Synopsis for Espionage, starring Black Ace: "Madame Doom"

Circa probably 1938-Dec: The threat of war looms between the USA and "The Orient." [So they've stopped calling Japan "Japan" for some reason.] "And behind events sits the elusive, mysterious Madame Doom, directing destiny." Black Ace and his monocle and fedora, and Batu, in a racing plane, at 200 mph, must transport the US defense plans from NYC to a conference in California while avoiding Madame Doom, a sexy foreign agent. An alliance among three leading democracies (the "Tri-Power Pact"), to join their naval strength in the Pacific, is signed in Geneva on 10 December. Black Ace gets captured at St.Louis, and there's tension and repartee for him and Madame Doom, but Batu meanwhile has found Agent O-12 and brought him along, so the rescue works out. And there's an aerial machinegun fight farther along the way. In Frisco O-12 & Black Ace link up with Agent B-5, and in a quick street fight vanquish Madame Doom's small entourage and re-steal the important plans, then get away. She leaves the country, stymied.

Synopsis for Invisible Justice: "The Green Lizard”

In Florida, Kent Thurston’s wealthy friend John Blaine is being threatened and squeezed for money by “the Green Lizard,” and two of his rich businessman friends have already disappeared. Also unbeknown to Blaine, his servant Winters is secretly working for the extortion gang (as “Number Four”), and alerts them to Thurston’s involvement on the case.

The next day Blaine drops off a suitcase full of cash at the end of the road into the swamp, and drives back to town, while Kent lurks in the weeds and waits for the gang, then gets invisible and follows them back to their hideout, in the swamp, on a small island, under a fake tree. Along the way a big green aquatic reptile attacks Thurston, who kills it with two shots from his handgun. [This story is set in Florida, but both the caption and the hero refer to this beast as a crocodile.] The Invisible Hood sneaks into the bad guy den, and sets off an alarm in the process, but the sentry whose job it is to kill him sees nobody walking by, with footprints being left, and faints.

Meanwhile in another room, Blaine’s two missing friends are still alive, but now the Green Lizard has decided to throw them to the crocodiles. The Invisible Hood steps into the room and talks smack at the Green Lizard, who points a pistol in his general direction, sets a 10-minute timer on a hideout-destroying bomb, and talks some smack back. Invisible Hood shoots him in the shoulder, but the Lizard accesses a hidden escape ladder, and flees. Hood gets the hostages out of the place, then pursues, catches, tackles, beats up, and unmasks the Green Lizard, then carries him unconscious to the pier. He and the still-unnamed businessmen escape in the Lizard’s speedboat, just as the pre-set explosives blow up the Lizard’s swamp hideout. It turns out that Blaine’s servant Winters is not only “Number Four” but the boss as well, of this crime gang.

Synopsis for Hugh Hazzard and his Iron Man: "The Submarine Disasters”

In one week, four submarines, two of them American, are lost at sea, mysteriously. An FBI agent, Amos Dobbs, shows up at Hugh Hazzard’s very upscale apartment building, and the front desk sends him up, and Hugh greets him at the door, (hiding a pistol in one hand). Dobbs tells Hugh about his investigation into the world-wide submarine sabotage ring, and his misadventure of getting captured by the gang, then escaping as a big explosion destroyed the gang’s hideout. Here’s the problem: the Navy’s newest and most modern submarine is set to be launched the next day, at noon, and Dobbs is certain that the bad guys have it targeted. Hazzard knows the armed forces to be riddled with spies, but the one place where there are none is of course the Naval Academy at Annapolis, so Dobbs should persuade Admiral Hull to recruit his submarine crew from there, and Hull goes along with that plan.

Meanwhile across the street, a seemingly-random rooftop gunman shows up and takes a shot at Hugh Hazzard’s window, but mortally wounds Dobbs instead. Hugh runs up to the roof of his building, which is where Bozo is stored, and sends the robot leaping and sprinting after the fleeing gunman. The gunman deliberately and fatally throws himself off the side of the building, then Bozo follows him to the sidewalk and, quite robotically, carries the dead guy back to Hugh.

The next day Hugh drives out to the Naval Base to look over the new sub, but is escorted off the base by an armed sentry. Reassured but dissatisfied, Hazzard calls in Bozo, who flies there, and lands, unseen. As the submarine is launched, a biplane dive-bomber shows up, drops a big bomb, and barely misses the sub. It loops back for a second attack, but by this time Bozo the Iron Man is airborne, and intercepts the next dropped bomb, flinging it directly back at the biplane, to fatal effect. Watching from the ground nearby are Hanz and Leon, two spies, whose priorities have just now been changed. They have got to get control of that robot, at any cost. They stealthily approach Hazzard’s position, as Hugh is sending the robot back home, then ambush him and knock him unconscious with a stout stick, and carry him back to their boss, Lugar.

Hazzard is lashed with a whip, and is offered millions of dollars, but he doesn’t reveal Bozo’s location. But the bad guys also have kidnapped Hugh’s girlfriend Pat, so Hugh agrees to help Lugar after all, while Lugar foolishly allows Hazzard to put on his shirt and jacket; the control panel is still concealed under one lapel, and he calls in his giant robot. But first the gang throws Hugh and Pat into a big glass shark tank. Bozo’s very dynamic arrival results in the tank being busted and the sharks getting loose into the bad guys’ hideout. All the bad guys get killed, and Hugh almost does too, before Bozo smashes one big fish against a wall, and soon afterward Pat and Hugh are back at Hugh's place reviewing the events.
