"They call me Maximum Boy. It's a stupid name, I know, but they started calling me that in the newspapers. And now it's on my costume, so I'm stuck with it..."
Max Silver was just an ordinary kid. Until one fateful day when he was visiting the Air and Space Museum. That's when he accidentally touched some radioactive space rocks. Now Max can do things that most ordinary boys can't do. Like fly. And run faster than trains. And lift eighteen wheel tractor trailers. At first Max tried to hide his superpowers, But people needed his help. What good is it to have superpowers if you can't use them, right? Still, don't talk to Max's sister Tiffany about her superhero brother. She's sick of all the attention Max gets. He's always getting excused from school to help out the President of the United States. Like now the President wants Max to help save Manhattan from an evil villain. BIG DEAL. Meanwhile, Max's mom only wants her son to complete his dangerous missions before bedtime (9:30 sharp!). And Max's dad has just one dream on his mind - to beat his superstrong son at a little game of arm wrestling
