Synopsis for "Murder on Another Planet"

Louise Mason learns that her old friend Michael Brayden has been murdered. His second wife relates she heard her husband being murdered in the upstairs part of their home, but was powerless to stop it, as she is confined to a wheelchair.

Mason decides to investigate the suspicious circumstances in her friend's death, donning her costumed identity of the Blonde Phantom for the first time in years. Believing the murder to be the result of a robbery, she wastes little time in locating the person who sold the computer hard-drives that were stolen from Brayden's office. She discovers that he got the hard-drives from a guy who found them in a dumpster a week ago, though the murder only occurred forty-eight hours ago. Locating a security tape of the bodega next to the dumpster, she sees that a woman dumped the hard-drives there.

Piecing together a new theory about why Brayden was murdered, looking through his old legal files at the law office of her old boss, Blake Tower. She soon confronts Brayden's seemingly grieving widow, Amanda, accusing her of murdering her husband and of pretending to need a wheelchair. She discovered that Brayden's murder was exactly six years to the day of the day that Amanda was hit by a drunk driver, supposedly paralyzing her. Brayden was actually the driver who struck Amanda, and she orchestrated their relationship in order to get back at him. She needed to wait until they were married five years as part of their prenup policy, explaining why she waited so long before murdering him. She wanted to get back at him because after the accident she was required to have an emergency hysterectomy in order to save her life. Amanda attacked Louise after she espoused her theory, though she was no match for the Blonde Phantom.

Reprint of the 5th story from
Daring Mystery Comics #4

Clara Crandall's friend Jim Hansen is sitting on death row for a crime he did not commit. Concerned for her friend she asks her robot companion Martinex the Super-Robot to help clear his name. On his way home, Martinex spots a bank robbery in progress being committed by Spike Green and his men. Thanks to Martinex's interference, Green and his gang are captured by the police and sent to the same prison where Hansen is being held.

Later, Martinex is ambushed by some of Green's men and dumped in the river. However he survives the attempt and overhears how they are plotting to break Spike out of prison because -- as it turns out -- he was the person who is truly guilty of the crimes that Jim has been accused of and that he may be identified while in prison.

Martinex rounds up the gang members and then rushes to the prison where Spike Green is already causing a riot in an attempt to break out of the prison. When Martinex arrives he takes on all the rioting prisoners on his own and while he has superior strength and durability over the crooks he is soon overpowered and strapped into the electric chair. With the chair turned on, Spike and his men leave him to die, however the robot survives and breaks free.

Confronting the crooks in the courtyard, Martinex knocks them all out and then strong arms Green into confessing the crimes that he has framed Jim for, clearing his name.
