The Martian ExpeditionEdit
After Spectrum began to monitor unusual signals from the red planet Mars, Colonel White sent his best man Captain Black to investigate. With Lieutenant Dean and Navigator Conway, the three men made the journey to Mars in a Zero-X. Largely unsuccessful, they were about to return to Earth when they found the Mysteron City.
The Mysterons were peaceful beings; they loved space exploration much like the three humans on the Martian Exploration Vehicle. Training suspicious looking cameras on the MEV, they welcomed the Earthmen to their planet. However, Captain Black believed that the creatures were hostile, and gave the order to fire. The city was obliterated.
Dean went to fetch his spacesuit to take samples, but before he could leave his seat a rock cracked open and a snake-like beam emerged. Beaming over the smouldering ruins, it began to rebuild the destroyed city. The Mysterons then introduced themselves formally, and revealed they had the power to reverse matter, as the Earthmen were currently witnessing. They then proceeded to start a War Of Nerves against all of Earth, in order to be avenged. Their first threat was to assassinate World President Younger.
Protecting The World PresidentEdit
Spectrum receives the assassination threat, and take no hesitation in sending out Captain Scarlet and Captain Brown for a secret rendezvous in New York, to discuss security arrangements with the World President. However, the car the two men are driving crashes, and both are killed instantly. But Captain Scarlet's body is dragged into a bush, by none other than an exact replica of himself!
The two men continue on their assignment, and Captain Scarlet reports back to Cloudbase. Colonel White doesn't suspect anything. Captain Brown escorts the World President in a Maximum Security Vehicle to a Maximum Security Building, while the Angels patrol overhead. A Spectrum Helicopter and armed guards also are on patrol.
When the two men arrive at the building, they are both put through an electronic scanner to check for any weapons or items that possess dangerous qualities. The President is cleared, but Captain Brown sends alarms ringing! Thankfully, it turns out Brown's cigarette case was to blame. The two men descend the 18 floors down to the Maximum Security Suite, where they will live for the next few weeks. The World President hopes Captain Brown can play a good game of three-dimensional chess, and goes to sit down at his desk. Captain Brown sits opposite him.
When the World President makes his feelings known and says he has nothing to fear while Spectrum are protecting him, but Captain Brown doesn't acknowledge this. He begins to smoke, quite literally, and before long blows up, destroying the building.
