The story revolves around comic book fan Don Swan and his battle against a fictional film studio which is about to announce a film based on his favorite superhero, Commander Courage.
Most of the movie was filmed at a San Diego Comic-Con. All the interviews with attendees while Hamill remained in-character were unscripted, for a realistic look. The film also was critical of "crowding out" in voice acting where celebrities have been cast instead of experienced voice actors. This film did the opposite by casting voice actors in live-action roles.
