Hawkman and Hawkwoman are captured by Sanballa's minions, who have already captured Shanna. Adam Strange manages to trigger the transportation effect and appears on Earth in Mongolia, where he soon meets an old priest named Father Pierre and his ally, a teenager named Richard Grey, also known as the Black Condor (the Earth-1 version of the Earth-X hero). Together, Adam Strange, Black Condor II, and the Hawks defeat Sanballa (who suddenly dies of old age) and free Shanna. Hawkwoman promises to introduce Black Condor II to Captain Comet.
