Synopsis for "The Golden Mummy"

The Blackhawks are flying a patrol over a desert when they see raiders on horseback shooting towards an ancient tomb. Blackhawk fires at them while the others land, scaring the raiders away. In the tomb are archeologists Alice Lassler and her father Hamilton Lassler. They have discovered the sarcophagus of the Golden Monarch, the greatest ruler of the area who legend says will return to life someday and return his people to greatness. They open the sarcophagus and find a mummy wrapped in strips of gold. Later, the mummy disappears from a local museum, and the people think he has come back and begin to riot. Over the next few days the riots spread. Eventually, the Blackhawks hear a radio report that the Golden Monarch has been spotted on the streets of the capital. The Blackhawks arrive to find the Golden Mummy being carried through the streets in a chair. Blackhawk shoots at the mummy, but he gets out of the chair and attacks. He throws Olaf, then advances on the others who are shooting at him from an armored car. The mummy throws the car against the side of a building and leaves. He leads the natives into the hills and prepares them to attack the government. That night Blackhawk parachuted into their camp. He confronts the Mummy and throws a thermite bomb at it, revealing it to be a robot. The other Blackhawks have tracked the radio signals controlling the Mummy. Blackhawk leads the native there and find the Lasslers, really agents of a foreign power.

Synopsis for "Disaster Island"

The Blackhawks are returning to Blackhawk Island when they see a new island nearby. On the island, two men see the planes and go through a trap door. The island is really camouflage for a submarine. When the Blackhawks land, the island has disappeared. That night, Chop Chop goes for a midnight snack as Lorac orders the sub to surface next to Blackhawk Island. They plan to loot the Blackhawks, but decide to kidnap Chop Chop instead. The next morning, the fake island rams a ship and takes its cargo. As the Blackhawks are evacuating the ship's crew to the mainland, they get a ransom demand for Chop Chop by radio. The captain of the cargo ship helps Blackhawk get a ship ready and starts a rumor the ship is carrying uranium. When the submarine crashes into the ship, Blackhawk sneaks onboard and recues Chop Chop while the others defeat Lorac's men.

Synopsis for "Dancing Skeletons"

At a uranium mine in the Andes, dancing skeletons have appeared in the night sky. The native employees have been scared off, leaving only the mine executives who fear the government will shut them down because they are not contributing to the war effort. The mine superintendent, George Jethroe, and his assistant Sam Lauder are discussing the skeletons when Lauder remarks that they seem like something from a show. Jethroe is reminded of the Halloween show he saw at the Music Hall in New York. Members of the chorus dressed in black tights with skeletons painted on them in fluorescent paint, then danced under a black light. That night Jethroe and Lauder pretended to go to bed, then slipped out to where the skeletons danced. They flashed a portable spotlight where the skeletons first appeared and heard someone running through the brush. They found a black light projector aimed at three black kites that the skeletons were painted on. They took the black light to the barracks and captured the man with fluorescent paint on his hands.

Synopsis for "Death's Comet"

A scientist, Dr. Moorhead is sentenced to the gas chamber for selling hydrogen bomb secrets to the enemy. However, he created explosives using the cellulose from a deck of cards and escapes. Several days later, a woman delivers a message from Moorhead. He threatens to destroy the world unless the united World Council surrenders to him. When Blackhawk scoffs at this, the woman warns him to watch the night sky. In the evening, the Blackhawks are doing just that when Blackhawk and Olaf realize that Smalley’s Comet is a million miles closer than it should be. Within a few days, the comet appears as large as the moon, causing destructive tides and winds. An eruption on the ocean floor causes a tsunami which forces the Blackhawks to evacuate Blackhawk Island. This is followed by more eruptions, floods, earthquakes and heat waves. Finally, as the United Nations and a council of scientists realize that Moorhead must be using a gravity ray, he broadcasts an ultimatum across every wavelength. A riot immediately begins outside the UN building. Realizing that the mob organized too quickly to be a coincidence, the Blackhawks spot the woman who first delivered Moorhead’s threat. They take to their planes and follow her. Blackhawk’s plane flies into the gravity beam, but he manages to land, defeat Moorhead’s men, and capture Moorhead and the girl before the rest of his men arrive. Smalley’s Comet returns to a safe orbit, and the Blackhawks begin repairs on Blackhawk Island.
