Barry Chase, a.k.a. Flyboy, returns in shame to Sol City after his failed attempt to start a new career elsewhere under a different name. He finds himself a man without a home, ridiculed by the press and abandoned by those he thought were his friends. Alone... until the notorious female villain Moonglow makes him an offer he may find too good to refuse. Will Flyboy cross the line from hero to villain, and is he prepared to pay the ultimate price for that decision?
