Multi-Man can now change forms at will with the help of a special element. He turns into an energy being, which draws the attention of the Challengers. He changes into a floating moon-man and a sponge-man to evade capture by Ace and Rocky, who are caged by the henchmen. With his new abilities, Multi-Man plans to gain control of Earth. Later, Red and June free their friends, but Multi-Man takes off in his energy form. He blasts Prof out of a helicopter, but the brainy Chall splashes Multi-Man with an antidote, sending the villain crashing into a mountain, and causing him to lose his memory.
