Synopsis

Investigating an anonymous tip in Endless Caverns, Ace is coldcocked and fitted with a Man in the Iron Mask mask - that's also a ticking bomb! The Challengers vote to rush Ace to their doctor, Doctor Stevens, even though the bomb endangers the city. The doctor learns the bomb is activated by Ace's heartbeat. The Challengers pack Ace in ice, inducing a near-death state, and the ticking stops. They remove the bomb and return to the Caverns. There the unnamed cadaverous inventor shoots at them. Ace lobs the mask, which starts ticking, and blows its inventor to oblivion.
