Synopsis for "Hawks of Horror"

The United World Council has gathered the greatest scientists of the world at the Citadel of Science on a remote island. Dr. Ivander is shot while taking a phone call in his office, however he is soon seen unharmed. Meanwhile, Blackhawk has invented a robot dog capable of tracking someone by their brainwaves. He has recorded the brainwaves of all the Blackhawks to test it. Blackhawk takes the robot and the recordings to the Citadel, where he is knocked out and the inventions are stolen. Blackhawk has compound skull fractures and it takes him several days to recover. When he returns to Blackhawk Island, he is attacked by a robot hawk with a jet engine. Blackhawk shoots the hawk, but another appears. Blackhawk determines the hawks must be tracking their brainwaves and have bombs set to go off when they get close to their targets. He orders the others into the cellar and disarms the other hawk. They then hear a radio broadcast from someone calling himself the Hawk Master. Within the hour he will kill the leaders of Saigonia, then kill the leaders of one country every hour until the world surrenders to him. In Saigonia, a flock of robot hawks enter the capital building and explode. Blackhawk determined that the metal used in the robot is a new kind developed at the Citadel of Science. They fly to the Citadel and gather the scientists. Blackhawk tells them that one of them is an imposter, but he previously recorded their brainwaves and can detect the imposter that way. Dr. Ivander calls for guards, but the Blackhawks defeat them. Blackhawk reveals that the real Dr. Ivander is dead and the imposter is his twin brother who recently escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane.

Also, there is a supply of wood which allows the inhabitants to build walkways between the ships. Within a few days, the Blackhawks have settled into the relaxed, stress-free life of the Sargasso Sea. Soon a new ship arrives: a Nazi submarine! The subs crew had refused to surrender at the end of World War II, and turned pirate until a new fuehrer would arise in Germany. The old conflict resumes, but the Nazis are better armed than the Blackhawks. The Nazis kill Erick, the Viking, then imprison the Blackhawks on Captain Cutlass’ ship. Sensing trouble, Cutlass hid on his ship and now frees the Blackhawks The pirate ship attacks the sub while the Blackhawks cover themselves in seaweed to approach the sub unseen. The Nazis are defeated and Cutlass assures Blackhawk that the atmosphere of the Sargasso will soon make them peaceful.
