Cat Man. Twenty years ago Barton Stone took the rap for a crime, leaving the other three men free. Stone’s fiancee died in poverty while the other three men–Steve Harrigan (“boss politician”), Roger Watson Hammond (“stock broker”), and Lionel Black (“real estate”)–prospered. Once Stone gets out, he tells the three that he’s going to kill them, but in a way that can’t be pinned on him. Which Stone succeeds in doing by dressing as an old woman, getting close to each man, and letting a cat with poisoned claws scratch each man. In his second appearance he fights ordinary criminals.
