Danny was born to be bad but has an irresistible urge to do good. When his super villain dad decides to start World War III, he knows he has to do something. Just as long as no one finds out . . . Danny's life wouldn't be worth living back at Demento's Academy if they find out he did something idiotic like saving the world.
