Chip Savage has returned to aid his grandfather Doc in stopping the deadly asteroid swarm heading for Earth. Doc asks the older aides to head for the Fortress of Solitude; at the Hidalgo Trading Company, though, they are met by a squad of heavily armed soldiers with orders to capture them. The old aides defeat them in a pitched battle, demonstrating they still have what it takes to be on Doc Savage’s team. The older men arrive at the arctic Fortress and are met by Patricia, joining the adventure for old time’s sake. Meanwhile, Doc sends one of the captive soldiers, under hypnosis, back to his hideout and uses the fax machine there to trace Cordelia Lear’s transmissions to their source. It turns out to be a military base in a remote area of Canada. Doc and Chip enter and set off explosives to create a diversion so they can capture the control center. Doc launches Lear’s missiles at the approaching asteroid swarm just as the aides do the same from the Fortress. The combined firepower ends the threat. Lear arrives and shoots at Doc but Chip takes the bullet for him; Doc manages to escape with the wounded hero. Lear then discovers that a missile silo has been set on overload, and she dies in the blast. Doc and Chip make their peace in the hospital, as all the aides gather around, looking forward to the next adventure.
