Universes are colliding. Characters from a tangle of universes—Star Trek, Marvel Comics, Star Wars, Harry Potter, DC Comics, Middle Earth and more—are colliding in a reality that has gone mad. The evil, orange-skinned usurper, Uranus Blowhard, has hypnotized Amerricans with his mind-numbing MAGA chant. Blowhard is determined to collect the Time Cheaters that will make him the most powerful roach motel tycoon in the Infiniverse. The only thing standing in Blowhard’s way is Captain Quark and his crack team of superheroes, The Funtastic Five. Captain Quark is an ideal story for the silver screen because it draws inspiration and MANY cameo characters from the very biggest Hollywood blockbusters. The story is a retelling of Donald Trump's rise and fall which casts Trump (aka, Uranus Blowhard) in the character of a bungling Thanos knock-off. There are many epic battle scenes throughout Captain Quark that would rock the world of movie-goers. Besides all of the fun, Captain Quark is tender love story with a poignant, romantic ending that will tug at audience heart strings.
Professor Muddle must assemble a team of superheroes to fight Uranus Blowhard. He has come to take over the planet.
Authors Writing Style: FAIR
Franchise Potential: GOOD
Accuracy of Book Profile
Yes, the book profile accurately reflects the book.
Draw of Story
The story is pure satire drawing on every fandom you can imagine. It also touches on America's current political issues. It begins very promising.
The book pulls on every pop culture fandom there is including Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel and Disney, among others. The characters names are barely changed and not done in an artistic way. It reads like one was transported into the mind of a 13 year old boy. Most of the story can be categorized as chaotic. This can be avoided by picking a few fandoms to use in conjunction with the political figures.
Use of Special Effects
THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS
Primary Hook of Story
The hook is that a subpar version of Thanos mixed with Trump, beams down to Earth to start trouble. I would watch this film for the satire. The story combines some of my favorite movies and makes fun of the political situation.
This could have a large fanbase if edited. There are too many characters and events happening. Satire can be a great tool especially with the events of this year and the election. This has good intentions but it is trying extremely hard to be funny and relevant, it has regurgitated pop culture back to the audience.
This does not have awards potential. Every character is a caricature of another well known character. The story is chaotic and erratic.

What’s New About the Story
The story is unique because it is using satire to expose the ridiculousness of America's recent political drama. It is using all of the pop culture fandoms to make it more appealing to audiences.
The lead characters do no stand out. There are so many characters that none stand out in any meaningful way.
Uniqueness of Story
This story could be a gem if developed and edited. There are too many characters and so many conflicting universes. Less is more in this case.

WORK IN PROGRESS
While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.
Tips for Improvement
The story would become a consider if it were streamlined and simplified. Reading a story such as this gives the reader a chance to consume the insane amount of characters and tie them to their universes. On screen, it would not translate as well and make it hard to understand. The satire of President Trump would be great ,considering this year's events but it should possibly be one or the other.
