Back Story of the 12-inch Doctor Evil Action Figure from Playing Mantis

In 1867, Dr. Evil was created to provide a rival for the popular Captain Action toy. This paved the way for a comic book featuring the battles of Captain Action and Dr. Evil. According to comic book lore, Dr. Evil started out as Captain Action's father-in-law, Dr. Stefan Tracy. An earthquake strikes Tracy's lab, causing a reaction that transforms him into an inhuman mutant. He dons a mask with the likeness of the former Tracy's face and sets about to destroy the world. Will his plan include the destruction of Captain Action as well?
