Episode Summary

Atomic Peril
From Republic's press release: "Lenotto is sent to the Earth by the Ruler to help Dr. Varney in destroying Commando Cody. First they try to gain Cody's confidence by introducing him to a new element. When given the opportunity they try to steal Commando Cody's rocketship and in the ensuing scuffle Lenotto is killed with his own gun."

Unable to penetrate the cosmic dust blanket with his warships, the Ruler sends an agent Lenato inside a small missle headed for earth. Lenato carries Thenustrium: a new element developed on Planet X. Lenato tells Dr. Varney that Thenustrium is similar to uranium, but is easier to control. Lenato and Dr. Varney poses as scientists who have discovered the new element. They are able to get into Commander Cody's lab. Cody examines the element and realizes that combining it with uranium will allow him to construct a rocket with more power and range. When Cody leaves, Lenato and Varney kidnap Joan and Ted. They steal Cody's rocket and fly away. Lenato and Varney discuss their plans aboard the rocket. Cody overhears them using a two-way radio. Cody intercepts the flight before it leaves Earth and takes Lenato and Varney into custody.moreless
