Synopsis

The Challengers track Mastermind and his gang with Cosmo's alien senses. But Mastermind’s car morphs into a rocket-car and blasts off. An alien, D’Jann, saved their lives with a “substance converter”. D’Jann seeks his lost pet J’Suna (Cosmo). Mastermind convinces D’Jann the Challengers are criminals. D’Jann sends a giant arrow and giant marbles at the Challengers. Our heroes find Cosmo is oddly distracted. He sniffs his former master just ahead! Mastermind substance-converts the Challengers. Rocky becomes a flame-man, Prof a cloud-man, Red a wind-man, and Ace a two-dimensional man. They’re locked in a cell, but work together to fan Rocky’s flame and melt the bars. The Challengers flatten Mastermind’s gang. Cosmo gets clunked by a falling beam. D’Jann feigns outrage, grabs back the substance converter, and stops the criminals. Cosmo told him the truth! D’Jann decides Cosmo’s powers are needed here on Earth, so presents him to the Challengers, then leaves in his rocket ship.
