Synopsis for "Double-Deal in Dallas!"

In Dallas, a shooter had attempted to assassinate President John F. Kennedy, but was unable to kill him as the figure emerged, ripped off his face and suit, revealing himself to actually be U.S.A., Ultimate Special Agent. Both the driver and Jackie Kennedy were somewhat aware of the planned assassination attempt on the real President Kennedy. Next, U.S.A. leaped out of the car and into the window of a building where he attempted to pursue the shooter. The shooter disappeared in a flash, but then U.S.A. saw an individual tied up, lying down, resembling the shooter. Then, U.S.A. decided to bring the shooter's double to the Dallas Police Department. When U.S.A. brought the shooter's double to the police, they identified him as Leo Harley Osborne. The police suggested that Osborne's double may not have intended to assassinate the president and claimed that they found two men with long-range rifles disabled by shots to the arm. Next, the Kennedys approached U.S.A. and thanked him while the president claimed that his father saw the superhero in action with the Gang-Busters in the 1920s.

Next, U.S.A. went to Osborne's residence to search for clues. When he searched the residence, he found a newspaper from the Dallas Times with a headline about President Kennedy's arrival in Dallas next to his Communist Party membership card. U.S.A. found a pamphlet with details of Osborne's trip to Russia and a card from nightclub owner Brian Ruby. Quickly, U.S.A. rushed away from the house. Meanwhile, Osborne was in prison, seemingly calm, much to the confusion of two law enforcement men in suits. The two men dragged Osborne out as the media gathered around. Suddenly, a man carrying a gun attempted to kill Osborne, declaring him "a rat." However, the man did not kill Osborne as U.S.A. quickly got in the way of the bullet, taking no damage. U.S.A. punched the man in the face, who claimed to be "a patriotic nightclub owner" who was, in fact, Brian Ruby, and suddenly turned into the Red Brain. Red Brain knocked down the hero with a psionic blast from his brain. Next, the villain used his brain powers to turn the policemen nearby into zombies. Not wanting to hurt the policemen, U.S.A. dodged their gunfire until he reached Red Brain and threw him into a pile of trash cans. As the Red Brain appeared to be defeated, U.S.A. let his guard down and looked into Red Brain's eyes, disorienting him. However, U.S.A. was able to resist the Red Brain's powers and land a blow on him. However, the Red Brain was able to knock him down again. Before Red Brain could finish U.S.A., an impersonator of Leo Harley Osborne appeared, took a weapon out from a newspaper, and blasted the villain, leaving him paralyzed. U.S.A. attempted to get an explanation from the impersonator, but before he could, the latter teleported away. Afterwards, the police came and told him that he had received a call from Infra-Man.

Synopsis for "It Came From...Higher Space!"

Inside of his space station Hyperbase One, Hypernaut had finished soaking in his intelligence tank and went to his pet monkey Queep and found a message from Inframan, assuming that it was "Tomorrow Syndicate business." Next, Hypernaut decided to perform routine maintenance inspection on the station. Afterwards, Hypernaut decided to sit down with Queep and remember the time when Dan Stevens, whose memories he has, was "flesh and blood." In a flashback, Dan Stevens was piloting a prototype jet that started to disintegrate until a flying saucer took Stevens and his jet and experimented on him, transferring his brain, atom by atom, into the body of Hypernaut, while the original body died and Dan Stevens' consciousness lived on in Hypernaut.

Suddenly, Hypernaut and Queep learned of a disturbance near their station. Hypernaut flew with Queep, searching the station until they arrived at the Cyberdrome and encountered what appeared to be pieces of flesh materializing and becoming three-dimensional from an area of rippled space. Eventually, the pieces of flesh formed a creature called 4-D Man. The creature claimed that he was at the station to kill him. Hypernaut attempted to shoot a laser at 4-D Man, but the creature who could fold space, caused the laser to deflect and hit back at the hero. Hypernaut and Queep attempted to run away into a door that they closed afterwards, but the 4-D Man was able to reach the hero and his monkey past the closed door and throw them through the cyberframe into Flatland. Then, Hypernaut got an idea on how to defeat his foe. He waited for the 4-D Man to arrive and enter Flatland, but the creature outsmarted the hero and attacked him from behind. Next, 4-D Man took a thermal key and shot it at Hypernaut, damaging his armor. Next, the 4-D Man destroyed Hypernaut's suit with another blast. Queep quickly rushed through the station with Hypernaut's Cerebro-Sphere into the 4-D Man's brain. Then, Hypernaut attempted to scramble 4-D Man's mind by playing back information that his intelligence tank had absorbed. Unable to withstand the information overload, the 4-D Man withdrew from the dimension. Next, Hypernaut picked a new suit to transfer his consciousness from the Cerebro-Sphere into. Next, Hypernaut looked out into the space station's window with Queep, remembering that he had recieved a message from Inframan earlier.

Letters page.

Trivia

  • The letters page in "Mails to the Uncanny" pokes fun at several DC characters including Martian Manhunter and Aquaman saying "you have left behind your Decrepit Competition that is still making comics for little kids like about a green guy from Mars, a merman with a pet octopus that twirls its descending tentacles, mischievous mites from silly dimensions and a future guy who fights crime in a pair of purple Bermuda shorts. Your comics are NOT for little kids." In response, they referred to their rivals as Definitely Clueless.
    • Both "Decrepit Competition" and "Definitely Clueless" are references to DC Comics.
  • At the last page of the issue, there is an advertisement for "MONSTER S-I-Z-E COMMIES", with a picture of Stalin, which offered life-sized posters of Lenin and Stalin.
