   "The Flight of the Silver Saucers" (Captain Wings) 10 p. in

   Though the art is substantially the same, this story is a
   thorough re-write of the Captain Wings story in Wings
   Comics, no. 53 (Jan. 1945), where it is signed "L. Elias."
   -- Summary: "Madam X" is a grounded bomber upon which
   "whiz-bombs" have been inappropriately mounted. It has been
   damaged and its crew is injured, and the plane is scheduled
   to be dismantled. A Japanese Zero crash-lands near the
   base, and a woman survives, managing to make the men think
   they've captured secret plans. After the squadron has left
   to take advantage of the plans, the woman steals a gun and
   kills the radio operator. The crew of Madam X figures out
   what has happened, and leaves sick bay in a suicide mission
   to spring the ambush the Japanese have set up. On page 7, a
   Japanese radioman says, "Silver disks-- our greatest
   arsenal gone! Shoot down that plane at any cost!" The
   whiz-bomb shown in p. 1 does seem to be disc-shaped, though
   from the title and cover art we would expect flying saucer
   UFOs. -- Call no.: PN6728.1.F5W5no.112

   take the man to a nearby shelter when they see a craft
   manned by marauders from the future who have sapped
   Superman's powers. Justin leads him through the sewers.

   Justin who has found refuge for him in the Superman museum.
   Justin is saved from the fellow by the real Superman who
   reveals that the man is an escaped mental patient and the
   marauders were doctors. His mania is believing he is a
   reincarnation of Superman. He used advanced technology to
