Planning to destroy them as the Silver Ghost, Van Zandt transforms Phantom Lady, Doll Man, and the Black Condor into silver, then blackmails Uncle Sam, the Human Bomb, and the Ray into being his unwilling pawns to terrorize New York City. The Silver Ghost, claiming to be descended from the family that originally owned Manhattan, demands the evacuation of New York City and implicates the Freedom Fighters as his allies. When Uncle Sam learns that the Silver Ghost plans to kill people, he and the others turn on him and defeat the villain, then the Human Bomb learns the technological secret behind his Midas touch and transforms the three silvery heroes back to normal.
