   "theatrical district" to retrieve a "theatrical trunk" that
   he left nearly two years ago. The pawnbroker has sold it
   already, and so is murdered by the man. Doll Man and Doll
   Girl arrive, and the man calls himself The Adder, as he
   escapes using acrobatic and knife-throwing skills. The
   Adder finds the trunk in a junkyard, and the junk dealer
   recognizes him as a former vaudeville performer with a
   knife act. The Adder had been a robber, and was hiding
   because of a murder accusation, but his loot was sewn into
   the lining of the trunk. He manages to catch Doll Man and
   Doll Girl when they arrive in pursuit. He puts them in the
   trunk, and sinks them over the side of a motorboat. Our
   heroes escape ("Houdini himself couldn't have done it
   better"), and arrest The Adder, who later dies in the
   electric chair according to a newspaper headline shown in
   the final panel. -- Superhero genre. -- Data from Lou
