Synopsis for Legion of Super-Heroes: "The Super-Villains of All Ages!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #314.

Posing as an applicant for potential Legion membership, the evil Alaktor manages to take x-ray photos of every device within Legion headquarters. Sneaking back into their base, Alaktor steals one of the Legion's time bubbles in hopes of recruiting histories most evil criminals. The Legion stumbles upon Alaktor's plot and try to stop him across different periods. However, Alaktor manages to avoid capture while recruiting Nero, John Dillinger, and Adolf Hitler from history and bring them to the 30th Century.

With a mind swap device, Alaktor manages to switch the minds of Hitler, Dillinger, and Nero into the bodies of Superboy, Mon-El and Ultra-Boy. The three then turn against Alaktor and decide to commit crimes across the universe for their own gain. The Legion tries to stop them, but in the bodies of their near indestructible friends, this proves to the easier said than done. However, the evil and opportunistic natures of Hitler, Dillinger and Nero get the better of them and all three knock each other out using the weaknesses their stolen super-bodies are vulnerable too. This allows the Legion to gather them up, and restore their friends minds back into their own bodies, return the historical figures to their own times and undo the damage they had done in the 30th Century.

This story is reprinted from Smash Comics #17.

Happy Terrill investigates some ship sinkings, suspecting Dock Commissioner Jennings of being in on the mischief (which he is). By following the commissioner, the Ray is able to learn that a clarinetist named Stradivous, operating at a remote lighthouse, is using hypnotic music and conventional radio waves to mentally control first the radiomen then the crews of the targeted cargo ships. The Ray saves a ship loaded with gold from crashing, by turning off its engines, then, using his powers in an innovative new way, un-hypnotizing the crew. Then he visits the lighthouse hideout of the crooks, and gets captured, but Stradivous has carelessly left the transmitter on, and his music draws a police boat to the lighthouse.
