Synopsis for "Hawkman: “The Sunspot Wizard”"

Professor Kitzoff has noticed a correlation between sunspot activity with wars and crime, and based on this scientific discovery, has invented a device that can control sunspots, and make people go crazy. It also harnesses the power of sunspots into a deadly heat ray, with which he shoots down an airliner. Soon “The Sunspot Wizard” makes his bid to terrorize the world, in an attempt to rule mankind. When science-dabbler Carter Hall learns of the increased sunspot activity, he packs up a Norman-style spiked mace, puts on his wings, and investigates the professor's lab, in which he evades at least one boobytrap. Though he destroys the sunspot device, Hawkman is shot and believed to be dead (but was really only knocked unconscious). The evil professor nails the Hawk up inside a crate, and prepares to move to South America, to build a new machine, and to take the body of Hawkman with him (to avoid leaving evidence, except he stupidly leaves behind Hawky's big spikey mace). Hawkman soon recovers and escapes, by flying his whole crate to a sawmill and running it thru a buzzsaw (!), and traces the professor to Lahojas in South America, where Kitzoff has constructed another device. Hawkman destroys the new machine, and throws his heavy mace right into the professor’s face. Kitzoff survives that, briefly, but soon is shot dead by his own men, by mistake.

  • Hawkman has now killed at least twelve evildoers, mostly on purpose, and been bulletwounded twice.
