"It's time you met one of your most important superpowers..."
The Captain is disappointed when Ollie feels like laughing at his clumsy classmate Adam, and decides that it's time to introduce him to one of the four super superpowers, Empathy. Empathy transports Ollie into Adam's shoes and teaches him how to understand and share Adam's feelings. But with Empathy comes great responsibility, and the chance for Ollie to return to the library to earn his first Captain's stripe. Can Ollie use his superpowers to win the golden stripe and help Adam to overcome the bullies?
