Satokata Matsu was a Japanese spy sent to America in the 1940's to perpetuate subversive acts to undermine American security. One of his missions involved stealing the plans of a supposedly unsinkable ship. To this end, he attempted to kill his only opposition, Merzah the Mystic by sabotaging the train that the crime fighter and his assistant Diana Lanford were riding in. Although the train would wreck, Merzah and Diana would survive and Merzah's powers would allow him to learn that Matsu was responsible. Learning of Merzah's survival, Matsu would call his agents together and challenge Merzah to meet with him. Merzah and Diana would meet at Matsu's hideout where they would be over powered and captured. Taken to another hideout in the country, Merzah would telepathically advise his driver Jose Abejaron where Matsu had taken them. Jose would accidentally alert Matsu and his men of his presence and another fight would break out. While the heroes were busy with Matsu's men, Matsu attempted to flee the scene. He would be pursued by Merzah and Jose, who would shoot out one of the tires of Matu's car causing him to get into a fatal car wreck, ending his plots against America for good.
