Steve is a struggling actor who gets a job dressing up as the comic book hero Captain Avenger for appearances at book stores and conventions. While in costume, Steve manages to stop a grocery store hold-up, and because he leaves as soon as the police arrive, witnesses take his modest behavior as proof that he is an actual superhero. When the mayor of the city politicizes the situation to help him win the next election, the public turns against Captain Avenger. But after Steve rescues several people from a fire while wearing his street clothes, he becomes a real hero.
