Synopsis for "The Man Who Collected Blackhawks"

A criminal scientist invents a Diminishing Ray and steals an armored car and a cargo plane. The Blackhawks almost catch him, but he shrinks them to doll size, and captures them. He takes them back to his base, and calls in his underworld friends, to auction off the Blackhawks. While he's doing that, the Blackhawks use their belt radios, and a full-size hand-gun, to escape from their glass containers, and a melee ensues. The Blackhawks get control of the Diminishing Ray and regain their old sizes, then capture Zaroc and his pals, and confiscate his Diminishing Ray.
