Synopsis for "The Hero Within"
Miguel recalls a time when he was younger, he fell into a swimming pool and thought he was going to die. Superman saved him but he was left with a burning desire for that same rush. Now, as Miguel is older, he works with his uncle who owns "Mayo Madness", a fast-food truck. One night while working in the truck, he meets a girl called Summer who has a reputation for running away from their town and he gifts her his sandwich.
Before long his Uncle calls him back to finish off tidying the truck, but later that night he travels to the canyon where he plans to ride his bike across a large gap. As he crosses the gap he begins to fall but he is saved by a mysterious dial-phone which tells him to "Call H". In doing so, Miguel activates a number of heroes and villains across the universe who now are all aware of the H-Dial's re-emergence.
Miguel is transformed into Monster Truck who was given his powers by a trinity of trucks, Monster Truck is the elected eternal champion of Trucking.
Miguel wakes up surrounded by crushed cars and blaring sirens and soon his uncle's truck turns up but it has been stolen by Summer who invites him in and the two drive away from the town. On his lap the phone rings and on the other end is the Operator who warns him about the Thunderbolt Club.
