Synopsis:
Torch and Toro are in Russia battling Nazi agents, Stephanie, Klutz and Weasel, when they are overpowered by men wearing asbestos suits and injected with a drug that makes them pass out. Then they are placed in a device similar to the one on the cover of Captain America Comics #28. Since the Germans don't bother to secure them, once they regain consciousness, they simply slide out from under the descending doom and capture Stephanie. Torch and Toro catch up with Klutz and Weasel in a bomber planning to attack Allied forces. They sabotage the controls so that it bombs a Nazi munitions factory and then crashes into it, killing the two agents.
