Synopsis

A Nazi underground movement has stolen a high frequency disintegrator invented by professor Wand, and will use it to destroy America.

Notes

Moritz is credited on various features for ACG comics, and he can be spotted by his very special ears with a little U inside, and by the profiles. Compare with his story in Adventures Into the Unknown #2.
