When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes.
When Lex Luthor captures the Justice League, Krypto loses his power and then forms a team of shelter pets who were given superpowers so that they can save Superman and his friends. The Super Pets team includes the indestructible Ace; a pig named PB, who has the ability to enlarge herself to giant-size; and a a turtle named Merton McSnurtle who moves at super-fast speed, and Chip, a squirrel who gains electric powers.
