Synopsis
Bobby catches a cold when he goes to get his new comics from a local store. Then, aliens invade Boston and the governor calls for the Crusaders to help. Eager to join his heroes, Bobby changes into Thunder Bunny, but his head cold makes him unintelligible. The Crusaders see him and mistake him for one of the aliens.
