Kamen America tells the story of Charlotte "Carly" Vanders, a seamstress from Indiana who aspires to become a fashionista someday. She pursues all possible venues to make her dream come true, including joining the USO as a costume designer, dancer, and entertainer.
It's easier said than done, however, and Carly grows more and more frustrated as her goals become seemingly unattainable and her role remains unnoticed.
A twist of fate occurs during a tour for the troops abroad when a freak accident from the skies turns Carly into a living battery: super-charged and able to manipulate her bio-electricity into weapons and granting her the ability to fly ....and she becomes a blonde. That's sort of important later.
Unfortunately for her, a slew of monsters begin appearing at around the same time! Juggling between being a full-time monster fighter, fashionista, and famous idol is a difficult task, and Carly's principles are put to the test as she weighs her options - and frustrations - as the masked maiden known as Kamen America.
She'll also have to contend with a familiar foe from a foreign land, as she discovers that maybe lightning does strike twice!
