When a rookie cop is brutally killed and mysteriously brought back to life, he assumes the guise of The Spirit -- a masked crime fighter who prowls the shadows of Central City on a supernatural mission to keep the urban landscape safe. Upon discovering that his arch nemesis, The Octopus, is determined to live forever even if it means wiping out the entire population of Central City, The Spirit must race to stop the diabolical villain from achieving his cold-blooded plan. But even with his unique powers, the brave masked crusader will face a series of deadly challenges as a bevy of treacherous beauties including deceptively sweet girl next door Ellen Dolan, spitfire secretary Silken Floss, wraithlike siren Lorelei, seductive policewoman Morgenstern, and French black widow Plaster of Paris set out to seduce or consume him at every turn; even The Spirit's one true love, a volatile jewel thief named Sand Saref, could ultimately destroy our hero before he accomplishes his mission of saving Central City.
