Forced to shoot back, Terry strikes the man with a precise shot from a rifle and he falls down to their level.

Synopsis for "The Case of the Armless Tiger Man"Edit

Marvel Mystery Comics Vol 1 26 007
A Nazi operative called the Armless Tiger Man has been hired to wreck American defense plants. After being paid for a job, the Armless Tiger Man murders his employer to eliminate a potential informant that might expose him in the future.

When the Angel reads about the murder in the newspaper he decides to investigate. Going to Larry's Tavern - the last place the man was last seen alive - the Angel learns that the murdered man had met with a strange individual who ordered Chateau Quim wine, a beverage that has been difficult to obtain due to the war in Europe.

Going to a local wholesaler of liquor, the Angel learns that the only other location that sells the rare vintage is the Hotel Metropole. Going there for dinner, the Angel learns that the same strange cloaked patron has a room in the hotel. Paying the man a visit by disguising himself as a waiter, he is attacked by the Armless Tiger Man who recognizes the Angel. During their initial attack, Armless Tiger Man manages to escape and heads onward to his next mission.

The Angel searches the man's room and finds advertisements about local defense plants and uses them to learn the location of his next attack. Going to the factory, the Angel fights Armless Tiger Man and subdues him. With Tiger Man's defeat, the Angel learns that his foe was a German factory worker who lost his arms in a workplace accident. Coming to hate all machinery in the process, he trained his body to peak efficiency and began wrecking factories in Germany. Discovered by the Nazi Gestapo, they decided to use his talents and hatred of machines to attack American interests by sending him to the United States.

After hearing Tiger Man's story, the Angel turns the Nazi agent over to the authorities.
