Synopsis for Hercules: "In the Asylum"

Two creeps sneak into a room where Joe Hercules is sleeping, and use a hypodermic needle to inject him with an extremely strong dose of dope, carry him away to the tallest skyscraper in town, go to the roof, and toss him off it. He hits the sidewalk, still asleep, and remains so until hours later, when traffic noise and an angry cop wake him up, and the cop takes him downtown to see the judge. Joe complains that some persistent nuisance has been trying to kill him for four nights now (dropping him off the George Washington Bridge, running over him with a steam roller, dropping a boulder on his head, and now this thing with the skyscraper). The judge quietly decides that Joe is crazy and two burly bailiffs sneak up with a straightjacket and put it on him. Joe busts out of the straightjacket, and gradually starts to become annoyed, as at least three more cops run into the room and try to fight him. The cops adopt a more polite tone and Joe allows himself to be handcuffed and led to a waiting police car, supposedly on his way to jail, but instead he’s delivered to a large country mansion, and shown to his own padded room. The escorting cop has lost the key to the handcuffs, but Joe helpfully busts them to bits, then settles down for his first good night’s sleep in five days, he hopes.

Meanwhile in a cheap transient hotel (Hobbs’ Inn) on the outskirts of town, four gangsters are gloating about how they’ve finally gotten Hercules out of their way so they can go ahead with their big job, except wait, their associate Mug Mullin has warned them that the cops are suspicious, so they still need to be careful. That very night, the big job has gone sour, and the police are very noisily chasing the bad guys right past the asylum where Joe is, and the constant shooting eventually wakes him up and upsets him. Hercules bursts through the brick wall of his second-story room, leaps to the ground, and sprints in pursuit of the speeding cars. The bad guys are doing 90 mph when he catches them, lifts their open-top car, and shakes out all four of them. He wants some answers, so he crushes the car in his bare hands, then grabs one guy by the head; soon he knows the score, that these creeps have busted the gas and water mains in Hillberg , to lay the town open for looting. He ties them to a tree and runs to the town, gets into the utility tunnels, and makes extremely rough emergency repairs to the city’s water main. Gas is everywhere and a lot of citizens are overcome by it, but Joe is unaffected, and eventually it dissipates, allowing regular work crews to have access. Joe returns to his four prisoners, finds out where their leader is, then picks them all up and carries them there. The front desk girl alerts the crime boss to Joe’s arrival, and he pulls a pistol and shoots at him, from fairly close range, with no effect. Soon all five bad guys are in the same courtroom, facing the same judge who had Hercules committed earlier; Joe has no hard feelings about it.

Synopsis for G-5 Super Agent: "Sir Thornley, Spy"

Amid the strange security of an underground night-club in bomb-scarred London, G-5 is introduced by his friend Lord Charleton, to his friend Sir Thornley, who is bald and wears a monocle. G-5 smokes a cigarette as he tries to recall where he’s seen this guy before. Then it’s time to close the club and adjourn to the shelter’s dormitories; G-5 goes to bed in his tuxedo, but can’t sleep. During the night Sir Thornley gets up and sneaks over toward Lord Charleton’s cot (Charleton also is still in his tux). G-5 yanks Thornley up short, but in a very brief scuffle, Thornley gets away, stealing a capsule from around Charleton’s throat in the process. He escapes up the elevator, after shooting the operator in cold blood, he reaches street level and is gone, with the key to some important state papers. G-5 decides to intercept him at his likely destination, Lord Charleton’s house, but just as he arrives there a time bomb explodes. Some walls cave in, and G-5 searches the smoking debris very carefully, until he finds the dead Sir Thornley, whom he now recognizes as Herr Von Libbtrop, Deutschland’s best agent. He goes through his pockets, and finds some notes, which soon lead to the East End address of Libbtrop’s hideout. G-5 leads a squad of Tommies there, and kills at least one more spy, then enjoys a cigarette as he breaks the fourth wall, looks right at the reader, and delivers the puzzling remark quoted above.

Synopsis for Neon the Unknown: "All Quiet at Gibraltar"

One day in North Africa, Tom Corbet’s old Foreign Legion buddies are reminiscing about what a kidder Tom had been, back in the day, before he’d gotten killed. Suddenly just like that, Neon the Unknown is in the room, and lets them know who he really is. They’re astounded and very pleased. He hears about a rumor of a tunnel to Gibralter, from a secret temple in Morocco. Tom is technically a deserter, and avoids his unit’s pompous commanding officer, by vanishing, only to reappear in an unnamed coastal town, where he swiftly but mercifully knocks a local man unconscious and steals his outer clothes, to conceal his distinctive Neon costume. Ineptly at first, he poses as a pilgrim to seek the secret temple. He’s detected and gets jumped by two real pilgrims, but after he beats them both up he learns that they’re not so real either; they wear uniforms and pack sidearms under their robes. After a brief minaret-top questioning session, he learns the location, then tosses the informer to a safe landing in a palm tree. After he has bluffed his way into the secret temple, with a large number of other silent pilgrims, the great doors are closed and locked. Another set of doors is opened, leading underground, and the uniformed men throw off their outer robes, line up, and march into it; Neon has by luck arrived just as the planned invasion is starting. He flies ahead to the Gibralter end of the tunnel and confronts the emerging infantrymen, who immediately aim their rifles at him, but Neon’s power snatches them from the astonished men’s hands, and explodes them in mid-air. One angry officer rushes at him but Neon punches him out, then tosses some fistsful of neonic force at the rest of the troops, until they’re subdued and disarmed. Then he marches them to the dockside headquarters of the British military base and turns them all in. Neon dives into the sea and with a heat charge he cuts through the steel sheath of the tunnel, flooding it. He then flies back to Morocco and sky-writes “All quiet at Gibralter” overhead, then flies away.

Notes

  • The Red Bee: "Sabotage on the High Seas"
    • In this issue's story, the hero gets head-konked unconscious with a big wrench. This is his (at least) 5th concussion.
    • Only if the U.S. government somehow considered Von Storm to be an independent agent, inexplicably in command of a squadron of U-boats, could there possibly be any case made that the German Government wasn't behind the acts of war committed by Hansen and Von Storm.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
