(Stålhenrik) "Såja, Supersnällasilversara! Snäll och fin, snäll och fin!" ("All right, Super-nice-silver-Sara! Be kind and nice, be kind and nice!") (Supersnällasilversara) "Jag orkar inte vara snäll och fin hela ti'n!" ("I can't be kind and nice every time!")
The superheroes Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik are now pensioners and live on the planet Julstjärnan (the Christmas Star), where it is Christmas every day. One day their daughter Stuntstina comes to Julstjärnan and asks them to take care of her daughters Vega and Nova because she herself must help the Universe. Stålhenrik and Supersnällasilversara start to read about their adventures as young in Hjältedådsboken (the Book of Heroism):
Stålhenrik's parents left him alone on the Moon when he was big as an adult and his mission is to fly to the Earth and help children in case of emergency but he can't fly! Then he sits and reads his book and doesn't care his emergency alarm. Suddenly Supersurasunksara, who is flying, lands on him and wants to smash on something, and Stålhenrik allows her to smash on his steel body, and after that Supersurasunksara becomes transformed to Supersnällasilversara and since this day they love each other.
And Stålhenrik also tells about how the adventure started:
An organization, called Barnverket, who worked for making everything good for children, changed chief and the new chief was Superskurken Gjerta (Gjerta, the super-villain) who had dressed up herself as a woman called Gudrun.
Gjerta, who has occupied Barnverket, forces away the workers and gets a new worker gang who are villains, and her sister son Flemming Flink. Gjerta gives the 1st mission to the villain Ture Tvestjärt, who wants to steel the children's pets because he think the pets are ugly and hates them.
Ture Tvestjärt starts to steel the children's pets. When the children discover it, they shout for help and Stålhenrik's emergency alarm on the Moon sounds, but Stålhenrik thinks that the alarm is not existing because the children are there on the Earth and Stålhenrik and Supersnällasilversara are here on the Moon, but Supersnällasilversara says that they can help the children, because she can fly and Stålhenrik can hang on her back. When they come to the children on the Earth, they find seeds along a way and think the seeds are a hint and follow that way.
When Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik follow the seeds, they come to a tunnel where the pets are hidden, but they don't know that Ture Tvestjärt is the thief and when they go into the tunnel and the pets, Ture traps them in a big net.
Ture Tvestjärt calls Supersnällasilversara "stupid" so she becomes transformed to Supersurasunksara, who throws away the net and forces Ture to bring the pets back to the children. He learns how to love animals and gets a punishment; he must take care of the pets when the children are in school and their parents are busy with working.
The villain Anna Flabet hates reading, words and letters because she herself can't read and Gjerta gives her a machine which is able to use to reverse the letters of a word. The children shout for help and the superheroes come.
Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik find Anna Flabet at the library where she is on the roof and is going to reverse the letters of every word in the whole world with a dish. When Stålhenrik finds her, she says that the machine belongs to her and after that she reverses Stålhenrik so he talks with reversed letters.
Supersnällasilversara doesn't understand what Stålhenrik says. When she finds Anna Flabet, Stålhenrik tries to tell her that she is the thief but Supersnällasilversara doesn't care him and helps Anna Flabet to reverse all words of the world with the machine. After that Anna calls Supersnällasilversara "stupid" so Supersurasunksara comes, and she forces Anna to repeat the words but Anna doesn't know how to do. Stålhenrik knows and tries to say it but can't speak properly. Then Supersurasunksara becomes angry and shakes him, so he becomes well again and can speak properly. Then he himself presses the repeat button on the machine. Anna Flabet learns to read and must read for children in the library. Gjerta becomes angry when she has lost one more villain and forces the other villains to super-train.
The clumsy villain Klante Volante, who comes from a tightrope walker family, hates laughing people and remembers that people always laughed to him when he was a tightrope walker and always fell and he wants to destroy laughing. Gjerta gives him a spray-machine which can make laughing people quiet.
Klante Volante goes to school with his spray-machine and makes the children quiet from laughing with the spray. They shout for help and Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik come. They go to a circus and then Supersnällasilversara laughs to Klante who can't walk upstairs without falling, and when he shows the spray-machine, they understand that he is the laughing-vandal.
Klante calls Supersnällasilversara "stupid" so she becomes transformed to Supersurasunksara, who runs after him into the circus tent, where he walks on the tightrope, trying to escape. He can walk on a tightrope very well, but Supersurasunksara, who can't, falls down and then Klante laughs to her because she's so funny. He thinks laughing is funny but can't make children to laugh again, but Stålhenrik believes that the machine may have a reverse-button which can make people laughing again. He sprays himself so much that he laughs very much, so much that he "infects" the children with his laughing. Now Gjerta knows how Supersnällasilversara may be transformed to Supersurasunksara.
The Tinnitus Triplets hates music and steel the children's music instrument, but when the superheroes come, they help them to sing and their music is back. Then Gjerta becomes angry and gives the Tinnitus Triplets a machine which is able to make the whole world quiet from music and sounds.
On Julstjärnan, Vega and Nova see "ghosts".
The "ghosts" aren't ghosts, they are Supersnällasilversara, Stålhenrik and the other pensioners on Julstjärnan, who are singing for them in a Saint Lucy procession. After that Stålhenrik continues with telling Vega and Nova about the Tinnitus Triplets in Hjältedådsboken:
The Tinnitus Triplets bring their sound-destroy-machine up on a mountain. Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik sing with the children but when the Tinnitus Triplets activate their machine it is quiet and crunching. The superheroes discover the triplets and the machine.
On Julstjärnan, Vega and Nova think that something strange is happening.
