Plot

After those of the cemetery, it is the "preserved" Golden Age superheroes who are resurrected at the Victory Museum by Black Scarab and his toxic fluid. They will want to go after Marshal Law whom they believe is a Nazi super soldier. But the latter has also much to do with a  "living dead" girlfriend.
