A young man is murdered, and reporter John King discovers that the dead man is Darius Magnus, the son of the famous submarine inventor Dr. Magnus, and that Darius was murdered for refusing to turn over the plans to a new submarine to an unnamed foreign power. King works with Dr. Magnus to track the murderer down, but both men are kidnaped by a mysterious masked man. When the famous inventor and vigilante known only as Mr. Enigma finds out about this, he vows to rescue both King and Magnus.
