Our hero, Klondike Perkins (formerly a Midwest farm boy), is a 19-year-old business intern at Cumbersome Corporation in New York City.
Cumbersome is a global conglomerate run by Herbert Snicker, the greedy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
Klondike has many “physical endowments” and attracts a band of admirers including: Tina, the Chairman’s daughter; Laura, the Chairman’s Administrative Assistant; Norma, a Human Resources Rep; Lucy, the Office Manager; and last but not least, Tito, the Chairman’s Special Projects Manager; Klondike is appointed manager of the new Corporate Well-Being Center to help improve employee health awareness, and then, unbeknown to all, Klondike is deputized by a mystical being named Rush to be Greed Ranger #1…a super hero empowered to stamp out corporate greed; As Rush’s secret emissary, Klondike is always “on call” and must intervene whenever the mystical leader identifies corporate abuse. Cumbersome’s new Chief Financial Officer, Greta Grinder, and her assistant, Chet, are Klondike’s allies and help him whenever they can.
Then, unexpectedly, everything changes. A corporate drug experiment gone wrong sends Klondike, Rush, and new friend Scorch, into deep space! They travel to Rush’s home world Zeel where they battle the primitive Rockheads. To sharpen Klondike’s fighting skills, Rush awards him an additional superhero personality, Snakeboy.
Unfortunately, the Rockheads tamper with Zeel’s control center and the world explodes sending the powerful aliens off to find a new home. At the same time, Klondike finds himself suddenly back on Earth where he’s asked by his boss to become the company’s representative at Trump headquarters.
