After playing mini golf on Mercury, Jimmy and his friends get zapped by the Van Pattern Radiation Belt and get superpowers based on what they were doing; Cindy has super-strength, Sheen has super-speed, Libby has invisibility, Carl has super-burps, and Jimmy simply turns orange. They decide to become superheroes and fight crime, but they ultimately do more bad than good. Later, when Jimmy loses control of his temper due to Cindy's insults and the gang's refusal to cooperate, he turns into an orange Hulk-like monster and begins insulting everyone in his path and destroying Retroville. Now the rest of the gang must figure how to get him (and themselves) back to normal or they will die from the powers’ radiation burning up their matabolisms.
