Plots

Hancock is a superhero whose ill-considered behavior regularly causes damage in the millions. He changes when the person he saves helps him improve his public image. - ahmetkozan

The powerful superhero John Hancock has become a joke because of his alcoholism and clumsiness. He has also become the most hated man in Los Angeles. Though he has saved many lives, he also destroyed a lot of property, costing the city millions every time he goes into action. When he saves the life of PR expert Ray Embrey from an oncoming train, the executive is thankful and believes he can restore Hancock's image as a true superhero. He brings the anti-hero home for dinner and introduces him to his son Aaron, a big fan, and to his wife, Mary. But for some mysterious reason Mary doesn't want Hancock anywhere near her or her family. - Rob Marshall, Chicago, IL

Subpoenaed to appear in court for almost six-hundred civil suits, Los Angeles' ultra-powerful, always inebriated, and utterly antisocial superhero, Hancock, is a well-meaning titan who, sadly, does more harm than good. Wreaking havoc on the city with his devastating acts of heroism, Hancock will find himself in a tight spot, when--after one collateral destruction too many--the indebted publicist, Ray Embrey, makes it his personal cause to clean up his damaged public image. Ray's proposition seems to be a genuine win-win situation for everyone involved; however, can the improbable duo make it happen? - Nick Riganas
