The Secret Six are caught up in a plot by an unfriendly nation to steal the plans for a new bomber being developed by the Department of Defense. During this adventure, August explains why he is personally involved, and how Mockingbird saved his life.

Notes

The introductory panel of this story has been changed to refer to a reprint of Secret Six #1 in Superman Presents World's Finest Comic #128 (this previous name for this series). However, the story was in the first issue of the renamed series, actually The Flash #128.

Notes

This image is based on the back cover of 100-Page Super Spectacular DC-15 (Pencils and Inks: Nick Cardy). Part of the "A" symbol on Aquman's belt has been left on Superboy's costume, even though other elements have been drawn in. At the time this advertisement first appeared, Superboy was appearing in All Star Adventure Comic.
