Immediately afterwards he says "That's odd. I feel amazing strength surging through me - must be due to the atomic radiation! I'm a super-man - and that gives me an idea - I'll outdo those comicbook heroes - as Captain Might!"
Shortly after this the evil Marvo the Magician kidnaps Professor Maxted, a man high up in the nuclear organisation. Captain Might tracks Marvo back to his hideout, where he finds the villain torturing Maxted. Luckily for the hapless professor, the Magician proves to be no match for the hero, who soon rescues him.
