Ratboy – failed superhero comedy script

failed superhero comedy script


Meet Ratboy – a superhero who absolutely sucks at what he does. Since the age of eight, he began to understand what the rats were saying to him and decided then and there to use his powers for good and save the world. Unfortunately things haven’t quite panned out the way he planned. He’s currently involved in a lawsuit involving a little old lady and her purse, which he removed from her so called assailant, who turned out to be her husband.

His life blows. He’s overweight, in his forties and dresses as a rat. Now he’s in therapy. But will that actually help him? We’ll find out in this failed superhero comedy script.
