Synopsis for "The Man Who Stalked the Spectre"

The Spectre's activities have been noticed by newspaper journalist Earl Crawford, who is intrigued by the number of mysterious murders, disappearances and strange events surrounding criminals of the city. Crawford decides to investigate, despite the dissent from his editor and he goes undercover as Clark Kent to the New York City Police Department, where he is assigned to go along Detective Jim Corrigan, who reluctantly accepts "Kent's" presence.

During the capture of one of the crooks, Corrigan suddenly disappears and Kent is intrigued when the only thing found is a miniature statue of the criminal. When Crawford drops by the Police Department, he learns the possible whereabouts of a wanted crook. Crawford goes looking for the criminal, as to warn him of the mysterious presence that is killing criminals in the city.

Crawford finds the criminal's hideout, but as he is trying to warn the crook, The Spectre appears and turns the crook into a block of wood before he puts the wood on the saw, leaving only pieces of the criminal. Crawford is shocked to find out his deductions of a mysterious being attacking crooks is real, but he is more disgusted with the whole event, and demands an explanation of The Spectre, who simply leaves the place and Crawford is left wondering what to do next.
