Based on the Golden-Age comic series, The Green Turtle, this is a story about Hank Chu, the son of Chinese immigrants. His mother who is rescued by a White superhero is convinced he too is a superhero. While Hank initially feels ridiculous in the costume his mother made for him, and even sillier thinking he's a superhero, things change and Hank assumes his destiny.
