Working for General Gordon can be a risky proposition, as Colt finds out, when she ends up in prison for the document theft he hired her to pull. But-through her efforts, the FF at least learn the original culprit who stole the Garganta formula was - Marilyn Macabre, daughter to the good doctor himself, leader of the League Of Alternative Science. While Craig Williams, formerly The Hood, is savagely murdered by his old enemy, The Vulture's Claw, the FF use a little deception to both bring him to justice, and down the villainous League. But at the climax, "double agent" Darkfire disappears. Whose side was she on, anyway? "The Mayhem Of Dr. Macabre" is written by Bill Black, drawn by Dick Ayers, and inked by Mark Heike.
