Laughing Mask. Dennis Burton, a young Assistant D.A. from a long line of law enforcement officers, believes that it has become too difficult to convict gangsters, so he decides to take the law into his own hands. He puts on a glowing laughing mask and with two .45s fights crime in his own way. After this appearance he changes his name to the Purple Mask. Apart from his athleticism, he has no powers, but is a killer vigilante, even shooting a bound and helpless gangster.
