Superpowers abound. Villains rule the world. A transmigrated dork that has absolutely no idea what’s going on.
Strong-armed by the Superhero Enhancement System into the thankless job of endlessly performing good deeds in a world where such actions are often met with violence, Lucas Lynn doesn't have much choice in regards to using his supposed gifts.

Oh, just trick some supervillains into becoming superheroes instead? You make it sound so easy!

Little character theater:
Lucas, attempting to broker a deal for benefits for his freshly forced vocation of heroic servitude: “Hey 427, do I at least get some vacation time?”
System # 427, completely deadpan: [...There's a new minor task available to the southwest. There's also a cute dog you can pet over there.]
Lucas, with newfound enthusiasm: “WHERE'S THE PUPPER!?”
