Synopsis
The belligerent mayor orders Jetman out immediately, saying that he's too old-fashioned for the age of terrorism, and insisting that iron leadership is needed. To that end he has appointed in Jetman's place the half-human, half-robot Major Cindercott, a veteran soldier. Before they even know that Jetman is gone, the officers are hit with draconic new regulations.
