Storyline

A misunderstanding on Mars provokes an alien race called the Mysterons to declare a war of nerves on Earth. Throughout the series, they continually make terrorist threats and attempt to follow through with their ability to create obedient duplicates of anyone they kill. Their key opponent is the international intelligence organization, Spectrum, whose agents are code-named according to various colours. Their top agent in this war is Captain Scarlet, an agent who was subjected to the duplication process, but was still alive at the time. As a result, his clone was able to shake off the Mysterons' control, but leaving being him indestructible and able to survive any wound. Together with his partners, Captain Blue and Spectrum's fighter squadron, The Angels, the now immortal Captain Scarlet must constantly struggle to thwart the Mysterons' ever present threats.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Gerry Anderson explained in a DVD audio commentary why Symphony Angel's hair became shorter after a few episodes - it was thought she looked too much like Destiny Angel with long hair, so it was cropped to shoulder length. See more »

Goofs

In Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons: Spectrum Strikes Back it is mentioned that the only thing that can kill a Mysteron agent is high voltage electricity and that Spectrum has made an anti-Mysteron gun. However in both previous and following episodes we see normal guns with bullets killing Mysteron agents. Plus the Mysteron Gun does not appear in any other episodes except this one. See more »

Quotes

[repeated line]
Captain Black: This is Captain Black, relaying instructions from the Mysterons on mars. You know what you must do.
