Imagine if, instead of getting bitten by a radioactive spider, [[Franchise/SpiderMan Peter Parker]] acquired the controls for GiantRobo. [[note]]Other than Japanese ''[[Series/SpiderManJapan Spider-Man]]'', of course.[[/note]]

''Heroman'', which debuted in spring 2010, is the result of Creator/StanLee working with [[StudioBONES Bones]] to create a manga and anime that can best be described as ''GiantRobo'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''ComicBook/TheBigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'' [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries IN AMERICA!]]. Generic American Joey lives in [[strike:Los Angeles, California]] [[IstanbulNotConstantinople Center City]], West Coast [[{{Eagleland}} USA]]. It's TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, as humanoid robotics are the rage for those who have the money to buy them. Joey is not one of these people, and works as a part-order cook when not getting pushed around by TheBully. Joey is pretty much accepting the modern ennui of having no power in life; when a number of surprising things happen.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: [[spoiler:Subverted when the heroes try it on [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Kogorr]].]]

to:

* AttackItsWeakPoint: [[spoiler:Subverted when the heroes try it on [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Kogorr]].Kogorr.]]



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Skrugg. After seeing that Heroman can, at most, directly challenge at least their basic soldiers, all attention is turned on it. No ignoring it; chalking Heroman and Joey up to being powerless against their forces, no, they send a nice sizable force to take care of them and not run the risk of problems happening in the future.
** And when they realise that Heroman also a territorial advantage, they fall back to reassess the situation whilst they get to work on making sure their hostages turned super soldiers don't go wild in the field again. They also attempt the indirect method of dropping a ''ship'' on Heroman to crush him.
*** And again when Kogorr is fighting Heroman and Joey; after not being able to match Joey's speed, he makes a show of facing off against Heroman; then suckerpunches Joey.
*** The Skrugg themselves used their own "defeat" to slowly take over things for a much larger second invasion.
*** Kogorr did it again, he [[spoiler: had a fake weak spot (the eye) and used it to lure Heroman to ''murder'' him, and ''succeeded'']].
** Looks like Agent Hughes is getting in on the action, too, setting up a fake HerosFirstRescue in order to contact Heroman. [[spoiler:In the end, though, [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure he's not all that antagonistic]].]]
** In episode 15, Dr. Minami gets in on it: He uses Heroman's lack of long range attacks against him, and when ordered to "end the battle", he does just that by blasting Heroman with the EMP.
** Even villains as minor as a group of muggers get in on this, [[KnowWhenToFoldEm immediately realising that the big guy in the concealing hat and coat with the GlowingEyesOfDoom is not a safe target and backing off before he can do something horrible to them]].
** In general, if you have an antagonist in this series, chances are they're smarter than the average supervillain.



* WhamEpisode: Both episodes 4 and 5 served as ones, 4 presenting Heroman with a challenge he and Joey could do little but stall against, while 5 has the Skrugg leaders deciding to [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy not run risks and remove the only threat to their conquest]] by [[spoiler: brainwashing Will and Nick into becoming assassins that can fight Heroman evenly in a fight.]]
