Nova is a young rebel who is an expert in the style of The Avenging Fist, a technique his father Thunder invented. He seeks to obtain the Power Glove, a weapon that can prove to be deadly if not used right. 20 years ago, an experiment was done on the power glove. The survivors were Dark, Thunder, and Combat 21. Combat 21 steals a glove and kidnaps and brainwashes Thunder. Today, Nova searches to learn the truth about his father with the help of Dark and Iron Surfer, a bartender who is also a martial arts champion. Meanwhile, Combat 21 plans to take over the government with the help of the Red Dragon Army. It is up to our heroes to stop him before it's too late.
