== THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE ==
Luther receives "The Hercules Method" in the mail and is dedicated to make a change in his life. His mother is one of his priorities as he skips school to keep her company at home. Luther's father has gotten out of jail and he is worried for his mother's safety.
Following the use of "The Hercules Method", Luther starts to notice strange occurrences, such as seeing his mom drop a load of plates before she actually did, allowing him to save them from breaking. Following this, he heads to his high school with his best friend Pete. It is there Luther and Pete see Luther's crush, Petra. In the spirit of friendship, Pete pushes Luther into Petra, so he can get his friend to finally talk to her. While talking to Petra, Luther is made fun of by his jock school bully, Paul. Seeing what Paul is doing, Petra decides to make fun of him, resulting in her kissing Luther, telling Paul he doesn't know what a real man looks like. In gym class, Paul targets Pete, causing Luther's "talents" to manifest. He breaks Paul's nose with a dodge-ball and later, Luther knocks Paul out as an act of self-defense.
Luther, who is now much bigger and muscular, refuses Pete's idea of exploiting his new found strength and power. Petra also becomes his girlfriend, telling him that she's "been sending off signals" since Luther's first day of school. Since he took a beating from Luther, Paul who had been put in a neckbrace by him decides to work out so he can exact his vengeance until he finds The Librarian with the bloody corpses of his parents. Luther and Pete are shopping in a convenience store when it gets robbed. Using his new talents to stop them, Pete realizes that he has the potential to be a superhero.
