In this made-for-television adaptation of the Marvel superhero, Steve Rogers (Reb Brown of YOR: HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE), recently out of the Marines (despite that he has long hair), is approached by scientists Dr. Simon Mills and Dr. Wendy Day (Heather Menzies of LOGANS RUN TV series) who worked with his father. His dad had developed a super-steroid, called FLAG, that increases strength. Since it was based on his DNA the only other person who can take the drug without dying is his son. There are some guys who want to kill Steve, as they think he knows something he doesn't. First, they crash his van, then he's in a motorcycle accident which leaves him near death. Dr. Mills, in a last ditch effort to save his life, injects him with the serum and he quickly recovers. He's stronger (but not any smarter). And Dr. Mills tells him about his father, who was called "Captain America". In fact, he develops a special motorcycle and shield for him. The villain here is a guy who wants to explode a neutron bomb and they manage to prevent this just in time. This is pretty much "Captain America" in name-only. It's much more influenced by THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and Evel Knievel than the Marvel Comics character.
