Synopsis for "The Origin of Blackhawk"

This story is reprinted from Military Comics #1.

Poland 1939 - Germany invades and Captain Von Tepp leads his famous "Butcher Squadron" against the greatly outnumbered Polish air force. The Poles fight valiantly but are shot from the sky until only one jet-black plane remains. Finally, the lone flyer is overwhelmed and crashes in a "pancake" landing. He runs for a nearby farmhouse but Von Tepp dives and drops a bomb on it. The flyer rushes in and calles for Jack and Connie, his brother and sister. Connie was killed instantly and Jack soon dies, too. Before he goes, Jack asks his brother to "get him for us, brother, make him pay."

Months pass by, and a squadron led by the mysterious "Blackhawk" has the Nazis scared. And the one question Blackhawk always asks is: where is Von Tepp? Von Tepp hears of this and lays a trap, at a comfortable chateau in France, with a pretty English nurse as bait. Blackhawk and his men surround the chateau and turn the tables on the Germans. He confronts Von Tepp, there is a brief distracting scuffle, but Blackhawk has captured the chateau's German staff. They are blindfolded, packed aboard Blackhawk Squadron's planes (long-range 4-engine bombers), and flown eastward, to Blackhawk Island. There Blackhawk challenges Von Tepp to an aerial duel, and gives him his choice of pursuit planes. Von Tepp of course cheats, and loosens the gas petcock on Blackhawk's plane. They shoot it out in the air; Blackhawk gets a fuel-supply problem, crashes his plane into Von Tepp's, both survive the resulting crash; they shoot it out with pistols; Von Tepp is killed.
