The insignia turns him into Captain Extraordinary (Captain X), a superhero whith great powers. But being Captain X brings Ben no end of grief. He is chased by the evil Renfield and his goons. Ben hasn't even mastered flying and suddenly he's expected to save the city from all kinds of villainous plots. But with the help of his family and friends who turn into Captain X's sidekicks, Captain X can save the city.

  • Hilarity!!!

    This show is so stupid it's hilarious. You really need to take it tongue in cheeks but once you suspend belief beyond the stratosphere the show is great fun. This show is a complete spoof on the superhero genre and it does it very well. The Kiwi accents just made me laugh harder.



    Captain X's side kick wears a bath towel as a cape and his eccentric grandfather is also a squash buckling hero. The creators didn't go out of their way to make the costumes stylish but that's half the charm. The acting is over done and the special effects are worse and yet I couldn't help laughing out loud throughout.moreless
