Sky High

Synopsis: It all begins when young Will Stronghold, the son of the two famous superheroes: Steve and Josie, A.K.A. the incredibly strong, seemingly invulnerable Commander and and the high-speed flying Jetstream. However, Will does not actually know if he has any powers of his own, and has not told his parents this. He and his best friend, Layla are facing their first day of a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty. But with no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he'll also learn that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero!

In a world full of superheroes,

there are two that stand above the rest:

The Commander and Jetstream.

His super-strength makes him pretty much indestructible.

She has the power of supersonic flight

along with a total mastery of unarmed combat.

By day, they live as Steve and Josie Stronghold,

the top real estate agents in the metropolis of Maxville.

But whenever duty calls, they are the Commander and Jetstream.

Me, I have my own names for them:

Mom and Dad - that's me in the middle.

You look at them and see the defenders of the world.

All I see is my dad wearing tights.

Don't get me wrong.

It can be cool to have superhero parents,

like when Mom picks up awesome

takeout on her way home from work.

On the other hand, living up to the family name

means that I'm supposed

to save the world someday.

Here we go.

I just have one small problem.

Come on.

Come on.

Exactly what we want to hear.

- Well, that was Bert Timmerman

and he is buying the colonial on Pine Terrace.

Above asking.

No contingencies.

Honey, I know that selling

real estate is just our cover,

but I think we're in line to

win that salestrip to Hawaii.

We haven't been to Hawaii since

King Kamehamayhem set off that volcano.

Think of it, Josie: You, me on the beach,

no exploding volcanoes.

Mmm, I can feel the sand in my toes already.

Will is gonna be down any minute.

Hey, it's his first day of school, where is he?



Oh! Ah!

Come on, buddy let's get moving!

- Two hundred!

Oh, hey, Dad. Just trying to

get a few sets in before school.

Low weights, high rep, huh?

Good thinking, don't want to bulk up.

Nah, going more for definition.

Big day, huh?


I just want you to know how proud I am

that you'll be attending my alma mater

and someday following me

into the family business.

Real estate?


Real estate.

On a more serious note, son,

I know that every kid thinks his dad's invincible

and I nearly am, but who knows?

Maybe the next time I punch

a meteor hurtling toward Earth,

I'll be the one who shatters into a million pieces.

I - I guess all I'm trying to say here, Will,

is it's nice to know that whatever happens to me,

you'll still be around to save the world.

- Looking forward to it.

- We all are.

- Oh! Hey!

- Oof!

- Good morning, Mrs. Stronghold.

- Mornin'.

I noticed you had recyclables in the trash.

I took the liberty of moving them for you.

Thank you, Layla, you hungry?

I've got plenty of eggs, bacon.

No, thanks. You know how my mom

can communicate with animals?

Apparently, they don't like being eaten.

- How about some juice?

- Great.

He's on his way.

Oh, hi, Layla.

- Good morning, Commander.

- Commander, huh?

Oh. Thanks, Layla.

I can't believe you and Will are starting high school.

Seems like yesterday you two were

swimming naked in the kiddie pool.

- Mom! Hi, Layla.

- Thank you.

Josie, it's...the other one.

- Go.

I see.

Thank you, Mayor.

There's trouble downtown.

Big trouble. Downtown.

Oh, shoot, and I really wanted

to see Will off to the bus.

I remember his first day of preschool.

He wouldn't let go of my leg.

- Mom!

- Oh.


Oh, Will, uh, a reminder.

A lot of the kids at Sky High

will only have one superhero parent, not two,

so take it easy on them, huh?

No showing off.

Aw, Dad. Not to worry, I'll keep it low-key.

Mrs. Rivera? - Josie Stronghold.

I'm gonna need to reschedule that open house.


- Steve!

- Gotta go!

...reports of a situation downtown.

Let's check with a picture from News Chopper 5.

Evil has struck our morning commute.

Here's a hint.
