Synopsis for "The Machine of Death"Edit

Herr Wilhelm von Sin has invented a powerful Machine of Death for the Nazi forces that uses a drone plane loaded with explosives to magnetically attract itself to enemy ships via magnets. With his new weapon complete, von Sin shows it off to his superiors and after a successful test run he is commended but warned to watch out for the Nazi's greatest threat in their own homeland: The Destroyer.

The Destroyer meanwhile is on patrol he overhears a couple complaining about how hungry they are after being refused food at a local shop. He tells them to go to a nearby building and wait for him. After fighting off Nazi guards he confronts the shop owner strong arming him into giving him some food without the proper stamps. With food in hand, the Destroyer warns the shop keeper against denying a hungry man food again. He delivers the food for the couple, leaving them his calling card.

Later, the Destroyer resumes his civilian guise of Keen Marlow and goes out with his girlfriend Florence von Banger. They come across Heirr Sin running another test of his Machine of Death. Being spotted, Sin tells them to watch his demonstration so he can gloat over the destruction of another British ship. Unable to stand idly by, Keen tries to stop Sin, causing the drone plane to crash in the water beside the British ship. Furious, the Nazis then arrest Keen and Florence and take them to a concentration camp.

Meanwhile, Herr Sin is ordered to see Hitler himself. When brought before the Fuhrer, he finds the Nazi leader having a manic episode. Sin, taking pity on his leader promises to sink many ships with his new weapon in his name. However, Hitler is not happy with just this and orders Herr Sin to eliminate the Destroyer.

Later, Keen is brought outside of his cell to be executed by firing squad. Before they can finish their death count, Keen bounds over the prison wall and changes into the Destroyer. Returning to the concentration camp, the Destroyer fights off the Nazi guards there and learns that Herr Sin is going to launch more of his drone planes. Believing this is more important to stop, the Destroyer goes to stop him. Preventing Herr Sin from destroying a fleet of British battle ships, the two get into a fight and it ends with Sin falling off a cliff to his death. His soldiers surrender and the Destroyer allows them to leave when they explain that they were forced into obedience and they now plan on fleeing the country and fighting for freedom. Posing as Herr Sin, the Destroyer radios the concentration camp and orders Florence's release.

Later when the truth is learned, Hitler is furious to have his plans once more thwarted by the Destroyer. While back at their apartment, Florence suggests that they take a rest, but Keen refuses to do so until the threat of the Nazis have been ended once and for all.
