With psychotic hit man Bates (Tim Harris) & Thackery , a foe who can match their powers, the Champions face their most deadly assignment.

Notes

* Filming started in 1988 and finished in 1992

* There were 3 directors (in other words, a third of the cast directed it!)

* The script was radically altered due to unavailability of some of those involved

* Two versions exist, with version two being the most widely viewed. Version one has different footage of Pierpoint in the final scene with Bates

* A sequel, CHAMPIONS II was written but not filmed
