Wannabe, the powerless team leader who has always dreamed of being a superhero, is having visions of the eccentric Mr. Fiddlesticks, a character from a series of childrens' books. But what does it mean? Is Mr. Fiddlesticks warning Norrin of danger, or bringing it himself? Co-created by Buffy and Italian Job star Seth Green and written by Mister Girth himself, Hugh Sterbakov, Freshmen II is an uproarious combination of superpowers and college… with a talking beaver!
