Episode Summary

Planet of the Capes
When Comet Guy returns, he tells Darkwing he needs him back on his planet. Darkwing thinks that he's going to have to save the planet, until he finds out that everyone on the planet is a hero, and they need him as their "ordinary guy," since the last one left. They want Darkwing to be there 'damsel in distress,' so that they'll have someone to rescue. But Darkwing gets fed up, so he tries to turn Comet Guy into a villian.moreless
