The world is in great peril. Humans live in fear and abject terror, as the world is seized by the evil COVID-19. Yet within each person underneath those baggy t-shirts and those stained sweat-pants beats the heart of a hero. Your mission, save us all by becoming an elite super warrior (or at least a less boring human being) in the space of two months by completing the impossibly possible Superhero training program. Remember our future lies in your hands.
