Synopsis for "Madam Fatal Meets the Jester"Edit

The Jester is on a crime spree, but someone else is also impersonating him, and wants to pin a kidnapping and a "secret formula" robbery on him too. Madam Fatal becomes involved when he is caught snooping around the kidnapper's hideout. Suddenly, the real Jester shows up for the rescue, and to clear his name from the kidnapping (turns out it is his father who was taken hostage). Madam Fatal and the Jester take on the thugs and when the dust settles, he lets the Jester go, even though he is wanted by the police for his earlier crimes. The kidnapped professor never realizes that it was his own son who rescued him.

Synopsis for The Clock: "The False Clock"Edit

Framed for a series of ten murders (and counting), with a $50,000 price on his head, the Clock actually kills himself, in order to have a near-death experience and communicate with one of the victims (Raps Tinney), in order to learn the identity of the killer (Scat Bison). He directs Pug to electrocute him with DC power, wait two minutes, then revive him with AC. This works, and the Clock arranges for the police to be present when he confronts Bison, who ends up arrested.

NotesEdit

  • Quality Comics, Jester (Robert Mason) and Jester (Charles Lane), are two different characters.
  • The Clock's long-time habit of leaving calling cards and witty notes at crime scenes and on arrested suspects has backfired on him thrice before Feature Funnies #11, Aug 1938 and #15, Dec 1938, and Feature Comics #26, Nov 1939, and now does so again as a fourth copycat has some fake "Clock" calling cards printed up. At least this one went to the trouble of renting a tuxedo and making a facemask.
