Synopsis
After the war, as most costumed heroes settle into private lives, Tex Thompson returns from Europe to begin a political career and makes plans to create a super-hero to defend against the Soviet threat. After Al Pratt is deemed unsuitable, Thompson seeks out the former Dan the Dyna-Mite for the job. Meanwhile, Paul Kirk returns from Europe haunted by his dreams, and is now the man being hunted.
