Tex Thompson was a crimefighter who disappeared from the American eye in 1942 to fight the Nazi threat from within. He killed the German superhero Parsifal and Adolf Hitler himself. He returned to America a hero and becomes a senator with presidential aspirations.
He organized a program to defend America from the Soviet menace with a new group of superheroes. He rallied the Atom, Robotman, and Daniel Dunbar to his cause. He used a group of scientists to transform Dunbar into Dynaman, "a super-hero for the new age."
The heroes of the story discover that Tex Thompson had actually been killed in the war. The man who returned was actually the Ultra-Humanite. The Ultra-Humanite told Hitler that Thompson was a spy, so they killed him and put Ultra's brain into Thompson's body. The experiment which created Dynaman was actually the Humanite putting Hitler's brain in Dunbar's body. Ultra-Humanite was stopped by Manhunter, who had witnessed the operation, but suffered from memory loss after hitting his head trying to escape.
Once transformed into a superpowered being, Dynaman was groomed to assist Thomson when he becomes president of the United States. The plot is revealed by the JSA, who fought him in a massive battle where many lost their lives. After being softened up by Green Lantern, Dynaman was finally killed by Liberty Belle.
