Synopsis for "Battling the Underground Factory Fiend"Edit

With Nazi Germany importing more prisoners of war to be forced into slave labor, Keen Marlow decides to get involved as the Destroyer. Later that day he happens down a street where he sees some Nazi soldiers beating on some slaves and changes into the Destroyer. Easily beating the Nazis into submission, the Destroyer leads the slaves to freedom in a safe house telling them he will be back with food an ammunition to defend themselves.

At that very moment within the German Chancellory, Adolf Hitler calls his loyal minion Herr Gruber into a meeting. He confides in Gruber that Allied Forces have managed to wipe out many of Germany's weapons factories tilting the war in their favor and asks Gruber to come up with a solution to the problem. Gruber instantly comes up with an idea: building underground factories in the forests of Germany using slave labor would make their weapons manufacturing factories impossible for the allies to find. Hitler likes the idea and gives Herr Gruber his consent to carry forward.

Outside, Gruber is spotted leaving by the Destroyer's fiancee Florence von Banger who goes back to tell Keen about what she had seen. Keen realizes that there must be something up that could give the Nazis the edge in weapons manufacturing and decides to follow Gruber as the Destroyer. Following Gruber to a Nazi base, he tries to overhear their plans but is spotted. He manages to fight off the Nazi soldiers, but will soon be outnumbers and so he flees promising Gruber that they will meet again.

Still not sure where the new weapons factories will be constructed, Keen decides to comb all the forests around Berlin to find them and comes across Gruber ordering slaves through the construction of one of the new underground factories. While snooping around a snapping twig gives him away and Keen fights off two Nazi soldiers that spot him. Wondering where the slaves went, the Destroyer then uncovers a secret passage into the underground construction site that was hiding under a large rock.

Inside, he fights his way to the main office where he orders the workers to unite and revolt against their Nazi oppressors. As the slaves fight the Nazis, the Destroyer and Gruber clash, until the Destroyer knocks him out by tossing a plane propeller at his head. With Gruber knocked out, the Destroyer orders the slaves to retreat out into the forest while he sets a fuse to blow up the factory. With the underground factory destroyer, the surviving Nazis are tied to the trees and the Destroyer and the freed slaves escape into the night. The Destroyer returns to Florence and as Keen Marlow tells her of his successful mission.

Young Jimmy and Jackie are searching for such an item when they are attacked by an ogre. Jackie is surprised when Jimmy is able to hold his own against an ogre their size, wondering if Jimmy would be able to tack on a full grown one when he grows to be an adult.

In their searches they come across an hour glass at the top of a pile of sand. Reading an inscription they learn that it is filled with the sands of time and that he who uses it could speed up or reverse their aging by allowing the sands to flow through it.

They are soon captured by ogres and taken to their leader. There, Jimmy uses the hour glass to transform into an adult and challenges the leader of the ogres to a duel: If Jimmy wins they go free, if the ogre king wins they will allow the ogres to eat them.

That night, John's friend Larry Scott is heading over to take a look at the idol for himself. Along the way he is driven off the road by a speeding car and decides to investigate the situation as Father Time.

Inside, as Trent finishes unpacking the idol he is suddenly attacked by a seemingly headless giant. Almost convinced that the curse is true, Trent is saved once more by Father Time who easily subdues the giant man and reveals him to be nothing more than an Indian warrior come to steal the idol. Before he can get information out of the giant a rock smashes through the window and knocks the massive man out.

Going out to investigate, Father Time finds nothing and when he returns inside the house the giant has come around and knocks him out with a sledge hammer. When Father Time comes around, John Trent tells him that the giant stole the idol. Father Time corrects him, showing him the real idol which he palmed in the middle of things, John then talks about how much of a fool he has been wanting the idol for himself.

Soon they are attacked by the giant and Sidot who demands the idol. Trent tells Father Time to just give up the idol as he put out a large insurance policy on it. However, Father Time is not one to give up in a fight and battles the two attackers again. During the fight Trent suddenly pulls out a gun and orders them to all stop fighting. Trent then reveals that he totally intended to have the jewel stolen so that he could cash in on the insurance.

The giant, furious at this double cross attacks Trent, but Father Time breaks up the altercation. With Trent subdued, Father time learns from Sidot that the jewel in their possession is a fake, that the real one is safe back in India and that Sidot had tricked Trent knowing that the greedy explorer would abuse ownership of the jewel.
