Hop it, Superman: here’s Super Gran! Old but definitely not past it. One day, a little old lady was struck by rays from a super machine. Now she’s Super Gran: super-fast and super-strong, with cool X-ray eyesight. Don’t mess with her! Like every self-respecting superhero, Super Gran is on a mission to stop the baddies in her town. Plus, she’s got her own dream team of loyal sidekicks: her grandson Willie and kid genius Edison. (Youth, brains and muscle? They’re unstoppable!) Together they perform super stunts, foil bank robberies and save a child from drowning. But when the evil Inventor gets his hands on the super machine, can Super Gran’s wrinkly power make him sorry?
