What's a guy to do when he has a super hero for a father? After all, most dads can't fly (on their own) or battle robots or catch bank robbers. But, if he's the only dad you've ever known that's just normal. Your mom is just your mom and your dad is just your dad. Unfortunately, some of the kids at school tend to think this particular father isn't normal at all but rather weird. Granted, it is unusual to have a father who is sometimes zapped by rays and shrunk to six inches tall or left with an ant head by an arch enemy. When news gets around that dad has the face of an ant the kids at school really begin to tease. However, good triumphs over evil and Atomic Ace captures the Insect King, thus restoring dad's normal face. Now, dad is a hero to everyone. But, to one boy his dad is just his dad, and he likes it that way. 'Atomic Ace' is a fun and imaginative story focusing on familial love and support.
