4. The Bully (Conflict Resolution and Bullying)

Kevin Taylor is a good student and loves science, but despite his brains he doesn't have the brawn to match Bull, the football-playing, academically challenged school bully who keeps picking on him. At night, fantasizing about being a comic book hero, he falls asleep. Nilus the Sandman joins Kevin and in his dream they track down Atlas, who now runs a school for superheroes on Titan. Despite the disused state of his school, Atlas still has some superpower tricks and Kevin is mesmerized. Without reading the small print he signs up to be the first superhero student Atlas has had in years, only to find out he has to battle the most powerful villain in the galaxy - Garganoid. With their superpowers evenly matched, and the destruction escalating, can Kevin find a non-violent way to disarm the supervillain before the galaxy is demolished? The answer gives Kevin a plan to face up to Bull in real life. 05/08DE PI 30 min.
