   visits Carlos's mother at the Red Cross hospital and brings
   her up to date on her son's situation. Carlos's mother
   brings up the fact that Carlos's father is rich and

   Mastermind. -- Summary: In central Africa (also called
   "darkest Africa" here) a big game hunter comes upon
   "natives" being driven from their villages by apes with
   firebrands. Captain Marvel checks it out, and indeed the
   apes are occupying human villages and using human weapons.
   Captain Marvel assumes a human trainer is behind this
   behavior. The apes can't talk. Monkeys and chimpanzees are
   also acting this way. Captain Marvel next finds a band of
   white men with firebrands chasing black people, and the men
   tell him how to find their boss, whom they've never seen.
   The "ape mastermind" catches and gags Billy Batson, and
   explains himself. He was born extra intelligent, and knows
   both human speech and ape language. He plans to conquer
   Africa, then the world, because "humans have ruled Earth
   too long!" The ape is about to throw Billy into a fire,
   when the human henchmen arrive, curious to see what their
   boss is like. One of them says, "We aren't low enough to
   turn traitor to the human race by helping apes! It was all
   a mistake!" The ape is put in a cage to be studied by
   scientists for the rest of his "natural life." -- Data from

   Schwartz. 8 p. in Superman, no. 408 (June 1985) -- Summary
   (by Mary Walker): Superman finds a large intergenerational
   ship with a war raging on board most of the vessel while
   the control center seems at peace. He finds that the
   navigational caste has no idea of what is going on in the
   rest of the ship and little contact except in emergencies.
   Superman then goes to the main areas of the ship to stop
   the war. The combatants stop long enough to explain that
   they have "divided into nations according to our various
   races and religions. Differences inevitably lead to
   conflict!" and then resume their fighting. He wishes they
   could be persuaded to work together as they did in building
   the ship in the first place--that thought gives him an
   idea. He sends the ship to a suitable, uninhabited planet
   and they disembark taking their personal belongings and the
   useful machinery but leaving the weapons behind. A pleased
   Superman looks on at the aliens who have put violence and
   hate aside to make a new civilization. -- Call no.:
