Abstract: Captain Scarlet is hardly a modern super - hero. The character harks back to the 1960s and the Cold War (though he was somewhat resurrected in the early 2000s). But what does he tell us about the modern world and systems of justice? What are the continuities and discontinuities in this Gerry Anderson creation in terms of current world problems? Does he speak at all to the 'modern' world and its current challenges of hyper - nationalism and suspicion of the other? In particular, has this super - hero found a new home in the apparently indestructible Donald Trump? Will justice prevail?
