Ed Migliocetti (Lou Ferrigno, The Incredible Hulk) has served his country. When the endless war began, he put aside his football career to sign up for the military. And when the powers-that-be drafted him into the Enhanced Abilities Initiative, he became known as The Liberator.  Teamed with a group of “supers” – Sidewinder (Don the Dragon), Gaia (Tara Cardinal) and Volt – Liberator represented the best of America.  Or so he thought.  He soon found himself doing the government’s dirty work – assassinations, regime change, infrastructure sabotage.  Through it all, Ed followed orders.  He was a good soldier.

But when a black op went horribly wrong, Ed was thrown under the bus – the fall guy.  In the blink of an eye, the Liberator literally went from hero to zero.  After serving a decade in federal prison, he emerged a pariah. In the eyes of the public, he was a traitor.  That, quite, frankly, he could take.  What he couldn’t take was his own daughter Sonya (Jessica Jade Andres) hating him.

Determined to set the record straight and win her back, Ed pens a tell-all book that draws the ire of his former chief, General Augustus Pollard (Michael Dorn, Star Trek: The Next Generation).  Pollard dispenses CIA spook Marla Criswell (Peta Wilson, La Femme Nikita) to investigate.  When they realize that Ed plans to blow the whistle after all these years, they have no choice but to take him out.  After Ed battles his way out of a US military contractor’s compound, President Whitlock (Ed Asner, Up) declares the Liberator Public Enemy Number One – and sends Ed’s old teammates (Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Tara Cardinal) to bring him down by any means necessary.  But this time, the Liberator is not going down without a fight.

  2. I love big Lou, I remember watching the old Incredible Hulk show when I was a kid.  To me he’ll always be the original hulk.  I hope I can make it to the festival, it will give surely give me some inspiration over at the studio.  Thanks for the post and the reminder, much success to the festival.
