From the archives of the mighty Ancients, Curt Newton brings back forgotten Denebian science to balk a greed-maddened schemer who seeks to loose unspeakable terror on the Universe!
As Captain Future stories continued to be written, it likely became necessary for Newton and the Futuremen to make their way beyond our own solar system, even our own galaxy. To this end, Captain Future eventually invents the ‘vibration drive’, a device that essentially allows the band of heroes to go anywhere they need to to protect the universe. New planets get explored and galaxies unheard of spring into life, all teeming with some mystery and evil for Captain Future to face. Travel between dimensions even becomes possible, as does time travel!
Ready to battle with fists and weapons if he has to, Captain Future also has other skills that often come into play. Curtis Newton shows compassion throughout the series, for those around him and aliens new to him. Unlike many science fiction heroes, Captain Future doesn’t assume that a new being he encounters is evil just because they are different. Many of the conflicts are simply misunderstandings and Captain Future proves himself as strong a diplomat as he is a fighter.
Captain Future has no shortage of enemies. Beings from across the universe and beyond plot to dominate planets, to destroy galaxies, and find themselves defeated by Captain Future. Only one of his foes, however, proved evil enough to face Captain Future twice. Ull Quorn, The Magician of Mars, is actually the son of the man responsible for murdering Curtis Newton’s parents. Intelligent, ruthless, and strong, Quorn is nearly Captain Future’s equal in every way and comes closer than any to ending the life of the Man of Tomorrow.
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Spring 1945 issue of Captain Future magazine, “Red Sun of Danger” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.
