Synopsis for Seven Soldiers of Victory: "The Tyrants of Time"

Dr. Wilfred Doome invents a time machine, and uses it to recruit five conquerors: Nero, Attila, Bonaparte, Genghis Khan, and Alexander the Great, to accomplish a series of crimes in 1942. During a preliminary robbery, on Wall Street, the gang encounters and escapes from Green Arrow and Speedy, who call in the rest of the Seven Soldiers for a meeting. The villains have by bad luck acquired a walky-talky radio from Speedy, set to transmit, and Green Arrow holds the other radio, enabling the team to do some intermittent eavesdropping, and assemble some clues. Then they split up.

In Canada, the Star Spangled Kid and Stripesy pursue and defeat Napoleon Bonaparte; in Florida, Green Arrow and Speedy hunt down Alexander the Great; in Alaska, the Shining Knight and Winged Victory engage and defeat Genghis Khan and his Mongols and some hoodlums; in South Dakota, the Vigilante and Billy Gunn outgun Attila and his Huns; at sea, near Dr. Doome’s lighthouse hideout, The Crimson Avenger and Wing have some setbacks then overcome Nero’s forces. All five of these historic despots have escaped their opponents by using Doome’s equipment to return to their own times and places.

In the process of beating Nero, the Crimson Avenger has learned that the lighthouse is the base of the main villain, and soon the Seven Soldiers work their way through some death-traps, then corner Doome, who escapes by fleeing to the time and place of the Trojan War. Speedy finds a piece of Doome’s machinery, and enables the team to pursue him. In the shadow of the Trojan Horse, Sir Justin briefly converses with Odysseus (here called Ulysses), persuading him to turn against Dr. Doome, who again flees, back to 1942, and again is pursued through time itself. Doome desperately tries to flee, this time into the future, but his time machine explodes with him in it.
