Synopsis
When Steve and Bucky visit the House of Pranks they are met by a jester whom the guests think is a man named Bryce but is really Johnnie Pinkham. Johnny overpowered Bryce a week ago and locked him up in a room in the subbasement. Johnnie wants revenge for a childhood hazing stunt when several of the guests locked him in a graveyard overnight. He manages to kill two of them before Cap and Bucky stop him. When Johnnie attempts to escape, he plunges to his death in an elevator shaft where the elevator automatically returns to the bottom floor.
