Another dreadful cover for a not so awful Batman and Robin tale in Detective 274 (Dec. 59) by Sheldon Moldoff.
Batman and Robin trail four mobsters to a deserted island where they hide their money, and all five are confronted by a crazy old hermit, who prophecies their dooms.
And then, as one might expect, the various crime bosses meet their downfalls in ways that fit the prophecy.
Batman figures out it’s all an elaborate cover, that the final crime boss and the hermit were working together. The boss was taking out his rivals, but in such a way that suspicion would not fall on him.
J’onn goes up against the Human Flame in this issue, an arsonist with a suit that sprays fire out of his nipples.
The Martian Manhunter displays yet another amazing power in this issue, creating sonic waves by snapping his fingers. This would not be a normal part of his repertoire.
J’onn avoids the fire by burrowing undeground and lifting the Human Flame and his associate, and the very ground they are on, hauling them all off to prison.
The Human Fame stayed in prison for a very long time, emerging just before Final Crisis.
