Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Battle Against Time"

Inza visits a friend in prison and learns that the man is innocent, although he has been framed for murder. As the man is bound to be executed at midnight, Inza contacts Doctor Fate to help her find the responsible and save her friend.

Fate first interrogates Inza's friend and learns that the criminal behind the murder and the set up is The Dude, the leader of a criminal gang who runs a small time protection racket. The evidence from the case shows that Dude killed an enemy thug, but somehow he is not responsible for the kill. On his investigation, Doctor Fate learns that Dude had one of his henchmen pull the trigger and later, he placed the murder weapon near Inza's friend, who happened to be at Dude's place.

With the newfound evidence, Doctor Fate takes the criminals to the authorities, saving Inza's friend in the last minute.

Notes

  • Doctor Fate: "The Battle Against Time" is reprinted in The Golden Age Doctor Fate Archives Vol. 1.
  • Not a dream, not a hoax, not an imaginary story: Jim Corrigan is restored to life. That's hard to reconcile with the whole remainder of his career, but there it is.
  • Professor Merlin will return in Leading Comics #1.

Trivia

  • In the Doctor Fate story, Inza's last name is given as "Sanders".
