The Newsboy Legion is on quarantine in Cadmus labs, because they may have a flu. But they want action. Then they meet a Scrapper Trooper, who might just be able to help them out.
In Metropolis, Morgan Edge gets irritated at one of his employees (a Don Rickles-lookalike) , and decides to have him killed (!?). Well, that`s just one of the reasons. The other is, that he can`t meet Don Rickles (famous comedian at the time), because the consequences would be disastrous.
He also decides to get rid of Jimmy Olsen and Clark Kent, who have proved to be pests to his criminal businesses. He sends both of them to cover a UFO-story. Guardian goes with them.
Rickles is transported out of town, to the UFO. Our heroes arrive to the scene, and are attacked by brutish thugs. Rickles accidentally traps Kent inside the ship, and also manages to make it go all the way up to space! Oy!
Meanwhile, the Newsboys and Scrapper trooper get out of the labs.
The thugs batter and capture our heroes and take them away.
They are poisoned with Pyro granulate grains, that will make our heroes self combust in 24 hours! Oh boy, how will they get out of this pickle!?
