Synopsis for "Tarantula Turns Thief"

In order to prove a point to his publisher Samuel Beerd, Johnny Law undertakes to commit a "perfect crime" by changing into his Tarantula identity and stealing some bonds from a notoriously crooked lawyer, named Gunch, (who allegedly stole them from an orphanage himself). He does all this on the say-so of two train passengers whose conversation he overhears on the evening commuter train.

The Tarantula visits Gunch's mansion, and flings a smoke bomb in through a window, then grabs the bonds from Gunch as he flees the house. Along the way there, he encounters and thrashes a gang of four hoodlums, but one gets away, then returns and frees his pals while Tarantula is robbing Gunch. On his return trip, they ambush him and knock him unconscious, planning to kill him when he wakes up, but they hear a news report about the robbery at Gunch's house, figure out what's up, take him to their hideout, in a dental office, and try to threaten, sweat, and beat the loot's location out of Tarantula, for a day and a night. None of that works, and they decide he hasn't got the bonds after all, then stupidly withdraw to another room, leaving the Tarantula unguarded, and still packing his web pistol, but strapped to a dentist's chair. Tarantula flips some toggles with his chin, activates a drill, and uses it to cut his bonds, then steps into the room where the hoods are, and escapes out the window, using his foot-mounted suction cups. The crooks pursue him, but he picks them off one by one with his web gun and his fists.

The next day the Tarantula surprises Mr. Beerd at his office by jumping in through the window, describing his "perfect crime," and pulling the stolen bonds out of the "reject" basket on Beerd's own desk, thus proving that there is so such a thing as a "perfect crime," which in turn convinces Beerd that he should publish Johnny Law's newest book.
