Characters
Destiny; Death (introduction); Master of the Underworld (villain, introduction)
Synopsis
Destiny meets a wrongly accused man and takes a bold gamble, using his trance state to secure an audience with Death himself. Although very angry, Death conceded that he was under orders "to keep his hands off" Destiny, so Death shepherded Destiny to the Master of the Underworld.....a red devil who challenges the hero to a duel. Destiny uses jujitsu to best the devil and return to the waking world to clear the doomed man of his crime.

Indexer Notes

The Who's Who lists Brenner as drawing the strip from 1941-1943. Thus a ? is added behind the credits.
