Synopsis
Justin receives a telegram summoning him to the offices of Cronin, Fox and DiPreta, where Cronin informed Wright, because it was his 26th birthday, he stood to inherit his parents' fortune. At his boyhood hiome, while going through some of his parents' possessions, he discovered a red scarf that belonged to his mother. From that moment on, he wore that scarf and a blue suit, vowing to avenge his parents' murder as Just 'N' Right, rounding up two mobsters responsible.
