Synopsis: Shogun Warriors #13 opens with Dangard Ace tethered to the surface of the Moon by the minions of Dr. Demonicus like Gulliver by the Lilliputians. As the villains move in with a spacecraft to lift Dangard Ace back to their space station orbiting the Moon, pilot Ilongo Savage awakes and wonders what happened, gradually recalling the events of last issue and the blast that sent him to surface of the Moon. Combatra and Raydeen were knocked into space and find that they are unable to stop until the Followers of the Light direct them to an asteroid field where their retro rockets are able to reverse their course. Back near the Moon, Dangard Ace is carried to a space station where he lulls the villains into a false sense of security by playing possum before he springs into action. As Dangard Ace blasts his way through the hanger of the space station, Dr. Demonicus reveals himself on a giant projection screen, prompting the Followers of the Light to research his background. They learn that he was formerly a well-respected bio-geneticist who was injured during an unauthorized experiment, driving him mad and causing him to seek vengeance on those who interfered with his work. Pilot Ilongo talks with Demonicus and learns that he plans to strike the Earth with a second meteor and also that he is about to ambush Combatra and Raydeen as they return from deep space. Dangard Ace breaks free to save his teammates and the three Shogun Warriors return to the space station where they face a series of monstrous genetic mutations and other obstacles as they try to capture Dr. Demonicus. To be continued next issue in Should Heroes Fail…
