When humanitarian Darren Oak discovers that his own brother is behind a plot to take over the world, starting with Canada, he’s left with few choices. His brother’s organization needs to be stopped, but what can one man do against a group able to topple governments? The Canadian people need a hero to rally around, a symbol of hope to oppose the terrorists that seek to control their country. What better symbol than Canada’s own comic book sensation, Captain Canuck? In a desperate gamble, Darren creates a costume that will let him become Captain Canuck. By bringing this comic book super-hero into the “real” world, Darren and his allies hope to have the power and gain the support, necessary to defeat their enemies. This incarnation of Captain Canuck continued as a newspaper comic strip for a short while.
