This actually sounds interesting. Oddly-named superhero and his apprentice, plus the apprentice’s no-good film student boyfriend and worthless hippie scum roomate. About time America’s superheroes started using hippies more often as front-line cannon fodder!
The Middleman started life as a Viper Comics series, in which the Middleman fights a “tentacled ass-monster” that threatens to destroy the world. Now it’s coming to ABC Family, starring Natalie Morales as Wendy and Matt Kessler as Middleman.
The Middleman, on the other hand, is 100% hero most of the time, and he’s the latest in a long line of Middlemen which Wendy may join after he’s gone. Together they battle an interesting mix of villains including Mexican Wrestlers and evil brainiac monkeys.
BRAINIAC MONKEYS! Sorry, easily amused here…
