When an earthquake hits California G-Force is sent to investigate. While they are investigating Zoltar breaks into all communications and declares himself Supreme Commander.

G-Force finds Zoltar's hidden lair and destroys it when the Phoenix transmutes into the Firebird and crashes into it. They think they have killed Zoltar but it is just a Zoltar robot. Of course, the real Zoltar gets away.
