Synopsis for Detective Sergeant Carey: "The Missing Envoy"

Famous Chinese banker and diplomat Dr. Sen Yen has traveled to America by airliner, to secure a War Loan. Detective Sergent Carey and Sleepy are assigned to be his protection detail, and they whisk the Envoy to his hotel. There the diplomat is murdered, in a makeshift gas chamber rigged inside a revolving door. But he turns out to be a body double of the real Dr. Sen Yen, who arrived by private plane. Carey figures that a crime this well set-up must have been carefully rehearsed, so he and Sleepy search all of Chinatown looking for a revolving door like the one at the hotel. Finding this leads to other information which leads them to the hideout of Sen Yen's Chinese enemies. These enemies have meanwhile kidnapped Sen Yen and brought him here. Carey and Sleepy call in a big police raid, but the kidnappers are setting up a deadly trap, with a pressurized tank of poison gas. From a fire escape outside that room, Det. Sgt. Carey shoots the tank with his handgun; it explodes; everybody in that room is killed or disabled, and Carey is blown off the fire escape. He lands on top of a police car, and is hospitalized.

Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Forger"

While Inza is visiting her grandparents, a small gang of criminals led by Fingers Beaumont starts stealing from the village people's bank accounts. Inza's concern reaches Doctor Fate, who goes to town in order to investigate the case.

When Doctor Fate comes across the criminals, they set up a trap for him by preparing a room with knockout gas. Fate inhales the gas, and even though his body is mostly invulnerable to physical damage, his lungs are weak against gas. The crooks leave an unconscious Doctor Fate on a nearby cliff, where he is found by Inza. Once revived, Doctor Fate confronts the criminals again and this time, he captures them for good, retrieving the stolen money for the farmers.
