Stretch Armstrong has been around for decades, but it’s been a while since anyone has heard from him. It seems he’s coming back to Netflix (an always popular way for half-forgotten characters to make their returns), but he’s now a teenaged superhero with a few superpowered teenaged friends. The name of the series is Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters.
The premise of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters appears to be that Stretch is no longer a bodybuilder who can stretch, but is instead a high school student who can stretch. The new trailer for the series leans heavily on the seaming contradiction of a superhero who’s also a high school student, I guess expecting people to just politely forget about Spider-Man. Which is just as well, since the makers of this show seem to have forgotten Vac-Man!
Anyway, check out the trailer for Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters below, and watch for the series to hit Netflix on November 17th.
