More than thirty years ago, two classics were born. One is a captivating novel of the Mafia underworld, The Godfather, which introduced readers to the first family of American crime fiction, the Corleones. The other introduces the world to the most recognized and revered character of all time, the “Man of Steel,” Superman. Paulie Potatoes: Gangster Crusader is a modern blend of both of these unforgettable classics.
On March 10th 2012, 14-year old Paulie Potatoes, along with the rest of the teenagers of earth inherited superpowers. Seeing this as a threat to his way of life, Mob boss Bobby Biaggio Bigotta, better known as Biggie Boom Boom, knows that he must stop Paulie and his friends by all means necessary.
Unexpectedly, Biggie resists his instincts to fight and instead he extends an invitation for Paulie to join his gang. Paulie must now decide between a life of crime or a life as a superhero. Will Paulie walk down this underworld path, blinded by wealth or will he use his newfound powers to keep the streets safe from the gangland that plagues Niagaratown?
