In the 1940s, a Japanese military scientist discovered a means of rendering a person invisible. An entire platoon of "invisible special operations agents" were assembled and deprived of their visible appearances, though they were believed to have died in one of the Pacific battles. Nine years after the war, a car driving through Tokyo runs over an unseen object, which then materializes into view: one of the missing invisible men, having just committed suicide. This is because an invisible man will regain his appearance only in death. The dead man left a note confirming at least one of his comrades is still alive and present in Japan. The news is still fresh when a gang of men labeling themselves as "the invisible men" start terrorizing and plundering the city. A reporter named Komatsu starts digging into the background of the World War II agents, his investigations bringing him to a local clown named Nanjo. As it turns out, Nanjo is the sole surviving invisible man from Japan's war era, and the gang are merely impostors. Nanjo, who wears heavy makeup to remain visible to normal people, at first avoids contact with the gang until they murder one of his neighbors. Determined to stop their reign of terror, the former soldier removes his disguise, having become the Invisible Avenger...
