Synopsis for "The Tomb of the Unknown Blackhawk"
Some time after its destruction, the second Blackhawk Island was already under construction, AND a warning buoy had been placed at the former site of the old Blackhawk Island, which was now just radioactive seawater. Nazis attacked: 1/ Dimett England with a company of infantry, 2/ 10 Downing Street London with an assassin team, and 3/ a peace conference in Belvar (not in England) with a 2nd assassin team. Each attack included one of the Hitler lookalikes from the Verdoppelung Project, each equipped with an electrical field generating belt and an instantly-inflating harnessed helium balloon. Genuine Blackhawks met attacks 1 & 2, staving off an invasion beachhead and saving Winston Churchill from the assassins; the 3rd was foiled by temporarily-invisible American nebbish Winslow Shirk, in a spare Blackhawk uniform and a latex mask, who fled the scene immediately and invisibly. Mr. Shirk got his invisibility from exposure to radioactive fallout at the former site of Blackhawk Island.

- Soon Kai-Sen, Chinese Resistance leader
Synopsis for Detached Service Diary, Chop Chop: "The Long Road Runs Both Ways!"
Chop Chop investigates a Manchurian-style palace, in the Swiss Alps, and is surprised to find his old mentor and guerilla commander Soong Kai-Sen. Two years earlier, Soong had abandoned the war in China and retired to this villa, a revelation which greatly offends Wu Cheng. Just at that moment a ninja assassin shows up (who has spent months searching for Kai-Sen) and tries to murder the old man. Unarmed Wu Cheng outfights the well-armed ninja, who ends the fight by committing seppuku. Wu Cheng fails to convince Soong Kai-Sen to return to the fight in China, but instead is left pondering whether he himself should do so.
- In this timeline, young Blackhawk attended a military academy in the U.S., and was named "Bart."
- Wu Cheng is from Manchuria.
- Because of the ambiguity of Blackhawk #258 not even a year can be assigned to these events.
