History: While acting the cultured gentleman outwardly, journalist Lance Harwood was secretly the masked crimefighter Captain Justice, bringing down outlaws and "bushrangers" in Australia's Outback. Often accused of being a bushranger himself, he was often in danger of being shot by state troopers; for his part, he was more concerned with justice than the law, and given the option would try and talk criminals into giving themselves up rather than killing them. After a while he travelled to America to fight criminals in the Wild West too.
