Minivip and Supervip are two super brothers who are very different from one another. One is as feeble and intelligent as the other is strong and naive. Because of their differences, Minivip, the weakest superhero in the universe, has ended up with an inferiority complex and is now undergoing analysis from Doc, the most incompetent, most dishonest shrink in the world. In these comical sessions, Minivip tells him about his dreams, adventures and nightmares, which reveal the fears and anxieties that hound him day after day, outlining bizarre, humorous situations that it would otherwise be impossible to imagine.
