The Hawkman soars in the skies over San Francisco. The Hawkman flies alongside a half dozen B-17 Bombers. Piloting one of the bombers is astronomer Ted Knight. Suddenly, a strange mechanical eye appears in the sky. The light the eye emits shuts down one of the B-17 Bomber's engines. Knight excuses himself from the cockpit, to take action as the Starman. The Starman uses the power of his gravity rod to keep the bomber aloft, until it's engines restart. The Hawkman engages the flying eye, but finds it's protected by a field that slows his approach. The Hawkman catches a man, who falls from the flying eye.
The Starman teams-up with the Hawkman. The flying eye neutralizes their individual flying technology. Before the Hawkman, and the Starman, fall to their deaths, their flight powers return. The Starman returns to his B-17 Bomber. The Hawkman asks the Starman how he made officer so fast. The Starman reveals that he called in a favor from the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The Hawkman realizes that the man he caught, who fell from the flying eye, is dead. The Hawkman also realizes that he knows the man. The Hawkgirl, Johnny Quick, and the Shining Knight meet, to watch the sun rise over the Washington Monument.
There they run afoul of saboteurs, intent on destroying the Washington Monument. Though dealt a momentary setback, Johnny Quick is able to stop the saboteurs from detonating their explosives.

The German army battles the Russian army in the Crimean Peninsula. The flying eye appears in the sky, rendering all tanks inoperative, save one. The sole tank outside the flying eye's sphere of influence fires on the flying eye. That tank is in turn destroyed, when the flying eye fires back. As the flying eye departs, the war resumes.
