Rock M. Sakura Saves the Day in “Sexy Superhero Sickening Spectacular”

The "Drag Race" alum discovers her superpowers in a new digital series for WOW Presents Plus.

Look in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… a drag queen?

Drag queens are our modern-day superheroes. Ever seen Superman do a death drop? Didn’t think so. But now, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 queen Rock M. Sakura is literally donning a cape and suit in the new digital series Rock M. Sakura Sexy Superhero Sickening Spectacular.

In the new mockumentary series, Rock comes from a family of superheroes, but she is a late bloomer and has yet to come into her powers. Naturally, the campy queen sets out to uncover her superpowers in her hometown of San Francisco.


“Feel the magic! In what is truly a collection of skin, bones, words, oddly proportioned drag, breathing, and — to put it politely — questionable writing, you and your family can watch me at the unquestionable peak of my career,” Rock tells NewNowNext. “With never-before-seen bonus features (that simply don’t exist), this new series is sure to warm your heart. I prove myself as a timeless classic. Featuring songs (from no one), and the impressive voice talents (of nobody), make sure Rock M. Sakura Sexy Superhero Spectacular is part of your kids’ collection — or else she’s going back in the vault for good this time!”

In an exclusive new trailer for the series, Rock struggles to unleash her inner superhero as she tries to save the citizens of San Francisco. “I’m just trying to figure out what my superpower is,” she says in the preview. “I’m determined to save the day, I’m determined to make this world a better place… come along with me as I explore my new powers” — which, judging from the trailer, include a fart laser?

Watch the trailer below, and check out Rock M. Sakura Sexy Superhero Spectacular when it debuts March 3 on WOW Presents Plus.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
