Comic Book Characters

Captain Justice - Comic book hero created by cartoonist Abner Bevis (Milo O'Shea) on the fantasy adventure ONCE A HERO/ABC/1987. This short-lived series starred Captain Justice (Jeff Lester), a fictional Pizazz Comics character who discovers that fewer and fewer people were reading his 'Captain Justice' comic books. Realizing that without readers his character would disappear (shades of Tinker Bell!), Captain Justice, (a.k.a. "The Crimson Crusader") left the two-dimensional world of the Forbidden Zone and entered the real world. Unfortunately, reality had its drawbacks. The Captain was now mortal, and as such, could no longer deflect bullet, fly through the air etc.

Assisting our costumed stranger in a strange new world was Gumshoe (Robert Forster), a Humphrey Bogart look-alike dressed in a raincoat and hat who helped the Captain battle such baddies as Max Mayhem, Lobsterman, and Dr. Destructo.

Captain Justice and friends faded quickly from sight soon after their debut. Like the comic book, this series needed viewers to survive.
