This serial recycles the rocket-powered flying suit from Republic's earlier 1949 serial King of the Rocket Men. The main character, Commando Cody, has a rocket-powered flying suit and a rocketship capable of reaching the Moon. When the U. S. finds itself under attack from a mysterious force that can wipe out entire military bases and industrial complexes, Cody surmises (correctly) that the Earth is under attack from its own Moon. He then flies his rocket there and confronts the Moon's dictator, Retik, who boldly announces his plans to both conquer Earth and then move the Moon's entire population here using spaceships.
