Synopsis for Espionage Starring Black X: "Fort Johnson Blown Up!"

Probably circa 1940-July, a new bomb-planter is at large, and has already blown up Fort Johnson plus five other strongholds, including at least one 20-story skyscraper (in what city?). Seven seemingly-nameless gas-masked brown-jump-suited purely-mercenary bomb-planters are doing all this, at the direction of green-business-suited bespectacled buzz-haircutted also-nameless guy, who in turn is backed by a foreign government. In New York City they blow up a bridge and a power plant on the same day! Black X expects that they will next strike at a dam or reservoir in the same city; he and Batu fly to New York, and visit a dam excavation, and punch out a security guard and examine the blueprints. One section of blueprints is missing; Fritz Moronoff (a civil servant of some sort) is in charge of the charts, and he lives at the very expensive Diplomat Hotel; Q.E.D. Black X zooms downtown and breaks into his home and beats him in a gunfight and extracts a confession: the bombers plan to blow up the Golder Dam, that very night. Meanwhile back at the dam excavation, the guard has recovered and called in the local cops, who cordon off the tunnel, at the bottom of which are at least six of the bomb-planters, planting a time-bomb. Black X & Batu return to the construction site from downtown, [so the Golder Dam IS near NYC or at least in NYState]. Batu uses a hypno-telepathic whammy to get them past the cops, and they quickly find the bomb team; Black X charges; he punches out two, and Batu knocks out one, and BX knocks down three in one unlikely-looking move, then he cranks open a valve which floods the chamber or tunnel that they're in, which in turn disables the bomb, then he superhumanly cranks the floodgate shut again, before they all drown, then keeps beating up badguys until the cops find their way in. The cops recognize the famous secret agent and are big fans.

Synopsis for Magno: "The Electrocution of Bob Green"

Caption: “A gun’s blast shatters the stillness of the night … murder has been done!” The wrong guy gets framed for it, young Bob Green, and on execution evening, Magno the Magnetic Man shows up at the guy’s death-row cell, disguised as his elderly mother, for a private chat. Magno swaps clothes with Green (who then is escorted out of the prison), and uses a black wig to disguise himself as the condemned man. The electric chair seems to kill him, but in the Medical Examiner’s office, Magno sits up, punches out the M.E., sticks him in a closet, changes into his superhero costume, and leaves.

Outside the prison, in an “Atlas Electric” truck, Mike Harvey and Bob wait for Magno to land on the truck’s roof, then drive away. At Madison and Elm, Magno uses fire escapes to levitate himself to the top floor of an apartment building, and into the apartment of “Weasel,” from whom he demands the identity of the real killer who framed Bob Green. Weasel plays dumb but Magno beats a confession out of him, and he also rats out his boss, Spatelle. Magno punches Weasel out, then uses his powers to arrive rapidly at Spatelle’s hide-out, where he disarms and knocks out a gunman, then lurks about until he overhears Spatelle’s new scheme: to produce some evidence that proves that innocent Bob Green really is innocent, and collect about fifty grand from the state for executing the wrong guy. Magno confronts Spatelle, thrashes him, thrashes his unnamed associate, and sends them by truck (w/ Mike still driving) to the State Prison, where they confess to the murder and the shakedown scheme.

Notes

  • Espionage:
    • This story ends with Black X briefing his boss, as always, but somewhere other than Black X's favorite restaurant in Washington DC, for the first time ever.
  • Magno:
    • Mike Harvey might or might not know Tom Dalton’s dual identity, but he does assist Magno on this case, and Magno’s costume has no mask.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
