Synopsis for Espionage Starring Black X: "The Purple Hoods"

Circa probably 1937-Dec: The foreign-sponsored Purple Hoods group (Madame L'Darge, Olav in the construction gang, & others) plots to kill a bunch of U.S. soldiers when the 71st regiment goes marching down a certain piece of road, with a roadside bomb. But the group's leader soon learns that an important meeting has been infiltrated, probably by the Espionage agency, but really because having a group where everybody wears hoods is just asking for this kind of abuse. Anyway the bad guy leader decides to uncover the impostor then bail. That night the Black X, in his brown tuxedo and blue top hat, with black grease paint covering his face, invades the very upscale home of Madame L'Darge, and at gunpoint compels her to call the police, opens her wallsafe AND smashes its lock, and otherwise fake-robbery-izes the place, then flees, leaving her to answer a bunch of embarrassing questions. Then with not so much as a caption's worth of transition, there is a meeting of the Purple Hoods top leadership (one white-haired purple-hatted-but-hoodless boss and 3 hooded underbosses, only one of whom is wearing a brown tuxedo). Black X dramatically unmasks first himself then Morgan of the Army and Willard of the Senate. Morgan tries to shoot Black X but telepathic manservant Batu is already in the next room and has already thrown his knife, non-fatally spoiling his shot, so that's a wrap, right? "Not quite, my monocled friend, not quite." Elderly Boss Guy opens a trap door under Black X & Batu dumping them into a basement that floods during high tide, then leaves them unsupervised and runs off with his pals to make a speedboat getaway. Batu goes into a trance, and whammies some telepathic hoodoo onto the fleeing villains, and only (elderly boss guy) gets away. Black X does some fancy slithering and swimming, and gets out of the basement and into the river, and climbs up a ladder to a wharf, and just then, by absolutely nothing but luck, the boss bad guy's speedboat zooms right past that very ladder, within jumping distance. 24 hours later the still-unidentified boss bad guy is trussed up hand and foot and delivered to the Police Commissioner's home, with a note pinned to his shirt. At story's end, police are on the lookout for a well-dressed burglar known as the Black X. (So life in that particular unnamed city has now gotten more complicated for our hero, theoretically, but Black X's "wanted" status doesn't seem to follow him in future episodes.) Story wraps up "in a fashionable Washington restaurant."

Notes

  • Espionage:
    • As spies are wont to do, Madame L'Darge seems to have later adopted a new identity, becoming the way-more-pronounceable Madame Doom, and returned in Smash Comics #4. The two look, dress, and speak exactly alike, and are both able to charm Black X into allowing them to leave the country un-arrested, and both have "Madame" in their names.
