DOCTOR SOLAR, MAN OF THE ATOM (1962) (#1-27) (GOLD KEY) #20 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom (1962) Gold Key #20
"Atomic Nightmares" From the action-packed painted cover to the very last panel, this adventure of the Man of the Atom ranks as one of his most thrilling and strangest. Our story begins with Dr. Solar strapped to a chair, his incredible atomic power being drawn off to power Nuro's vast underground complex. Under the gleeful stare of Nuro and his cyborg creation Orun, Dr. Solar is paralyzed while his energy fuels evil machines and criminal endeavors. Yet even Nuro's machine can't handle the immensity of Solar's energy, and soon there's more power than even a dozen generators could manufacture running full out.

The passing of a thundercloud gives Dr. Solar his chance for escape. Reaching out with his power over atomic reactions, Solar mentally causes the thunder-head to release a massive lightning bolt yanking him from his chair and high into the atmosphere. As Dr. Clarkson and Gail watch on in a nearby small aircraft, Solar is jettisoned into the nighttime sky while his captors barely escape their exploding lair. Recuperating later at his Atom Valley laboratory, Solar slips into unconsciousness. But while asleep, the hero's supercharged body draws on his dreams and creates from the molecules of the air one incredible menace after another. These gigantic energy-beasts are drawn from Solar's own fevered nightmares and don't easily return to the nothingness from which they were born! Also, thrill to Professor Harbinger's "Amazing Humans".
