Synopsis for Adam Strange: "Space-Island of Peril"
In a lab in Darwin, Australia, Adam Strange watches a demonstration of a 2000 year old seed budding to life in a jar of water. Amazed by the discovery, Adam leaves in order to intercept the Zeta-Beam that's scheduled to hit the Australian Outback. Arriving on Rann, Adam is greeted once more by Alanna who is riding a new species of bird. Alanna (giving Adam a new ray gun, his old one being destroyed last issue) explains that her father found an egg on the planet Anthorann and brought it back to hatch, the bird she is riding was what hatched from the egg. She then takes Adam on more sight seeing, taking him to the Dancing Waters of Athline and then stopping for a picnic.
This picnic is interrupted when a Palador attacks, Adam attempts to keep it at bay when suddenly Alanna's bird undergoes a transformation and changes into a humanoid being that fights the Palador to a standstill. This new creature introduces itself as a member of the Corytrix race. He explains this intentions are to destroy the entire planet. He then reveals that his species has a repeating life cycle that is activated by heat, going from egg, to bird creature, to a humanoid form which they can go through over and over, getting a new lease on life each time, to destroy planets at their leasure.
In attempting to stop the Corytrix, the creature uses the gem on it's forehead to turn Adam's ray gun into stone. With the threat neutralized, the Coryrix goes about fusing powerful bombs into Rann's surface. When nothing seems to stop the creature, Adam tricks it onto a stretch of land which he knocks out of Rann's orbit and into space.
With the creature trapped on the piece of land, Adam keeps it occupied while it travels closer and closer to a near-by sun. He pushed Alanna off the newly formed space rock, and continues to battle the creature. Confident that he can hold out until the Zeta-Beam wears off, leaving the monster to perish by itself when the Zeta-Beam wears off.
