Wolfman, Swan and Chiaramonte conclude Superman’s two-part battle with the H.I.V.E. in Action 533 (July 1982).


While Superman follows the fake information fed to Lois Lane, and protects S.T.A.R. Labs, the H.I.V.E. pull off their real plan, capturing Jimmy Olsen by stealing the entire train car he is in.


Jimmy’s signal watch, which is not used nearly as much as it had been in the 60s, comes in handy in this story, as it gets Superman there just in time.


Lois is not completely off the hook.  The H.I.V.E.member she impersonated in the previous issue comes looking for trouble.  Superman cannot get to her in time, he is busy rescuing Jimmy.  But Lois proves capable of taking down her would-be killer herself.


Rozakis, Saviuk and Chiaramonte bring Air Wave in for the conclusion of the Atom’s nuclear Curacao vacation. Now that the Atom has stopped the bombers, who have been killed by their leader by remote control, he tracks the signal to Dallas.


Coincidentally, Jack Jordan was also on the trail of the mastermind, although his attempt to disguise himself was pretty lame, and didn’t work.


Air Wave really gets to be the hero of this tale, and even gets to fly the Atom back to Curacao.
