Synopsis for The Clock: "Robbers from Hades"Edit

"The Devil" inflicts a treatment ("that sodium di-nitrophenol solution") which causes several men to burn internally, with intense heat, to force them to rob for him. Next on his list of men to kidnap is Brian O'Brien. The first attempt at abducting O'Brien, on an open street in broad daylight, almost costs the Devil three men, punched out, but their weird metabolic condition enables them to revive quickly. The second abduction attempt gets one of them (D-3) shot dead by his own gang, but succeeds in carrying away O'Brien. Pug arrives in time to spot the problem and follow them to their hideout, in which the Devil wastes no time in dosing O'Brien with his fiendish treatment. Pug bursts in, punches down the Devil, frees O'Brien, and hands him one of his silk masks. The Devil regains his feet and summons his three remaining minions into the fight, then flees; the Clock punches out two of them, then pursues. The floor of this dump has weird rectangular pits with fires burning in them; at least two of the Robbers from Hades fall into these. The chase gets onto a rooftop, where the Devil just plain carelessly blunders his way over the side of the building and hurtles to his death on the pavement below. Meanwhile the bad medicine is making the Clock dizzy and feverish, but he just happens to know the antidote for sodium di-nitrophenol poisoning; it's egg whites and milk; Pug fetches some of those, and soon the Clock recovers. The Robbers from Hades (D-1, D-2, & D-5) have all died, from a combination of long-term poisoning and being punched into a fire.
