Synopsis
Because he is being called to Washington D.C. on defense matters, Bulldog Denny calls together a group of heroes to deal with the Frankenstein monster, who has not been stopped from ravaging many areas of the country. When the monster is weakened, the Green Lama repeats magic Tibetan words that seem to send the monster into another world where he faces a variety of fearful foes. Then reality sets back in and the heroes force the monster off a cliff to his apparent doom.
