Synopsis: Joshua Jones has arrived in Hollywood, California, as a refugee from the violence and prejudice of the American South. Haunted by his father's brutal murder, he strives to surpass bigotry in the movie industry until an exotic location shot reveals a new life path for the young man. Granted power over gravity by the ancient and mysterious Element 115, Joshua is able to manipulate gravity at will to insure the safety of Los Angeles residents. However, he must cloak his identity in absolute secrecy as prejudice still dominates the American culture. He hides behind the mask of the popular B-Movie character, Captain Gravity, and finds acceptance as a real-life celluloid hero. Joshua's privacy is threatened when his best friend, starlet Chase DuBois, becomes a spy for the American government. As Chase finds herself embroiled in a mystery involving the enigmatic symbol stamped on European war machines, the Swastika, Joshua follows her and discovers that the evil capable of launching the planet into war is an evil that has many faces.

From Booklist: Hollywood, 1939. Josh Jones has escaped rural Mississippi racism and found a makeshift family among other refugees in Tinseltown. His secret life as Captain Gravity is known only to best friends C. F. Avery, a movie director, and Chase Dubois, a starlet. He isn't the only spare-time hero. Chase has been spying for the government, keeping tabs on prominent German archaeologist Jan Gunther. When her worst fears are confirmed at a dig in the Middle East, Captain Gravity must save her and the world. Dysart and team's conception resonates with comics and pulp history from early Superman and Batman onward. Its devices are stock but never unlovable. There are the plucky underdog hero, the beautiful but steely damsel in distress, and those ultimate villains, Nazis. The action is relentless. Yet this is by no means the usual rehashing job. Sal Velluto's art is so in tune with the thirties Hollywood story that you can almost hear soundtrack music. A fresh and loving homage to the pulps, early comics, and sci-fi movie serials.
