"Superhero Syndrome" is a heroic romantic horror that is centered in Freeport, New York, a village on the south shore of Long Island.
Robert Smith, a twenty-seven-year-old man who works behind the customer service counter of a local grocery store, Cheep Prices, is immensely depressed of his life. Although he passionately hates his job, after eight years he still could not find the motivation to get up, search for better opportunity, and leave. He was trapped, and he knew that he only had himself to blame. As a result it was a direct link to his failing love life, or more appropriate, nonexistent.
Robert's life changes when he meets Destiny Williams, a middle-aged beautiful customer who unexpectedly shows interest in him beyond a friendship. Initially everything about her is perfect as he gets the privilege to know her more as a person. Finally a girlfriend in his life after over a year layoff. She was too good to be true until . . . the day they shared the ultimate moment of intimacy with each other. Instantly he became very ill, near to death. It took him a few days to recover, but when he did he realized that it was not just a simple recovery, it was much more. All of a sudden he now possessed a series of mysterious supernatural abilities that lead him to a new friend that becomes his biggest inspiration and also him learning that Destiny is not a ordinary woman.
While experimenting and using his abilities for his own entertainment, Robert quickly learns that his gifts are not only for play when his youngest brother Carter is endangered, followed by a string of unfortunate events that ultimately hits the White House. Not only must he protect his family but he also takes it upon himself to save America from an immoral Eric Webb, aka Jinteen, the former defamed governor of New York State, who uses his empire of followers, "eye for an eye," to overthrow the United States government.
Exploring Destiny's dark past, Robert learns that he's part of an intricate love triangle, and it's up to him to determine the fate. In his journey to prevent "eye for an eye" from spreading across the globe, Robert learns the hard way that "you can't be a superhero to others until you become a superhero to yourself."
