Set in 1940’s Manhattan in an America on the brink of war, Carson Kane patrols the streets at night in the guise of THE GLOOM, the criminal's Angel of Vengeance, his two Hellfire pistols only firing when aimed at the guilty.
And the guilty are there in force, for the Nazi menace has arrived in New York - and aided by masked criminal The Vermillion they intend to use a Zeppelin filled with atomic weaponry to destroy Allied peace talks in Yankee Stadium!
As the clock ticks down, The Gloom and his allies - Doc Adventure, The Professor, Turbine the Flying Man and many, many other recognizable-yet-significantly-different-enough-to-avoid-coypyright-lawyers-characters-from-1940's-pulp-series team up to save the world once more.
A parody and homage to the great serials of the Saturday morning matinees, THE GLOOM takes adventure and comedy and mixes it into a roller-coaster ride of adventure.
