When Adam Strange beams to Rann, Alanna tells him that aliens demand Rann's surrender. At dawn, Adam leads an army against the aliens, but they use their vacuumizers to turn the army into gas. When Adam materializes on Earth, he has nine days to form a plan. Returning to Rann, Adam finds Ranagar gone, but the Ranagarians restored. Realizing the vaccumizers only affect one element at a time, Adam has the Ranagarians cover themselves in several different metals so they can get close enough to the aliens to defeat them in hand-to-hand combat. The aliens surrender and leave without their weapons.
