The Wiggins Game company is looking to market play boomerangs as their next big sales sensation, and the owner W.W. Wiggin's puts out an advertisement looking for somebody to play the company mascot. "Digger" Harkness, a petty crook decides to apply for the job to launch his own criminal career as Captain Boomerang, using gimmicked boomerangs to commit crimes.
When word of Captain Boomerang's first robbery reches Barry Allen who is out on a date with Iris West, he leaves suddenly, leaving her to wonder why Barry disappears whenever the Flash appears to fight crime. Confronting Captain Boomerang, the Flash falls for a sob story that he's on the straight and narrow and that he's working to help care for his elderly parents (really crooks in disguise.) Flash falls for it and soon finds himself knocked out.
When he revives, he finds himself tied to a giant boomerang, which the Captain launches into the ocean, however the Flash manages to free himself and capture Captain Boomerang, turning him over to the police.
