Synopsis for The Doll Man: "Back From the Dead"

A monocle-wearing protection-racketeer named Gat Granet frames a poor sap named Tim Shean for murder. Tim is hanged for the crime, but the Doll Man rigs the execution by slipping Tim a pill, his newest invention, which induces rigor mortis, instantly, in a living person, and makes the heartbeat imperceptible. Dr. Roberts shows up to claim Tim's "body," and they whisk him back to the lab and revive him. Then the Doll Man goes after Granet's organization, then after Granet, punches him out and abducts him to an old waterfront building, at midnight, where he and about twenty recruited crime victims stage a very tense psychodrama of a mock trial. Granet is driven mad by a jury of hobos and the sight of a still-living Shean, and he confesses. Then the cops show up and take him away.

Synopsis for The Voice: "The Solving of the World's Greatest Counterfeit Case"

As an "invisible detective," Mr Elixir dba The Voice kept both the public and its criminals off his trail with a combination of misdirection, trick microphones, ventriloquism, stage magic, and hypnotism. In his second case, he was none too discreet about his double identity, indeed he brazenly took access to a bank speaker system to send an alert, as The Voice, one which led the secret crooks among the bank's management to make a critical mistake, which in turn exposed an in-house counterfeiting operation.
Mr. Elixir loses his strength if he gets too hungry, but he always carries some herbs, so to kidnap him and leave him in a deathtrap (say, tied to a chair in a basement with a dynamite stick thrown into it) you have to catch him at just the right moment, which the bad guys in this story have the good luck to do, but because they make the classic badguy blunder of failing to observe and verify their deathtrap's effectiveness, they lose anyway.

Notes

  • Somewhere on Luzon, Spin Shaw's adversaries Princess Kahaina and her chiefs of the Cherubus have a hideout, in a cave, under a volcano. Geology on Earth-X is very different from what we're accustomed to on Earth-Prime.
  • Mr. Elixir now, in his 2nd episode, wears a monocle. Between him and Black X, this makes two Quality Comics mystery-man good guys who wear monocles.
  • Mr. Elixir likes to publicly lift a car over his own head, just to watch people gaping at him. It's not clear that he really cares about having a "secret identity."

Trivia

  • No trivia.
