History: As a child Luca Ferrari fell into a radioactive paddy field, which granted him superhuman powers, and as an adult he became Capitan Navara to protect his home town and surrounding parts of Italy. The city and territory of Novara (Italy) are at the centre of many battles for those seeking power through conquest, such as the super criminal Rospo Rosso, whose criminal organization seeks to conquer Novara, then Italy, and ultimately the whole world. Working with the C.I.A. and their alien agent Smithers, who spent many years as a prisoner in Rosso's secret labs, Capitan Novara fights to prevent Rospo Rosso from achieving his dreams of domination. But there are many other enemies with similar ambitions, and Capitan Novara and C.I.A., with their allies Vco Force and Croce Bianca, stand in opposition to them all!
