Summary: At this point, you've probably been convinced that being a werewolf is the worst thing that could ever happen. Between the painful transformations and the mindless bloodlust, it can only end in tears. Or, you know, can it?

History: Oregon-living high school average joe Scott Howard has only begun to realize that his family has a rather perplexing secret. Every generation or so, a werewolf comes into the family. And this time, he's the wolf, usually transforming due to high stress. But as it turns out, being a superhuman man-wolf has its perks, such as helping his basketball team win for the first time in years, and becoming a sort of celebrity among the populace. However, the fame quickly goes to his head...

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: It's a bit tumultuous, but eventually Scott comes to realize that he just has to be himself to get what he needs. Without any use of his werewolf form, he manages to help his team win again.

Powers/Abilities: Turns into the strong werewolf whenever stress levels are high.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 1-There's really nothing to fear when it comes to this guy. As a werewolf, he just looks like a guy who never thought to get a haircut. And besides, he's just your average high schooler. If only most other werewolves were like him. If only...

Trivia: -This was one of the first film scrips ever written by Jeph Loeb, who would go on to mostly write for comics. And yes, he did indeed write Marvel's "Ultimatum"...for all the good that did...

-Scott's actor, Michael J. Fox, would prefer to forget this role. In his own words at the time, "Steven Spielberg's down the street making great movies and I&aposm playing a werewolf."

Hey! No flashers allowed!

First change is always the hardest.

This is the part where they remember what happened with Reverend Lowe.
I really hope this wasn't the prelude to a night of bloodshed.

That's the last thing we need! A drunken werewolf.

Tell him to sing 'Hungry Like the Wolf' and he might maul you.
