Odakim the Fierce considers himself the rightful Emperor of Japan. He schemes to usurp his cousin's throne by out-performing him martially. After much study, Odakim decides to defeat the U.S.A. by defeating Uncle Sam, and to accomplish that by means of menacing Buddy Smith. Buddy is abducted away to Odakim's base in Manchukuo, and when Uncle Sam pursues them there, he crashes his way into a trap. Odakim momentarily stops Sam with an Electro-Paralysis Ray, then sends in three jujitsu fighters, then seals the room and floods it with Sam and Buddy inside. None of that works, and soon Uncle Sam is beating up Odakim, who dives out a window and escapes in a motorboat, out to the open sea.

Just then, from a nearby U.S. airbase, a squadron of Grumman Avenger torpedo bombers arrives, to attack the Manchukuon outpost. Odakim's speedboat sports a .30-cal. machine gun, and he's able to shoot down one of the U.S. planes, before dying in a hail of machine gun fire.

Synopsis for "The Fighting Bears and the Mechanical Penguins"

Uncle Sam runs to Alaska, with Buddy, and hunts up some Kodiak bears, fistfights them long enough to show them who's boss, then feeds them a whole lot of fish, thus gaining their loyalty. He trains these bears to fight the Japanese, who have arrived at Alaska's shoreline in fake icebergs, concealing heavy artillery. Uncle Sam smashes his way inside one of these batteries and completely disables it, but some enemy troops escape in enclosed motorized capsules. Sam calls in his fast-swimming bears to deal with them. These beasts slash open the capsules like peanut shells and kill the would-be escapees. Meanwhile in an unguarded workshop, Buddy builds about a dozen mechanical swimming exploding penguins, and uses them against a boatload of Japanese commandos. A follow-up attack by Japanese bombers is repulsed by U.S. fighter planes.

Notes

  • Heroic Exploits
    • Tokyo is spelled as "Tokio" in this story's captions and dialogue.
    • Doolittle's military unit, at the time of the raid, is not identified. The USS Hornet, which got Doolittle's bombers within striking range of Japan, is not mentioned in this story. China, where most of Doolittle's planes landed, and Russia, where the other one landed, are also not mentioned in this story. It was published in 1942, and a lot of things were secret, then, that would be public knowledge later; evidently these were some of those.
    • Last page also features a one-panel promo of Lieut. Edward O'Hare.
  • Mongrol Man
    • There are three Mongrol Men, despite the title. These monsters are the third generation of a science project by Jeremiah Korntooth, superhuman in size and strength, and bulletproof. One is killed by lassoing him, by the neck, from an airplane, and hanging him under a waterfall. One sinks in quicksand. The third is swimming in the ocean when a burning fighter plane crashes into him.
    • Uncle Sam's plane is a 2-engine bomber, of no recognizable type, with pre-WWII U.S. military markings and a large white numeral "4" on the fuselage.
  • Odakim the Fierce
    • Tokyo is also spelled as "Tokio" in this story's captions and dialogue.
    • "Okakim" spelled backwards is Mikado.
  • Pootzie the Spy
    • Adolf and Herman talk with katzenjammer accents.
    • Uncle Sam has a disguise-making make-up kit, and can radically alter his appearance. In this story he impersonates Adolf Hitler.
    • At this story's end, Pootzie and his three spy buddies are all safely back in Germany and still at large.
    • Hitler is in his countryside hide-out when Uncle Sam, in a stolen Stuka, drops a bomb on it, and the caption raises the question of whether he survived. But apparently he survived.
  • Also featured in this issue of Uncle Sam was:
