Like Columbus before him, Captain Albright and Icky head into space to discover a new planet. Upon arrival, they are met by a green-skinned inventor, who shows Albright and Icky some of his inventions. Suddenly, they are attacked by the Purple Men, and, during the battle, the villains use the Molecular Projector to bring four infamous villains from the past to do battle. Unable to overcome Captain Midnight, the villains board Cap's spaceship and head toward Eath to enslave its people. Accomplishing this, Cap is further honored by having the new planet named Planet Albright!
