Abstract:

Undercover Brother uses gadgets and disguises to steal from the rich and give to the poor. His activities are discovered by the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., a spy organization devoted to subverting The Man and his henchman, Mr. Feather, who use their power over the media to demean black people and destroy racial unity. The spy organization is run by The Chief. When a popular black political figure calls a press conference, presumably to announce his presidential candidacy, he instead announces that he's opening a chain of fried chicken restaurants. The agency rightly suspects foul play.