The Tinnitus Triplets call Supersnällasilversara "stupid" so she becomes transformed to Supersurasunksara, who forces them to stop destroying sounds, but it is impossible for her to hunt 3 villains. Stålhenrik asks them to let him sing a last song and when they sing with him, they think music is funny. Gjerta becomes angry and forces them out from Barnverket. The villain Frigolit Fragile thinks children, who run and destroy in his house of cards-museum, are stupid and wants to wake them up during the night.
Frigolit Fragile wakes the children up during the night and a villain gang help him but they give up and Frigolit must wake them up alone, but must hide himself when they shout for help and the superheroes come.
Julstjärnan is vibrating as an earthquake.
When Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik have discovered Frigolit Fragile, he escapes with his truck, but the superheroes follow it in the air and land on it. Then Supersnällasilversara sings a lullaby so Frigolit sleeps.
When Frigolit Fragile wakes up, he says "stupid" to Supersnällasilversara so she becomes transformed to Supersurasunksara. Frigolit explains that the children are running and destroying in his house of cards-museum and he wants to "punish" them. They come with him to his museum and then Supersurasunksara destroys a house and shows how to build it up and Stålhenrik fixes the problem. Now Gjerta only has Uni Sax left in the gang of villains.
In a TV-program, Uni Sax says that she wants everyone to be the same as herself and goes to the children's homes and forces them to give her their clothes and toys and use new clothes and her finger dolls, which are exactly the same as Uni's clothes and her finger doll, called Uno. Then the children shout for help and the superheroes come.
When Uni Sax continues with her TV-program, she says "stupid" and Supersnällasilversara, who hears it when she watches the program with the children and Stålhenrik, becomes angry and transformed to Supersurasunksara and forces Stålhenrik to come with her to Barnverket, where they find Uni and her little box with finger dolls, which are the same as Uno, is a proof. Supersurasunksara takes away Uno from Uni's finger and puts him in the box so it is impossible to find him, but when Uni knows that Uno has a spot of jam on his face, she knows that people aren't the same, they are unique. She and the superheroes broadcast a funny TV-program and Uni brings the clothes and toys back to the children, but Gjerta, who now is alone, makes a machine which she can use to speak with Supersurasunksara's own voice. When she says that Stålhenrik is a coward, who is not strong and can't fly, he becomes angry and sad and goes away from Supersurasunksara. She follows him, but Gjerta fools her so she can trap her in a jail. When Stålhenrik finds Gjerta, he thinks Gjerta is nice and she fools him with saying that parties are bad for children.
On Julstjärnan an alarm sounds. Suddenly it becomes dark but Hustomten brings back the light. Stålhenrik continues telling about when he destroyed the children's parties for Vega and Nova in Hjältedådsboken.
Vega and Nova thinks that Olga Hott on Julstjärnan is strange and they are spying at her house. But they must escape when Olga Hott's coming, but Hustomten allows them to sit on his sledge and drink hot chocolate milk.
When Stålhenrik destroys a party, the children run after him and he runs back to Barnverket, where Flemming Flink has unlocked the jail so Supersurasunksara can come out, and she and the children learn him to behave properly. Together they laugh to Gjerta when she falls so she escapes with a space rocket. Now Supersnällasilversara and Stålhenrik have read the end of the story in Hjältedådsboken, but when Vega and Nova play, they find a model of Gjerta's space rocket, and on the model it is written "X98" and then they become afraid! They have seen "X98" on Hustomten's sledge and understand that Gjerta is on Julstjärnan. When they ask Hustomten about Gjerta, he takes off his head, which is a mask, and after that they see a new face, Gjerta's face!
Gjerta, who knows that Vega and Nova have betrayed her, forces them to come with her down to a big cellar, which is the machine room of Julstjärnan. She tells them that she first came to a locked door and blew it up so Julstjärnan vibrated as an earthquake and the 2nd door did she open with Järn-Jerry's key which she stole, but first she was forced to brake the alarm code and deactivate the alarm. First she thought the code was "Påskhare" ("Easter Bunny"), but later she knew that it was "Jultomte" ("Christmas Father"). After that she shows Vega and Nova the Julstjärnan-ball, which prevents Julstjärnan from leaving the Julstjärnan-orbit and disappear in the space forever. When they know that Gjerta'll steal it, they run for help, but Gjerta traps them in a cage with a remote control, but they shout for help, as the children on the Earth, so their grandparents hear the alarm and come. Stålhenrik opens the cage and they tell them that Gjerta is here and she was dressed up as Hustomten. With the remote control Gjerta traps Stålhenrik with a magnet and fools Supersnällasilversara with showing her a cat who is trapped and when she tries to rescue it, she's trapped in adhesive. Vega, Nova and Stålhenrik sing a stupid song, trying to transform Supersnällasilversara to Supersurasunksara, but she can't be transformed because she's to old, but when Gjerta irritates her and repeats the song, she becomes transformed, but Gjerta stops her with an irritating game and can escape and takes away the ladder when she leaves the cellar. Vega tries to fly up but can't.
Vega tries to fly, and now she can! Nova hangs on her back and they fly up from the cellar and shout to the other pensioners on Julstjärnan to trap Gjerta. She tries to escape with her rocket, but the pensioners come and press it down and Gjerta's trapped, but she throws away the Julstjärnan-ball, but Nova can catch it with her mind now when her "thinking-power" is activated. They fly back to the cellar and put the ball on the own place and Julstjärnan is rescued. Olga Hott (real name Helga Het) from Hemliga högtidsenheten (the Secret Unit) takes care of Gjerta and promises that Gjerta'll be forced to go in "be-nice-school" and maybe she'll be nice and kind. The next day Nova and Vega become dubbed to the superheroes Super-Nova and Mega-Vega, and at the evening Stuntstina, who has finished her missions, comes for pick them up.
