Blue Prime's title character is a dark vigilante who appears out of the shadows, attacking LA's criminal underworld and corrupt officials.
The ghostly figure is armored and armed with an array of weapons: dark 12-gauge shotgun, Taser, heavy automatic pistols on his hips, a wicked hunting knife sheathed to his boot, and at least one witness reported seeing nunchaku.
