The Superhero

Adam Simcox

Synopsis

Manchester is torn apart as a vigilante known only as The Boxer bludgeons through the city's criminal element, leaving a trail of broken bodies in his wake. An army of drug addicts, under the messianic leadership of The Needler, terrorises the city. The police are powerless to stop them.

The line between good and evil blurs into one as both factions battle for the soul of the city in this cutting-edge mix of live action and animation.
