Gilday, Greg. Martians attack the U.S. from a dumb-bell shaped spaceship, sinking surface ships and laughing off the attempts by American military planes to shoot it down. The only person who has any idea how to stop them is elderly, dying doctor Greg Gilday, who has invented an “atomic supervitalizer.” As he dies he accidentally falls into the path of the supervitalizer and switches it on. This results in his being made much younger and given super-strength. He gives the same powers to his former nurse, Joan, and together they defeat the Martians and then stop a war in South America.
