The Amazing Sidekicks #1

Sky High deserves to be remembered. In an age where superhero movies pop up every 2 seconds, one movie chooses to stand out above the rest. Sky High takes a familiar premise and does something unique with it. The focus is on the behind the scenes everyday life aspect of being a superhero, specifically in high school. Mostly focusing on what it means to be ย a sidekick. A boy named Will Stronghold is the son of two prominent superheroes. His Super strong father The Commander and flying mother Jetstream. He attends a superhero school in the sky called Sky High as a freshman. It draws attention, because he doesn’t have any powers. So he’s placed in sidekick class along with other kids who have lame powers. Including glowing, melting, and shapeshifting into a guinea pig. Which results in a fun superhero movie with a lot of heart and humor. As well as some amazing casting choices that elevate it in a way that makes it truly special. They managed to get the likes of Kurt Russell, Linda Carter, and even Bruce Campbell to play a part. So if you haven’t checked it out, I would super strongly recommend it.
