In 1952 the peaceful republic of Borgavia was attacked by electrically-powered hoodlums clad in medieval-style plate armor. The invaders were bulletproof and armed with electrical projectors. Borgavia runs on hydroelectric power from a large dam, and the engineer of that construction project, Boris Galub, had defected to the Communists, built the powered armored suits, and supervised the invasion.
President Nigel Derek called for help from the Blackhawks, and more gunfire, with heavier ammunition, was applied; this was effective. Boris Galub was almost captured alive but stumbled while fleeing and fell off his own dam.
