Synopsis for Starman: "The Adventure of the Earthquake Terror"

From a secret base in South America, in the “Land Beyond The Clouds”, science-terrorist Captain Vurm has been using advanced equipment to inflict repeated, simultaneous earthquakes, hundreds of miles away, all across America. Vurm is working for some unnamed foreign masters, and his purpose is to make the nation ripe for conquest. FBI Agent Woodley Allen investigates, assisted by Professor Moro. Allen's niece Doris Lee stows away aboard Allen's airplane, which is brought down, in South America, at the "Land Beyond the Clouds". All three of them are captured by Captain Vurm.

Allen calls in Starman, who frees the captives and smashes the Captain's main machinery. Vurm unleashes a monstrous "tigron" on him, unsuccessfully, and uses his back-up earthquake machine to try to kill Starman with a landslide, also to no avail. Starman, Doris, Woodley, and the Professor all escape, but Vurm perishes.

Some jaded, decadent millionaire members of an exclusive sports club undertake some crimes, just for the excitement. They break into Bannerman Laboratories, where they find and steal Rex Tyler's personal stash of Miraclo. Hourman finds out about it and races to the scene, arriving too late to stop the theft, but just in time to get blamed for it by the police.

Hourman gets away from the cops and tracks down the burglars, but one of them has sampled some of the Miraclo, and is extremely strong. Hourman defeats him, and catches the other club members also, making his own innocence clear to the police in the process.

At New York City's swanky Voodoo Club, dancer Fay Descaules gets framed for the murder, by poison, of financier Hector Garnet. Miss Descaules had been shocked and frightened earlier, to see a burning triangle, a Voodoo symbol for murder. Poison is found in the tail of her costume, which throws suspicion onto Fay. Wes Dodds and Dian Belmont involve themselves in the case, and Wes takes Fay back to his townhouse, then calls in his friend, explorer and Voodoo expert Bill Summers, who brings along his friend Pete.

Soon the Sandman pays the club a visit, and there he meets a friend of Fay's a Voodoo witch doctor. He and the houngan return to Dodds' home, and they converse with Fay, Bill, and Pete. Pete turns out to be the killer.
