Synopsis for Chic Carter: "Veda the Cobra Woman"Edit

The new, very exotic dancer at the Club Orientale is Veda, from India, wife of Peter Kane the Rubber Tycoon. Chic Carter, ace police reporter, hangs out at this club, and catches her act. She’s sensational; she writhes like a snake; the men are enthralled; the women are creeped out. After her performance, she is hit on by the very drunk Peter Kane Junior, her stepson, they move to a secluded corner, she kisses him, he leaps to his feet, shaking like a leaf, staggers a few steps, and falls down dead, then immediately goes stiff and turns black. Veda has already slipped away but Chic saw her leaving with PKJ, and gives chase. He finds her dropped cigarette butt, with a brown stain on it, that he deduces is probably the poison that killed Junior. Monahan and his cops arrive; Carter tells Monahan what he knows and suspects, then leaves in a taxi, to visit Peter Kane Senior. PKS lives on a big, creepy estate. Inside, Veda is breaking the news of Junior’s death to Senior, and they share a tender moment, then a creepy moment, then Chic Carter leaps into the room through a closed window, and yells for Kane to not kiss her. He tells Kane his theory about poisoned lipstick, and picks up the phone to call in Monahan. Kane Senior pulls a gun on him, so Chic clocks him upside the head with the telephone, knocking him half-unconscious. While Carter is on the phone to Monahan, Veda gives her stricken husband a cigarette and tells him it will make him feel better.

Monahan arrives abruptly, and tells Carter all about how completely wrong Carter’s theory is. Kane Junior had died of nerve paralysis; no poison was found in his system; the stain on the cigarette butt was just Junior’s own blood from a cut lip; and no narcotics or poisons were found in the butt itself either. About then Monahan notices Kane Senior, sitting on the floor, dead. Carter claims he didn’t hit the old guy THAT hard, but Monahan has to hold him for manslaughter. Veda observes this through a window, and gloats that now all of Kane’s millions are hers.

On the way to the precinct, Carter sucker-punches Monahan and jumps out of the car and runs away. Cops shoot at him but miss. He sneaks back into the Kane mansion, and searches Veda’s room. On her make-up desk are camphor ice and mucilage. That tells him everything he needs to know! Suddenly a big cobra is in the room, Chic jumps back, whips out a gun, and shoots it dead. Veda walks in and is aghast; he has killed a god! Carter then spells out exactly what happened to Peter Kane Junior and exactly how she did it; she smirks, and stabs herself with a hypodermic needle full of cobra venom, and falls down dead.

NotesEdit

  • Plastic Man is reprinted in Plastic Man Archives Volume 1.
  • Chic Carter:
    • One of two things is true: 1/ Monahan forgot to confiscate Carter’s handgun when he took him into custody. Or 2/ Carter grabbed Monahan’s gun in the scuffle when he escaped the police car.
    • We only have Veda’s word for it that the hypo contained Cobra Venom, and we don’t actually see her body go stiff or turn black.
