Synopsis for Hawkman: "The Secret of Dick Blendon"

Carter Hall learns that his old friend Dick Blendon is dead. When he consoles Dick's father, he meets Una Cathay, a scientist friend of Dick's, and he is suspicious of Una, her sinister associate, Count Torgoff, and her henchman Rolf. When he discovers that Dick's body is missing he investigates. Hawkman discovers that Una has revived Dick, and is keeping him prisoner with several other scientists, in oversized laboratory flasks, hoping to learn from her captives, one way or another, the secret of eternal life. Una, a scientist, tries to put a voodoo hex on Hawkman but thanks to Shiera's extremely keen eyesight and quick wits, he narrowly avoids being killed. He returns to her lab and rescues Dick, who, it turns out, was never really dead after all. Hawkman then confronts the villains, who have found their victims gone, and as Torgoff pulls a gun, Hawkman pins him to the wall with a dagger. Una makes her getaway during this action, and as Hawkman makes for the window to locate the fleeing villain, the Count frees himself and lunges at Hawkman just as he is flying out the window, and falls to his death. As Una Cathay makes for her car, the Hawkman swoops over and hurls a dagger, taking out one tire, causing Miss Cathay to hit a tree, breaking her neck.

Notes

  • Flash: The Trial Of Major Williams is reprinted in Golden Age Flash Archives Volume 1.
    • First issue for art by Everett E. Hibbard, replacing Harry Lampert.
    • Jay Garrick's superhero identity is publicly known in this story.
    • The name of Jay's college is referred to as Western State University instead of Midwestern University beginning in this story.
    • As in the previous issue, The Flash operates in New York City in this story.
    • The Flash forces a confession from Berstoff.
  • Hawkman: The Secret of Dick Blenden is reprinted in Golden Age Hawkman Archives Volume 1.
    • Last issue for Dennis Neville art, next issue Sheldon Moldoff takes over.
    • In this story, Carter Hall's home address is given as 20 Hudson Terrace. In Flash Comics #1 he lived at 88 Rimble Road. Carter Hall is quite wealthy and might simply own several expensive homes.
    • Dick Blendon and all of his scientist pals learn Hawkman's secret identity, but they all promise to keep it a secret. Carter Hall himself has been thus far quite careless about it.
    • Hawkman has now killed his 3rd and 4th evildoers, Count Torgoff and Una Cathay. Also henchman Rolf falls to his death from a rooftop.
    • Una Cathay's voodoo murder technique: she ties a hair onto Hawkman's wrist, with which she will burn the hero to death. Shiera Sanders spots this hair from across a room, makes the correct inference, and intervenes.
    • Una Cathay's formula for the secret of eternal life seems to still exist at the end of this story.
