Synopsis for The Spider: "The Monster Men"

One night all of the electrical power in Manhattan, including car batteries, fails at the same time, creating havoc. Then an ominous, opaque, green gas filters up out of the sewers and manholes; people fall down, unconscious or dead. A horde of green monster-men, from beneath the Earth’s crust, each about the size of two men, invades the city, shooting down hundreds of people with blazing green rays. None of them says anything. Tom Hallaway, alias the Spider, dukes it out with the invaders, hand to hand, and takes a lot of lumps but keeps at it, until he sees one monster-man grab a girl and carry her away, down into the city’s sewer system; the Spider pursues them, and kills the monster-man with a spider-seal-tipped arrow. But soon another swarm of them arrives, and this time he’s knocked unconscious.

Hours later, the Spider regains consciousness, in the core of the Earth. He is observed, and mocked, in English, by the leader of the Green Horde, a yellow-skinned giant, who looks a great deal more human than his soldiers do. Tom gets ready to fight him, but he reveals the captured girl, rigged up in a death-trap. According to the leader, the people of New York are mostly only paralyzed; the gas wasn’t fatal. But they all will die in 24 hours if he doesn’t administer an antidote, which only he has. “Your so-called dictators will be mice when they learn that I took New York in 17 minutes!” He claims to have a circle of caverns all over the Earth, to be able to destroy all the cities on Earth with the push of one button, to have element-powered weapons more powerful than any device made by man, and to have a hundred-million-man army, ready to strike. Their brains are all connected to his by cosmic rays and electrical impulses, and he’s here to find out if he can put the brains of upper-world people under his control too. None of this fazes Alias the Spider at all, he wants to fight, bow versus ray-gun, right now.

The leader tries to quick-draw with his ray-gun, but the Spider cuts it out of his hand with one shot. The leader calls a whole lot of Green Horde warriors into the room, but the Spider fights his way free of them and chases the leader into his enormous control room, catches him, beats the crap out of him, then chokes him into revealing the control switch that unparalyzes the people. Then the leader dies, and yes, his brain really was connected to the brains his horde, all of whom now fall down dead in the streets.
