Young Clark Savage, Jr. was placed by his father in the hands of experts, training him to be an avenger for justice. The training supervisor, Dr Gunter Asch, stole Savage, Sr’s theories and left to create a rival program, which would have repercussions decades later…. July, 1936: Doc’s aides receive a visit from a Brenda Sinclair, distraught over her brother’s kidnapping and seeking the aid of Doc Savage. Costumed thugs break in, subdue the aides with gas and carry off Brenda. Her notebook, left behind, direct them to a meeting at an abandoned amusement park, where Brenda and her men spring the trap so elaborately set and capture the aides. Doc Savage arrives and uses a super-sonic whistle to subdue their foes, who kill themselves with poison gas to avoid capture. To throw his enemies off the trail, he releases a report that he and his men were also killed, and visits his cousin Pat, with the information he’d uncovered: Brenda Sinclair was actually SS Agent Brigette Schuller, involved with Nazi Operation “Victorious Peace” or “Siegfried,” which recalls for Doc and his aides their days in the Great War…. Doc and his friends first met in the German prison camp Loki, where Dr. Asch had a secret lab, working on creating supermen like Siegfried. When Doc and Asch spy each other, the scientist orders Doc's immediate execution but Doc manages to elude the firing squad by breaking through the ground into the prisoners’ escape tunnel where they rescue Monk and Ham from the lab and Doc confronts Siegfried. The friends escape to safety while Asch and his creation are thought to be killed in an explosion. Back in 1936, Doc and his men cause a sensation by arriving at the Berlin Olympics, but Pat is also there, disguised as Brigette Schuller. Later Doc’s aides and Pat are trapped by Siegfried and brought to the Olympic Stadium, where Asch explains the scheme to replace visiting dignitaries with Nazi doubles. Doc arrives and does battle with his Nazi counterpart; when Doc gains the upper hand and Siegfried pleads for mercy, an outraged Asch shoots his creation who falls into the flames, then plummets onto his creator, immolating them both. Doc and his men free the imprisoned dignitaries and make their getaway before Hitler discovers what has happened.
