Billy "Big Bang" Blitz is a sergeant
in S.A.B.R.E. (Special Assault Brigade for Real Emergencies). He and Mary, a fellow operative, are recalled from leave to deal with the kidnapping of Professor Plum, creator of a Doomsday Bomb capable of destroying the world
. Bang soon encounters Tom Guycot, the mastermind behind the abduction, and he learns that the Doomsday Bomb is controlled by six medallions
which have been distributed among the governors of Demonhead. While retrieving one of the medallions, he meets a captured hermit who teaches Bang various force powers. While retrieving the searching rest of the medallions, Bang repeatedly experiences strange mental discomfort.
Bang later discovers that the discomfort is a failed attempt at mind control by a demon trapped beneath the mountain at Demonhead's north end. It later manages to control Michael, Bang's ally, and is released. It kills Tom Guycot and steals his medallion. Bang learns from the Hermit that the demon can only be destroyed with the Sword of Apollo. Upon defeating the demon and recovering Guycot's medallion, Bang attempts to rescue Professor Plum, though the Doomsday Bomb is already complete. The bomb turns out to be set up by aliens, who created humanity 1,000 years ago, having grown disappointed with mankind's destructive tendencies. The attempt to use it to hasten the end of the world, but it is diffused by the medallions. Bang goes home with the Hermit to reunite with Mary and receive congratulations from his commander.
