''The Meteor Man'' is a 1993 {{Superhero}} movie, starring Robert Townsend alongside an EnsembleCast ranging from well known black actors and comedies such as [[TheJeffersons Marla Gibbs]], [[StarWars James Earl Jones]], [[{{Benson}} Robert Guiliaume]], [[Film/JingleAllTheWay Sinbad]] and even Creator/BillCosby himself, to up-and-coming black actors such as Don Cheadle and Eddie Griffin. Townsend also wrote and directed it just as he did with his previous film, The Five Heartbeats. Although neither film [[BoxOfficeBomb fared very well]], they both are considered cult classics to African-American viewers like most of his work.

*** Subverted big time with Michael; when a powerless Jefferson was forced to fight Simon there was some intense build up to make you assume the trope would be played straight. It ultimately ended in EpicFail for him.

* FashionShow: Parodied.

to:

* FashionShow: Parodied. Jefferson absorbs a book about kung fu by Creator/BruceLee, but scrambles to find it again when the knowledge wears off. Instead he grabs a book about runway modeling, which the villain also touches. They even engage in a CatFight before the absorption wears off.
