An escaped con overhears a news story about scientists seeking volunteers for testing a new suit of armor impervious to radiation. He thinks he would be safest from the police inside the suit, so he volunteers for the job. After several successful tests, it occurs to him that he is so powerful as long as he remains inside the suit that he need no longer fear being apprehended and returned to jail. He goes on a crime spree, first robbing a bank and then approaching Alcatraz with the intention of freeing the prisoners to forge into his personal army. Just as he is about to free the first group from their cells, he is struck with horrible pains and so makes his way to the prison infirmary.
