Hank spots "The man who threw the bomb!" The boys follow into an abandoned building, but are trapped. Mobsters plan to assassinate Judge Hall. Don wishes for super-strength, or power... A "strange, disembodied" voice offers the bickering boys power. Hank gets an angry red-white hawk costume. Don gets a baby-blue dove outfit, and doesn't want it! "Whenever injustice strikes" they need only call the names "Hawk" and "Dove", but the powers will fade when not needed. Smashing free, they run, swim, and climb the hospital walls to save their dad.

Synopsis
Costumed, Hawk and Dove burst in on mobsters come to kill Judge Hall in the hospital. Hawk breaks heads, kicks, and tosses felons. Dove tries lectures and reason - and ducking - and pitches out a window to snag a flagpole. Dove returns just in time to deflect "Boss's" gun from killing Judge Hall. Judge Hall is grateful, but wants their names. "Just Call us The Hawk and the Dove!" Their costumes melt away. The judge tells reporters he cannot condone the heroes' actions, and they should turn themselves in! The boys exit, bickering.

Indexer Notes

A 2/3 page promo for The Hawk and the Dove new magazine included at the end of the original printing has been reduced to the first quarter in this Australian reprint. This removes all the material promoting the new series and looks like a closing panel.

Indexer Notes

This is a reprint of the first Metamorpho story after the series was cancelled at Metamorpho #17 (March-April 1968). Stories then continued as a backup in Action Comics. The text at the end of this Australian reprint is changed to read "in the very next issue of 'World's Finest' Comics!"
