[adrotate banner=”1″]If you’ve never seen Supersonic Man, you are in for a treat. The film is just freaking crazy, and that’s without the RiffTrax guys taking it to town. For those of you who are unaware that Italy produced a large number of superhero films beyond Puma Man, welcome to a bigger world that you will soon wish you never knew about. While there may be one of three Italian super hero films that aren’t terrible, there are plenty that are. There are actually two versions of Supersonic Man, the Spanish dub features a disco soundtrack that will destroy your ears as the film destroys your soul. Seek it out, if you dare! And seek out Supersonic Man on RiffTrax.com, destined to be a classic!
Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…a copyright attorney that represents DC Comics handing out cease & desist letters to the producers of Supersonic Man!
Sadly, Supersonic Man, though he tries his hardest, still does his best to crib from various, more well-known sources. He has the Man of Steel’s strength, Dr. Manhattan’s occasional be-speedoed-ness, and yes, the awkward, moron-like flying of The Pumaman. What original attributes does he bring to the table, you may ask? Well, he uses his amazing supersonic powers to shatter the speed of sound and…turn a gun into a banana.
And he’ll need every banana he can get his hands on because a nefarious bad guy played by Cameron Mitchell (Death of a Salesman, Frankenstein Island, Space Mutiny) has an evil island lair where he intends to start slow, really focus his energies, and take over one very specific three block area in the city of Richmond, Vir—we’re just kidding of course, he intends to take over the entire world. Fortunately, he has an ace up his sleeves: possession of the world’s lamest robot, which despite its slow movements and general clumsiness, can still shoot gigantic flames that appear to measure approximately a few degrees less than the core of the sun itself.
Can Supersonic Man outwit this foe and save humanity? Assume a rigid, very uncomfortable looking flying stance and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill to find out!
