Karabi's plans were described in some detail by Batman in "Zero Hour for Earth!" in Batman #167 (Nov. 1964). Talking to Robin, Batman compares Nazis to a group formed by the villain Karabi (panels 3 through 6 on page 13): "Each scrap of information I've collected means nothing by itself -- but together they add up to Karabi's insane plan for world power! Karabi intends to secretly fire a nuclear missile from country A [actual name not revealed for security reasons] to country B! He knows B will accuse A of aggression -- and war will break out . . . The eruption of war will only be the beginning! Like a chain reaction, it will inevitably spread, involving more countries, nations . . . even the United States1 Then Karabi intends to form a group of malcontents that will form the nucleus of a band like Hitler's S.S. Elite -- and with them, will try to seize as much power as he can!"
