Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "The Lost Lightning"

German bombers destroy the home of the gods on Mount Olympus, and in search of a new home Mercury leads them to an isolated land he discovered long ago, only to learn that in the time since his visit this land has become the United States of America and the gods are offended by all the noise and confusion of modern cities.

Meanwhile Billy Batson has been fitted with cement shoes and thrown off a pier by Riggshaw the racket boss, and calls out to transform into Captain Marvel. Cap easily escapes and fights off the gangsters, only for Zeus to refuse to answer Billy's calls for magic lightning in the future, so annoyed is the king of the gods by all the chaos of the modern world. Billy agrees to take the gods to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, which are enough like their former home to satisfy them for the time being.

Word soon reaches the underworld that they no longer have to fear Captain Marvel, and soon Riggshaw is boldy expanding his operations, Japan launches a huge naval fleet to invade America, Nazi saboteurs step up their activities, gangsters act unimpeded, and Printwhistle goes back on his promise to reform and transforms into IBAC again before going on a robbery spree.

Even being unable to change to Captain Marvel, Billy Batson is determined to do something about all the criminal activity and takes on Riggshaw only to be easily knocked out. He calls out his magic word, and Zeus continues to resist, only for the other gods to tell him that their search for serenity is hopeless with the forces of evil running rampant. Realizing they're right, Zeus relents and he and the gods come along to help Captain Marvel defeat the numerous evildoers (Neptune destroys the Japanese fleet, Zeus uses a thunderbolt to summon hellfire and return the unconscious IBAC to normal, Cupid makes Nazi spies fall in love with America, etc). With evil repelled again, the gods leave in search of a new home.
