New Comics 4 saw the start of this story in Federal Men, as Steve stops a foreign spy from infesting the reservoir with a bacteria, and moves on to a plot to torpedo the president’s yacht by submarine.

In New Comics 6 (July 36)  it starts to really kick into high gear as giant tanks invade Washington D.C. None of the other series have shown anything so wild or dynamic as these pages. Siegel and Shuster are taking this strip away from the world of the FBI and forcing it toward the superhero universe they are chomping at the bit to create.

In the following issue Steve takes down the villains manning the tanks with a radium-gas bomb, and his superiors think the case is over, but Steve correctly believes the masterminds have not been caught.
