He confronts the Mad Scientist Marnee. Marnee, the “Wizard of the Electrons,” is a wheelchair-bound agent of the Soviets who plans to CONQUER THE WORLD! Marnee has various SCIENCE! weapons at his disposal, including a "Master Wave" which will "nullify radio and electricity all over the world! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!" while Lane has an android he's built which he uses to fool a would-be assassin. Lane triumphs and Marnee goes insane.
