Synopsis for "Pinhead and his Underworld Army"Edit

After stopping a blazing building the Human Torch is ordered to report to the mayors office. There the mayor tells the Torch that New York has been infiltrated by Fifth Columnists who seek to destabilize the city. The Torch agrees to join the mayors task force -- dubbed the Suicide Squad -- to root out this subversive element. When the Fifth Columnists fly planes over the city dropping notes warning of attacks unless the US changes it's position on the war, the Human Torch flies into action and downs all the planes, however all the pilots die before they can impart any information.

Meanwhile, that the Fifth Columnists secret hideout, their leader Pinhead is furious at this attack by the Human Torch. He explains to his minion that he is to keep American forces occupied so that they are unaware of Japanese forces tunneling through the Bering Straight to invade America through Alaska. The next phase of their plan involves attacking a military storage facility and stealing a number of tanks to siege the city.

When they unleash their attack, the Torch, police and military fight back. Despite Pinhead's superior fire power, the Torch and his allies manage to fight off the attack on the city. Forcing the fleeing Pinhead to crash, the Torch confronts their ringleader. Pinhead charges at the Torch, burning himself to death.

Philo Zog is put under the hypnotic control of Prince Omei who uses Zog's invention to demand other local mobsters to claim loyalty to him. When some of the mobsters attempt to destroy Electro, Omei uses it to round them up for torture as a lesson to the others. Omei then commands Zog to send Eleectro out to commit a series of robberies, pitting the robot against the authorities.

Growing paranoid that the forces against him might devise a way to destroy Electro, Omei learns that the government could use Zog's lab to create another robot to counter Electro. Horrified by this possibility, Omei would send Electro to destroy Zog's lab. However, the sight of his lab being destroyed causes Zog to snap out of Omei's hypnotic spell and he attempts to revolt. Zog is easily overpowered and bound up to be executed by Omei. However before Zog can be killed, Omei's minions would turn on him allowing Zog time to summon Electro back by means of his portable controller.

When Electro would arrive, it would shield it's master from the bullets being fired. Ultimately Omei would go mad and set off an explosion killing himself and the mobsters. Zog would survive, having been protected by Electro, whom he would command to fly him to safety.

However a freak lightning storm would damage the dinosaur cages unleashing the animals on the city. The rampage would attract the attention of the Vision who would seek to destroy the dinosaurs. As the Vision would attempt to destroy the creatures with TNT, Bailey would hire mobsters to make sure his investments are captured alive. However they would fail to do so, and the now insane Bailey would rant and rave about his dinosaurs, leaving him open to being devoured by his Tyrannosaurus Rex.

With no more opposition, the Vision would destroy the last of the dinosaurs before returning to his home dimension once again.
