Synopsis for Mysto: "Magician Detective"

A late-night waterfront shoot-out between one cop and three gangsters is interrupted by a suave interloper in a tuxedo and an opera cape, who appears in a puff of smoke. He gestures and birds from nowhere fly into the gangsters. He gestures again and a scimitar-wielding giant climbs down from the sky on an unsuspended rope. The gangsters panic and flee and turn themselves in.

On another night, an escaped convict is prevented from murdering the judge who sentenced him to prison, by the same caped magician, who again performs fantastic feats.

Years earlier, an American "wildcat pilot" was flying across the vast table-land of Tibet, south of the Himalayas, and spotted a disturbance on the ground. A gang of hill bandits were chasing a hapless old man. The pilot, Rick Carter, landed his plane, drew his sidearm, and engaged the bandits, killing one. Before they could return fire, the hapless old man returned to the fray, with a giant friend, and a rifle. They became good friends, and over the next few months, Carter would learn from him the secrets of illusion (but not true magic).
When he returned to the United States, Rick Carter was accompanied by the old man's servant, Sikhi. Carter became a stage magician, under the name Mysto. And working alone, at night, he encountered and disrupted a series of violent crimes.

Since that time, Rick Carter had decided to return to the small wildcat airplane business, and work his crimefighting "Mysto" career on the side.
