Colossus AD 2640. In the future Dr. Blitzmann has “perfected my glandular formula to control human growth” and gives it to Richard Zenith, to make him taller and stronger. Unfortunately, Blitzmann’s daughter mixed the formula too strongly, making Zenith grow to enormous size, something he revels in: “Blitzmann regrets, but Colossus is glad. Zenith is now Colossus, ruler of all Earth.” At the same time the Plantaliens of Ganymede launch their attack on Earth, leaving humans to fight both Colossus and then the Plantaliens.
