Original Publisher


Created by

Dick Giordano


Space freighters using the passage between Mercury and the Sun to Mars get to the red planet are disappearing. The Space Rangers become involved, following the Space Officer Command Ship with Commodore Rex Clive at the helm. Adjutant Speed Lansing flies his Scoutcraft SL, as the ships hid behind a massive freighter.

A group of fighter ships attack from the surface of Mercury. They are confronted by the Space Rangers's Scoutcraft, but the shell of the Mercurian ships is impervious to the Scoutcraft weapons. To manage the issue, the Space Rangers take up an effective tactic of ramming the Pirate ships. They capture and interrogate Shangor, the leader of the pirates. The pirate ships are constructed with "thermallium", a heat-resistant metal found on Mercury.
