Synopsis for "The Skull Walks the Last Mile"Edit

With the Skull on death row, Kip and the Hermit realize that the only person who can prove Kip's innocence, is about to die. (The Skull framed him months earlier with a jewelery heist).[1]

While the Black Hood naps, the Hermit goes to the prison to bargain with the Skull, to get him to a sign a confession. The two are alone in the cell, and the Skull strikes out against the Hermit and injects him with poison. Slowly, the Hermit becomes very ill and his body takes on the Skull's appearance. The Skull switches clothes and walks out of his cell a free man.

Outside, the Black Hood confronts the Hermit/Skull, but he escapes when several police cars arrive. Back in the cell, the Black Hood gives the Hermit a drug to counter act the poison. Soon, the cell is swarming with officers and the Black Hood roughs them up and escapes out the window. He then rushes to the Governor's home and convinces him to stop the execution for 48hrs.

Later, Kip visits Barbara Sutton's newspaper office and relates a plan to her, and her editor, on how to trap the Skull. The next morning, the newspaper headline reads that the Skull was electrocuted — even the Skull reads this. He also reads that millionaire Madden will be displaying some of his treasures in his home.

The two foes arrive at the Madden Estate. After a brief battle, the Skull is out cold and the Black Hood takes him back to the Governor's home. Now with the real Skull back on death row, the Hermit is freed and back to his normal self and Kip Burland is no longer a wanted man.
