Synopsis for "The Human Bombs and... the Spectre"

Gwendolyn Sterling is kidnapped by a mad scientist, who has created a machine to mind control people. Using his machine, the scientist sends several victims to commit crimes on the city with bombs strapped unto them. After a brutal demonstration, the crimes become successful and draw the attention of Police Detective Jim Corrigan, who is also investigating the disappearance of Gwen.

Eventually, Gwen is sent to committ crimes and she is spotted by Corrigan, who notices that she is being mind-controlled and he follows her back to the mad scientist's lair as The Spectre. Once inside, Spectre confronts the scientist, who unleashes his mind controlled minions against him. Spectre easily breaks the mind-control over the victims and tells them to go away to safety as he tracks down the master criminal. The mad scientist has locked himself in his personal chamber, where he intends to use an electricity projector to attack The Spectre. His attack is futile and the mad scientist tries to lure Spectre into a trap by opening a trapdoor into a crocodile pit. Of course, the plan fails and The Spectre decides to give the man a taste of his own evil, by mind-controlling him and making him walk into his own crocodile pit, where he is devoured by the hungry beasts.
