2 Hours to Die

Synopsis

On a routine mission, a seaquake avalanche traps Prof and his sub. Prof is stuck and he can't ditch a bomb, which will explode in two hours. Ace lowers a cable and hook, but the cable snaps. Red rappels down the seamount to trigger another bomb, but is rattled off. Prof asks Rocky to quit rather than get hurt. Rocky screams, “Think!” Prof recalls other times they were trapped by a Cyclops and the Flying Fishman. Prof tells Rocky to swing the ship’s anchor cable and knock the sub free. Prof ditches the bomb and Prof and Rocky get clear before the bomb explodes.

Notes

"A Legion of Death Cheaters Special!" This story is an expansion of a non-Challengers text page with the same title that appeared in an earlier issue. The Flying Fishman adventure is not recorded elsewhere.
