 +  * January 1-5: Dr. Wilfred Doome, a self-proclaimed great scientist, uses a time machine to bring five of the greatest conquerors of all time to the present and engages them to seek out the five rarest metals on Earth, all to help him build a machine that will open the gate to the future. The Seven Soldiers of Victory overhear their plans and plan to stop them. At the U.S.-Canada border, the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy battle Napoleon, who tries to steal a gold shipment. At the Florida Everglades, Green Arrow and Speedy battle Alexander the Great, who tries to steal robots powered by radium, which were invented by scientist Leo Starr. In Alaska, the Shining Knight battles Genghis Khan, who tries to steal a platinum shipment. In South Dakota, the Vigilante and Billy Gunn battle Attila the Hun, who tries to steal Tantalum. At sea, the Crimson Avenger and Wing battle Nero, who tries to seize a shipment of uranium. Regrouping, the Seven Soldiers converge on Dr. Doome'​s tower on Long Island, but Doome escapes into the past. Speedy grabs a time-rod, and the team steps into the time machine, only to arrive in the 12th century B.C. during the siege of Troy, where they meet Ulysses. When Doome returns to the present, Speedy uses the time-rod to return the team there also. Then, when Doome escapes into the future, the time machine blows up, but the team survives.
