In Mad Doctor Doom's latest plan for world domination, he gets the help of the Ice Mice, a rare group of Arctic mice whose frozen breath can form a wall of ice that's thick enough to stop any bullet. He and Chester bring the mice to Riverdale, and try to use them to steal the Rare Ruby Rooster from the Humble Home Bank. But fate once again intervenes to put Little Archie in Doom's way: when Chester steals a silver fox tail from a bike to spruce up his car, that bike belongs to Little Archie's pal Jughead.

Indexer Notes
