman strength and abilties: he can fly, speak dog language and absorb knowledge from any book in 30 seconds. Reed's mom creates a homemade costume, and he practices his newfound skills in secret. His nightly community improvements -- such as growing a vegetable garden and disarming the local gangs -- draw the wrath of the Golden Lords, flaxen-haired bad guys who terrorize Reed's block.
Soon Meteor Man and the powerful leader of the Golden Lords get ready to have an ultimate showdown that is not to be believed.
