French students at the animation company ESMA School of the Arts made a very Pixar-esque short film lampooning the comic book genre. It's about a small-town loser who gains time-stopping superpowers, and becomes the superhero Electroshock to impress a local girl. Unfortunately, things don't go like they do in the comics.

Students? They did an amazing job!

Is he worse than The Greatest American Hero? Though I don't really remember that show except for the theme song.

I loved that show, Pat! Good question, too. Well, the Greatest American Hero did have problems, but he still managed to get the bad guys. So GAH has Electroshock one-upped there.

They did, Alex. I thought it was made by some pro animation company
