Synopsis for "The Coming of the Khan"Edit
Bucky and Toro are playing catch on the streets of New York when they inadvertently bump into Japanese spy known as the Khan. The Khan is furious at being disrupted and blows his cover by attacking Bucky, who changes into his costume and summons the other Young Allies to come to his aid. After a brief scuffle, the Khan escapes when Toro begins using his flame to turn the odds in the Allies' favor. At his secret hideout, Khan sends one of his minions to report to their other hideout to tell his other men to prepare for their bid to take over the United States. This minion is spotted by the Young Allies, and he allows them to follow him back to Khan's hideout. Once there, the minion warns Khan of the Young Allies presence and the youths are easily captured and brought up to Khan's torture chamber.
Even though Toro has used up his flame for the time being the youths fight back until their backs are up against a ledge that leads to a river down below. Bucky orders the Allies to jump and they all pretend to have drowned, and overhear Khan talk about his plot to take over America by invading Alaska. They arrive too late to stop them from escaping in a car. With Toro too wet to fly after them, they borrow some horses and follow after the spies. The trail takes them to a rail yard where they learn from a conductor that Khan and his men boarded a train headed for Canada. The youths take the next train across the Canadian border, catching up with Khan and his men. With his flame totally rejuvenated, Toro uses it against the spies but Khan douses his flame with his asbestos lined cape. They flee into a nearby marsh believing the Allies would die if they followed them in. Bucky and Toro argue over going into the swamp, and Bucky tells the Allies to put it to a vote. Most vote for Bucky and they soon enter into the marsh despite Toro's reservations. They soon lose the spies due to the fact that Khan had a plane stashed in the marsh to fly the rest of the way to Alaska.
Lost in the marsh the Young Allies slog on as Toro berates Bucky for his poor decision making. They eventually get too hired and pass out in the swamps. But fortune smiles upon them and the group are picked up by a passing plane that takes them to a hospital in the Yukon. Coming around 24 hours later, they rush out of the hospital and buy the cheapest car they can find so they can drive the rest of the way to Alaska. Unfortunately for them, the used car salesman is an agent of Khan who alerts his master of the Young Allies continued pursuit. A group of Japanese soldiers attempt to stop the Young Allies, and they are forced to stop and fight them. Although the Allies give a good fight, they soon become overpowered when Toro exhausts his flame powers once again and they are taken prisoner. They are taken to Khan's secret underground aerodrome.
There, Khan has the youths tied to a wall and has a tank remotely piloted to smash into them. By this time Toro's flame replenishes itself and he breaks free and takes control of the tank. Khan and his minions leave the base in order to begin their invasion and the Young Allies follow after them in the tank. Rushing to the military camp nearby, Bucky and the Young Allies warn the soldiers of the coming Japanese attack. The Young Allies lend a hand in fighting off the coming air raid. When Toro's flame runs out again, the group rushes to an ammo depot to get guns. There they are confronted by Khan who gets them at gun point. Before the madman can fire the depot is hit by a missile and is blown up.
The Young Allies survive thanks to debris falling in the right place. Pulling themselves out of the wreckage they spot a secret tunnel opening up out of the ground. They keep the emerging Japanese soldiers at bay long enough for military soldiers to come and fight them back. When a machine gunner is shot dead, Bucky mans the gun and begins mowing down Japanese soldiers while Toro (his flame renewed once more) flies over the water and is shocked to see a fleet of Japanese ships heading toward the mainland. He uses his flame powers to write a massive SOS signal alerting American ships in the area to come and aid in fighting off the attack.
Khan has also survived the attack and runs to an unmanned cannon hoping to destroy American ships with their own weapons. Spotted by the Young Allies, Bucky jumps him and he is soon joined by his fellow Allies who also rush the Japanese spy, forcing off a cliff to his death. Soon after Khan's death the American soldiers succeed in fighting off their invaders. While Bucky and Toro bicker over their differences during the whole adventure they are met by General Peters, head of the north army. He tells thanks the boys for a job well done and when Bucky and Toro apologize for fighting in front of him, he tells them that all that matters is that when their country needed them most they were able to put aside their differences and work together.
