Plot Sypnosis:

Visions are part of everyday hospital life for psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Strange (Peter Hooten). When he himself is attacked by them one day, they become a brutal reality for him. He gets caught up in a whirlwind of events in which reality and dream become blurred. All of a sudden, he has superhuman powers that open up completely new dimensions for him. Together with the old scientist Lindmer, who is in search of a medieval secret, Strange finds himself step by step in a new world on a battlefield where the forces of good and evil are in eternal conflict.

The Marvel hero in red, white and blue Captain America was created in 1940 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon. In 1979, this origin story brought the superhero back to life in the first live-action adaptation of the classic material. Steve Rogers (Reb Brown), a death-defying motocross rider, is saved after an accident by a new serum developed by his late father. It improves Steve's senses and reflexes and gives him superpowers. On behalf of the government, Captain America goes into battle against the forces of evil with his legendary protective shield and a rocket-powered motorcycle...

Terrorist General Miguel (Christopher Lee) kidnaps Professor Ian llson. He develops a sinister chemical that causes people to age rapidly. With this weapon of mass destruction, Miguel wants to extort ransom money in the millions. Only Steve Rogers, who has been transformed into the superhero Captain America by a serum, can stop him. In the name of justice and freedom, he fights the terrorist villain with his newly tuned, airworthy motorcycle.
