Outcast features characters that may be familiar to comic book readers such as Star Wars, Superman, and The Hulk. These comic book heroes battle their evil counterparts called supervillains. The villains have been shown to be incredibly dangerous and most of the time, they have been responsible for the death of countless innocents.
The story line begins when a mysterious stranger attacks an infant boy, Emetophobia. The boy later becomes known as Outcast, who was left an orphan at birth. Outcast soon gains the attention of his foster family, though he refuses to accept it. He would do anything to gain the attention of his foster mother, however, she is determined to send him to the facility for boys so he can earn his freedom.
Outcast spends most of his time in the Griswold household with his father, grandfather, and sister, Antonia. His father, Bob, works in a lighthouse while his grandmother is an administrator in a medical research facility. Antonia works as a nurse and is the mother of Outcast's younger sister, Jody. They are very close and are always seen together.
One day, Outcast helps his grandma in a surgery, but he gets locked inside the hospital. Outcast rescues his grandma and they reunite in the garage after discovering Outcast's strange powers. This puts them into danger yet again as the villain Doctor Psycho Psychopoeia tries to kill them. However, Outcast teleports himself and Jody into the therapist's office, where the psychiatrist attempts to help them. Before the therapist can be able to do so, Outcast teleports himself and Jody into their truck and drives off.
The next day, the police discover Jody's body and bring out the autopsied Outcast. The police learn that Outcast can turn into a monster and attack people. Outcast does not want this to happen and teleports himself and Jody into their house, blocking the door. The three of them fight and Outcast gains the upper hand, however his powers are useless against Doctor Psycho. After Doctor Psycho releases all his mind controlling gas on the town, Outcast transforms into a monster and attacks the townspeople.
After the battle, Outcast notices that everybody has been effected by the gas. Outcast realizes that they need each other to defeat the monster and teleports himself and Jody into the safety of their home. With the help of his parents and grandparents, the three of them defeat Doctor Psycho. They later learn that he was using them as bait to trap them.

Due to the popularity of the Outcast comic, a sequel was made titled Outcast Two. The second movie in the series was released in 2021. In the film, the original Outcast character meets up with another spider, who is revealed to be Electro. Electro has a rather abrasive personality, and is rather violent towards others.
