The story begins with Captain Laserbeam helping 3/4 of The First Family--FLOTUS, Little Jackie, and Steve-Steve--take down the Beaknapper while patriarch Professor President is off campaigning. Once the noise-hating menace is nabbed, Little Jackie starts bickering with her mother and little brother Steve-Steve. Captain Laserbeam offers to take Jackie to the Adventurekateer Clubhouse to meet some kids her own age, and FLOTUS agrees.

Captain Laserbeam and Little Jackie show up just as board-game wiz Omar is about to beat Lynn in the pleventh level of the Captain Laserbeam board and card game. Introductions are made, and Lynn immediately clashes with Jackie, perceiving her political status and superpowers to be unfair to the proletariat, or something. She cites the source of her strong liberal views as her history teacher, Mr. Blum. Omar mentions casually that Mr. Blum had been involved in an industrial accident at the Fossil Fuel Processing Plant, and is presumed dead--though a blurry photograph of a mutant monstrosity was taken moments later. Little Jackie's atomic sense of worry jangles at that news, and she and Captain Laserbeam intuit that a mutated Mr. Blum probably would have kidnapped Professor President. Omar and Lynn confirm that that would be entirely in character. Jackie and Laserbeam jet off.

Meanwhile, Professor President is indeed held hostage by Mr. Blum , now half dinosaur, in a classroom at Eli Whitney Middle School. The two argue politics for a few minutes until Captain Laserbeam and Little Jackie burst upon the scene. Laserbeam dubs Blum with a nom-de-villany, the Hysterosaur, as Little Jackie atomizes her father's binding. Professor President reveals that he could have escaped at any time, but thought that rational discussion with Blum was the best course of action. He offers the help of his super-scientist son to attempt to return mutated teacher normal again, and Blum agrees.

FLOTUS and Steve-Steve show up to rescue Professor President even more, but upon their arrival, FLOTUS's electrical field mutates Blum further. In the throes of transformation, he warns them off. Jackie wishes to atomize him to neutralize the threat, but Captain Laserbeam thinks fast and freeze-lasers the reptile man, putting him to sleep. Professor President declares his intention to bring Blum back to Steve-Steve's lab and promises Captain Laserbeam a medal for his efforts.
