Shep Ramsey is an interstellar hero, righting wrongs, et cetera. His ship is damaged after a fight with an interstellar nasty, and he must hide out on Earth until it can recharge. He leaves his power suit at home, but still finds himself unable to allow wrongs to go unrighted, and so mixes it up with bad drivers, offensive paperboys, muggers and the like. Then the family, with which he's staying, finds his power suit, and the father tries it on. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Quotes

Adrian Beltz: [Beltz is showing the Japanese businessmen around an unfinished part of the building where he awards are being displayed] By the way, do you like it in here? It's finished. I'm kidding, I'm kidding, but this is the way his building is going to look. These are all jokes. Anyway, take a look. Seriously, over here fellas. See that space? That's how confident I am about this project, I'm unveiling it at the signing.
