The Black Dragon and his Deaglos (bird-men) are foes of Captain Battle. He is "the last word in evil sorcery, bewitches all prisoners into these giant Deaglos. In his feudal castle in Asiatic mountains, this incarnation of evil rules as an absolute tyrant. He chafes at any form of freedom for others, hence his sworn enmity against all democracies. The Asian powers are but a front for him and having failed miserably to even dent our cousin's navy, he is taking a hand by sending a division of Deaglos. The Black Dragon is a normal looking man in a red robe and skull cap. Captain Battle discovers the Deaglos can be killed simply by radio beams, but the Black Dragon escapes.
