Synopsis for "Frankenstein and G.I. Robot!"
In December 29, 1941, S.H.A.D.E. Agent Frankenstein participated in the Battle of the Blitz over London and wiped out an entire Luftwaffe squadron. His battle was overseen by Father Time and Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the latter of whom was impressed. Father Time later received a urgent communique from Agent Shrieve concerning his reports from Japan. He then dispatched Frankenstein to the Far East, to work alongside the Bride.
The Bride soon discovered that there will be a Japanese attack on New York City. She infiltrated a secret Japanese military base at Mt. Fuji, where she rescued Dr. Robert Crane. But Crane informed her that his creation, the Japanese Attack Killer Elite (J.A.K.E.), was set loose.
Off the coast of Japan, Frankenstein and Father Time spot the robot from their submarine swimming right toward them. Frankenstein was launched from the submarine and engaged J.A.K.E. At the same time, Crane observed the battle through J.A.K.E.'s optics and overrode his creation, something that he secretly planned while under Japanese captivity. J.A.K.E. broke from his programming and renamed itself as the Joint Allied Killer Elite, and joined on the side of the Allies.
After Frankenstein and J.A.K.E. were brought on board, Father Time was at first rather dubious of J.A.K.E.'s change of loyalty but was otherwise convinced of its change of heart by Frankenstein and because the robot was unable to tell a lie. To prove J.A.K.E.'s allegiance, Father Time aked J.A.K.E. for the information on the actual Japanese attack on New York. J.A.K.E. complied and revealed that it was sent as merely a distraction for S.H.A.D.E. and Dr. Crane had only scant details on a top-secret operation code-named "Motalla", and may be already too late to stop it.
In New York, "Motalla" was revealed to be a giant monster that had grown out of the water in the city's harbor after being planted by a Japanese agent. Frankenstein and J.A.K.E. timely arrived by plane. J.A.K.E. assessed that the creature lacked underwater breathing and could be drowned. J.A.K.E. was towed by Frankenstein serving itself up as bait for the creature to lead it out to sea. After it is lured way, it sank into the water but it devoured J.A.K.E. However, Frankenstein dove in and cut through the creature rescuing J.A.K.E.
Since that day on, a strong bond was developed between Frankenstein and J.A.K.E. as their fates were entwined for decades as they fought side by side.
