In the series premiere, Henry discovers that being a superhero's sidekick is much harder than he ever thought.

When Henry's life begins to crumble under the pressure, he turns to Captain Man for help. Captain Man offers Henry the use of an amazing new device that solves Henry's problems... at first. But it comes with a high cost, as Henry discovers at school the next day.
