Synopsis
Hot on the trail of Jagga, Captain Albright gets an SOS from the planet Venus. When he and Icky land, they are greeted by Dr. Krell, originally from the planet Earth and a descendant of the lost kingdom of Atlantis. The SOS was sent, he says, because Jagga has taken over rule of his planet, so Captain Midnight confronts the evil tyrant. In a brief battle, Midnight drives Jagga away, but the villain drops a bomb toward Venus and Midnight thinks fast to counteract it.
