His crush is the breathtaking Jill Johnson ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Paxton Sara Paxton]), but she is dating bully Lance Landers ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryan_Hansen Ryan Hansen]). One day, Rick and his class go on a school field trip at an animal research lab that is run by terminally ill businessman Lou Landers ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_McDonald Christopher McDonald]), who is Lance's uncle. During the trip, Rick accidentally saturates himself in animal-attraction liquid, which causes a group of animals to hump him. This also leads a chemically enhanced radioactive [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonfly dragonfly] to fly onto Rick's neck and bite him.</p> <p style="margin-top:0.5em;margin-bottom:0.5em;line-height:22.4px;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Meanwhile, Lou Landers creates a machine designed to heal body illness. When he tests it on himself, he exhibits strange powers and decides to become a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villain villain] named "Hourglass". During a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_fair science fair], Rick begins to experience strange physical traits which creates a number of mishaps, and later realizes he has developed superpowers from the dragonfly bite. Rick reveals his secret to his uncle and Trey and an argument starts between him and Albert. The next day, while visiting the bank with his aunt, Rick accidentally allows a bank robber to make off with stolen cash. The robber shoots Albert, landing him in the hospital. Rick is later met by [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Xavier Xavier] ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracy_Morgan Tracy Morgan]), who takes Rick to his school for mutants, where he meets [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_(Marvel_Comics) Storm], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_(character) Wolverine], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclops_(comics) Cyclops], the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_Woman Invisible Woman] and Mrs. Xavier, who convince Rick to become a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superhero superhero]. At home, Rick creates a superhero costume and dubs himself "Dragonfly". As Dragonfly, Rick starts watching over the city and fighting crime, quickly becoming a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_media media] sensation, despite being unable to fly. Later, Dragonfly attempts to stop Hourglass from robbing a warehouse full of "ceryllium" as part of his evil plan but fails, leaving himself injured and allowing Hourglass to escape.</p> <p style="margin-top:0.5em;margin-bottom:0.5em;line-height:22.4px;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Later that night, Jill is attacked by thieves, but Dragonfly saves her and they share a kiss. Meanwhile, Landers plans to construct a machine that will kill people and give him enough life energy to make him immortal. Later that night, Landers and Lance have dinner with Rick's family and Jill, but Landers secretly learns of Rick's true identity when he notices the same injuries on Rick as on Dragonfly. Making up an awkward excuse, he and Lance leave. Landers returns minutes later as Hourglass and murders Aunt Lucille. After a comic funeral, Jill meets Rick and offers to begin a relationship with him. However, Rick fears that his enemies will come for Jill if there were together, and therefore rejects Jill, leaving her hurt and furious.</p> <p style="margin-top:0.5em;margin-bottom:0.5em;line-height:22.4px;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Rick decides to end his superhero career once and for all, but knowing that Hourglass would head to an awards ceremony to kill hundreds of people, he gets Albert to take him there. At the ceremony, Jill discovers that Landers is Hourglass. When Hourglass clashes with Dragonfly on a rooftop, he tries to activate his machine, but Dragonfly manages to kill him with a bomb that had been comically stuck onto his genitals after being thrown by Hourglass. Jill is thrown off the side of the building by the explosion, but Dragonfly finally manages to grow wings and save her. Jill learns Rick is Dragonfly and the two finally begin a relationship. After being thanked for saving the city, Rick flies away with Jill, but the two are unexpectedly rammed by a passing helicopter.</p> Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Moviepedia are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://movies.fandom.com/wiki/Superhero_Movie"
