Synopsis for Blackhawk: "The Spawn of the Cobra"

In the aftermath of World War II, the Allied nations collaborated on a project to enclose many major warships in plastic wrapping and store them away, hopefully forever. Instead this "Mummy Fleet" was stolen by a pirate commander called Cobra, who stashed them in a secret harbor, under a seemingly-barren rock island in the Atlantic Ocean. The Blackhawk Squadron detected the stolen fleet's passage, and followed it to the Cobra's base.

Notes

  • Page 4, panel 4, Hendrickson packs no visible handgun, but when the cobra jumps out of the briefcase, he whips out a revolver and kills it in mid-strike.
  • Unnamed top-level Washington Official, to Blackhawk: "We will invest you with complete power and authority to take immediate action! We'll back you to the hilt with all the concentrated power of the International Security Force!"
  • Blackhawk gets head-konked unconscious, for his 26th concusssion,[1] with a rifle stock. Andre gets head-konked unconscious, for at least the 4th time, with a rifle stock.[2] Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
  • Cobra's fleet of stolen warships was moored in a catacomb of vast tunnels under her island. The Blackhawk Squadron's air attack destroyed the entrance to these tunnels. Survival prospects of the fleet, and of Cobra herself, are ambiguous.
