Empowered tells the origin story of a not so typical superhero. Lance Boyle is different. He's not a billionaire genius, morally faultless alien, or lab experiment gone wrong. He's a forty-two year old - morbidly obese virgin stumbling home from the local bar. Suddenly he's beamed up by aliens and transformed into a super buff superhero. Empowered - Lance not only attracts a couple of local ladies, he also gains the unwelcome and unrelenting attention of the US military who are ordered to take him by any means necessary.
