Background Info (courtesy of Jim Beard):

Captain Action is Miles Drake, a 1960s special operative for the A.C.T.I.O.N. Directorate, a secret government agency dedicated to identifying and eliminating extra-terrestrial threats.

Drake’s training comes from his time as a Navy SEAL and includes weapons-handling, covert operations, hand-to-hand combat, linguistics, tactics and strategy. He’s also a natural mimic and possesses an inherent acting ability which aids him in his most specialized skill: disguise. Using an incredible substance called “plastiderm,” Drake can alter his appearance to be able to fool just about anyone, even those close to the person he’s posing as.

Captain Action’s equipment includes his lightning sword, a nigh-unbreakable cutting weapon; a laser pistol; the Silver Streak, an amphibian-automobile crossover vehicle; and various high-tech communications devices.

Drake is near-fearless and dedicated to his duty as an A.C.T.I.O.N. agent. He balances a keen, analytical mind with an almost unquenchable drive to action when danger presents itself.

  1. Really enjoyed seeing your Marvel game stats for Captain Action. Very nostalgic. When I was young, I quite liked Captain Action and the somewhat similar British character of Captain Scarlet. Thanks for posting this.
