THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE MYSTERONS; WE KNOW THAT YOU CAN HEAR US,
EARTHMEN. WE WILL DEAL ANOTHER CRUSHING BLOW. WE TOLD YOU WE INTEND TO
OBLITERATE THE SUB-CONTINENT OF NORTH AMERICA. WE WILL BE AVENGED.
The Mysterons threaten to destroy North America, and Captain Scarlet is sent on a special assignment to stop them.
However, at the casino he is sent to, he gambles all his money away and the owners get in touch with Spectrum. As gambling is
against Spectrum regulations, Colonel White feels that he has no choice but to ask for Scarlet's resignation.
Back at the casino, two men hire Metcalfe to steal an SPV for them. Before he does, however, the two men reveal themselves
to be Mysteron agents, and take him to Captain Black.
Captain Blue, who is trying to get to the bottom of Scarlet's mysterious behaviour, has followed them, and Black forces
Metcalfe to shoot Blue to prove his loyalty to them. He does so, and they leave to steal the SPV.
Blue comes around after the Mysterons have left - Metcalfe had shot him with an anaesthetic dart, and he discovers that the
Mysterons' target is Nuclear City in Nevada. When he contacts White, he is advised that Scarlet is undercover, and has not been
dismissed at all. Blue had not been advised as his reaction had to be genuine. If he had not been concerned, the Mysterons
would have been suspicious.
In the stolen SPV, the Mysterons reveal to Scarlet that they plan to take a nuclear detonator into Nuclear City and set off a
chain reaction that will destroy North America. Scarlet releases a smoke signal from the SPV, alerting the Angels, who have
been overflying him, to attack. The Mysterons, realising his deception, shoot him, but he ejects to safety before the SPV is
Back on Cloudbase, White congratulates Scarlet on a job well done.
