Synopsis
A scientific genius, the Lightning Bug discovers an electro-magnetic force that she calls "Z-Rays" which she can direct by means of her belt and cowl antennae. She gives out free radios as part of a hoax, one of which to Max. When Sargon touches the radio, it paralyzes him and the radio flies back to the Lightning Bug dragging him along. She imprisons him in a vacuum tube to die of suffocation while she and her gang go on a crime spree as the other radios were rigged to explode, killing their owners and leaving their homes open to looting. Sargon breaks free and captures her and her gang.
