Synopsis:
A legless Nazi agent builds a wheelchair with hidden flaming hands to strangle army generals and put the blame onto the Torch. He captures Torch and Toro in a tank filled with liquid asbestos but there is just enough room at the top for Torch to ignite his hands and burn through the lid. When Torch and Toro burst through the wall, a flung brick strikes the control stud on the chair and the Nazi agent perishes at the hands of his own diabolical device.
