Quote1 The ray didn't melt your gun, because it's made of some sort of plastic. But you forgot that the bullets ... being metal ... DID disintegrate! Quote2

Synopsis for Captain X: "One-Man Blitzkrieg"

While hunting Messerschmitts and Heinkels over northern France one day, Buck Dare spots a Spitfire, flying in the wrong direction, and tails it. The Spitfire suddenly vanishes, but its pilot does not. Buck discerns that his parachute is fouled, and swoops into rescue position, switches off his motor (to let the gravity controls go into action), holding Jenny stationary, then swings on a wire, catches the pilot, and climbs back into the cockpit with him. At an airport in England, Captain X and the rescued pilot tell an officer what they encountered, and what X thinks it means, that the Germans must have some sort of metal-disintegrator weapon. He borrows a Spitfire, and has his mechanic follow him in Jenny, then returns to northern France, and flies around, trying to attract attention.

Eventually he flies over a country estate, where Kurt Graff is demonstrating his new weapon to some German officers; it instantly destroys the Spitfire. Captain X is able to parachute safely away because he replaced the metal fittings on his chute with plastic ones. The Germans on the ground shoot at him, and eventually persuade themselves that they've hit him. Three German officers depart in an open staff car, and as they're driving through the woods, Captain X drops onto them from a low-hanging limb. One short fistfight later, Captain X is driving the car and three unconscious officers are piled in the back seat. As it approaches the manor house, the car itself vanishes, dumping everybody out onto the road. Then old Graff follows up with a rifle shot that takes down Captain X. He's still alive, and Graff stops one of the officers from shooting him, because he wants to demonstrate the invention, and have a good gloat.

In the demonstration, it's shown that this weapon of his can destroy naval ships just as easily as aircraft. As soon as it's over, Colonel Haupman marches Captain X into another room, and tries to shoot him, but the bullets in his (plastic) gun were disintegrated during the demo. Captain X punches out the colonel, then swings back into the main room on a chandelier and punches out two more officers, and old Graff. Stuffy lands Jenny nearby, and they load Graff, Graff's machine, and themselves into the cockpit, and fly back to England.
