Synopsis for "Gold Diggers of Fear!"Edit

When Kyle Richmond is kidnapped by a man known as Tapping Tommy for ransom, Tommy targets the Defenders in order to get the money. His hopes are to get revenge for his failing movie studio being bought out by Richmond Enterprises, and the debt he owes the Maggia for the robots he purchased for said revenge.

However, in spite of Tapping Tommy's visions of revenge and grandeur, he proves no match for the Defenders, who although are initially captured are able to break free, destroy Tommy's robots and subdue Tapping Tommy himself.
