Plot

Season one

The series follows the adventures of four teenagers fighting to safeguard Capital City from the vengeful wrath of an insane and disgruntled B-Movie director who possesses the ability to bring his cinematic monsters to life. Over the course of the series, various story arcs occur that expand the series cast and city locations. Each week sees the teens customize common household objects into useful weapons to fight against monstrous creations.

Season two

The battle continues as the Monster Warriors work from their new hide-out: a deserted bomb shelter beneath Luke's house. The newly outfitted warriors get caught in the battle between Von Steinhauer and the new Mystery Monster Maker (who is later revealed as Superintendent McClellan's son, George Junior). The new monsters are half animal, half machine.
