Buzzard. Flash, the son of a police chief, is appointed by the Mayor of a crime-ridden big city to become the Buzzard, the “nemesis of the underworld.” The Mayor gives Flash a gadget which changes his appearance to that of the Buzzard, but which grants him no other powers. However, the Mayor also gives Flash a disintegrator ray gun, and between the fear that the sight of the Buzzard causes, the ray gun, the Buzzard’s clawed gloves, and Flash’s athleticism as a college football player, those are enough for Flash to be an effective crime-fighter. In his lone appearance the Buzzard catches a killer on the loose.
