The Mystery Men are seven lame superhero wannabes -- Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller), The Shoveller (William H. Macy),
The Blue Raja (Hank Azaria), The Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell), The Spleen (Paul Reubens), The
Bowler (Janeane Garofalo) and The Sphinx (Wes Studi) -- who are called upon to use their dubious
"powers" to save a bustling metropolis when Champion City's beloved real superhero-protector, Captain Amazing (Greg
Kinnear), is kidnapped. The wannabe heroes square off against the vile villain, Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey
Rush), as they try to stop Casanova's dastardly plot to take over the city.
