Premise: The Plutonian used to be Earth’s greatest hero…until something turned him into Earth’s greatest threat. It’s up to his former teammates to stop him before he kills everyone, but they’re quick to realize they may not have what it takes. Meanwhile, The Plutonian’s actions prompt supervillain Max Damage to become a good guy.
Why it would make a good movie: It turns the idea of Superman—and superheroes in general—on its head, while tossing in a bit of in-fighting and sexual backstabbing for good measure.
Possible cast: Nathan Fillion as The Plutonian [pictured]; Gerard Butler as Max Damage
