The time for hiding and learning is past!  The new master-of-disguise-super-spy Captain Action is forced out into the open to capture or kill all superhumans who have been “co-opted” by the Red Crawl! One by one, he targets the Public Protectors, the “people’s heroes”, and becomes embroiled in a heated battle with the oh-so-hot CRESCENT!
