Beware the Savage Skies
Ted Knight, Starman, is about to formally open an observatory. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and he contacts an old friend.
We'll get a lot of Jay Garrick in this issue but Ted will stay in his civvies - so no Starman.
Shortly after Jay leaves, Ted investigates; we are made aware that Ted Knight is acting under duress.
That's right, the bad guy will remain a mystery for a time.
The Flash makes his way to Boulder Dam and encounters some kind of energy creature.
Not only is this creature made of electricity but it eats electricity. The question is what can the Flash's speed do against such an elemental? Flash disarms it by creating a tornado.
Jay toys around with the creature
The Flash drops his guard a bit too much.
A much more focused Flash successfully evades the creature.
The men in the dam - the dam men - give Flash some cable which manages to hold the creature.
Better than the cable, Flash is given some good advice.
Once the behemoth is grounded the battle is done.
Back to the distraught Ted Knight, we now know the identity of one of his captors.
That's Solomon Grundy.
