The conspirators are Aliens who look like humans. As in The Invaders , they disentigrate when they die. Very inconvenient for our hero!
This introduces the Paranoid Times zine. Cade Foster (Sebastian Spence - Supernatural ) recruits his first ally, a sidekick known as Crazy Eddie (Rob Labelle).
This week Foster and his nerdy pal take on the aliens. Apparently the bad guys have perfected a system of cloning.

Cade Foster (Sebastian Spence - Supernatural ) visits his wife's grave. Naturally the cops are waiting there, and nab him.

The Aliens come after Foster again. But he gets a chance to avenge his wife.
The aliens experimented on humans in Chicago, instead of doing it in a crappy third-world country. Equally stupid, the humans would rather frame Foster for murder than fight the aliens!

The next target is a defector who fell in love with a human scientist. The scientist understands FTL travel, so Cade Foster (Sebastian Spence - Supernatural ) tries to protect him.
