Synopsis for Deadman: "Never Say Die!"
Deadman inhabits the body of a pigeon to keep Abraham Gold from shooting himself. He is depressed because his son Jacob makes a living pushing drugs for mobster Mr. Caprice. After a confrontation with Abraham, his son finally decides to quit Caprice's gang and go straight. Deadman follows the son to Caprice's hideout. Meanwhile, unknown to Deadman and the son, Abraham has come to kill the gang leader. Deadman tries to prevent the old man from committing murder by inhabiting his body, but he gets him killed by Caprice's gunfire instead. Deadman then hops into the son's body, defeats the gang, and tells Caprice that the police will soon be there to arrest them all, because of the gunfire noise. Caprice commits suicide.

Senator O'Fallon was unnamed in this story, and was often assumed to be Joseph McCarthy or a stand-in, which was probably the original intent. America vs. the Justice Society #1 established his identity retroactively and explained that in this Earth Joseph McCarthy died a few years earlier due to a car accident.
