Mask. Tony Colby, a "militant" District Attorney, is blinded by the forces of the racketeer Olly Snate. But thanks to an operation by Carol Smith, whose father was killed by Snate, Colby regains his sight. He decides to pretend he is still blinded and puts on a mask to fight Snate and other criminals. Colby is assisted by Smith, by his tough valet Silk, and by his “strong-arm aide” Butch O’Leary. The Mask has no superpowers but has and uses guns against criminals and is conscienceless about killing them. His enemies are standard criminals, gangsters and racketeers.
