Synopsis

When Herbert Crawford, renowned scientist, doesn’t appear at the meeting, Hawkman relates to the members Crawford’s theory that Earth was soon to be invaded by metal creatures from Jupiter. Hawkman had studied Crawford’s calculations, even spotting a spaceship on one of the charts heading towards Earth. According to Crawford’s studies, only metal was on board: living metal that could eat and grow! When reports come in involving strange occurrences involving metal, each member is assigned to investigate one of the areas involved with that occurrence.

They return to HQ to find Herbert Crawford waiting and he suddenly changes colours and begins to attack the members, stating that he has all the powers of the metal men. Hawkman figures, then, that Crawford also has their weaknesses, and that’s how the members finally subdue him. He apologises, and the JSA vow to help Crawford get re-established and use his knowledge for the benefit of the world after he is released from prison.
