Ever wished the kids in Skins were a bit more super, or the heroes in Heroes had more attitude?... It's ankle tags not capes in this down-and-dirty teen winner - Guardian Guide. Being s Superhero has never been such a pain. A gang of five teenage outsiders - party girl Alisha, hard-as-nails Kelly, one-time sporting hero Curtis, painfully shy nerd Simon and smart-alec Nathan - get caught in a freak storm while on community service and suddenly find themselves with stranger superpowers. All find themselves with a power they didn't choose or want - a power which reveals their deepest darkest insecurities... Used to being demonised by society because of their crimes, the five reluctant superheroes struggle to control their new powers while coping with all the usual enxieties of teenage life: relationships, friendships, parents, sex - as well as saving their town from the evil that is descending upon it. Unlike their conventional counterparts, they don't swap their mobile phones for capes and tights. Instead they discover how tough life can be when you're all that stands between good and evil. Well that and your curfew... Bold, subversive, sexy, funny and utterly unique, and with a cast of fresh and upcoming talent, Misfits is a knowing take on how hard it is to be a hero in the modern, cynical world.
