Synopsis for "Manhunter, World's Greatest Clown"

Professor Hugo escapes from prison and constructs a mind-control device. When the Martian Manhunter locates Hugo, he falls victim to the machine's control. Hugo then makes Manhunter the star of a sideshow to humiliate him. However, the crowds think Manhunter's comedy act is great, spoiling Hugo's attempt at humiliation. Hugo calls off the show and puts Manhunter to work stealing a bank. When Zook hears that Manhunter has gone rogue, he tracks down his friend. Zook destroys the mind-control device, then Manhunter captures Hugo. Manhunter's reputation is restored when a meteorite strikes the location where the bank once stood. Authorities believe that J'onn moved the bank to protect it, not knowing he was really under Hugo's control.
