Comic StoryThe Mark of the Cobra (10 pages)
SynopsisThe producer at the opera is bumped off by a poisonous spring needle in his opera seat. The evil masked Cobra, and his pet King (which manages to tag Manhunter), turn to leave when Thor charges them and is shot by the Cobra's men. The snake, having used most of its venom on his first victim, couldn't stop the wounded, bleeding dog from crawling over to his master and reviving him, who then unmasked the Cobra in the dark after he had ambushed the Police.
CreditsPencils: Vernon Henkel
ContentGenre: Superhero | Characters: Manhunter [Dan Richards]; Thor; Sergeant Clancy; The Cobra [Hal Kant] (villain, introduction); King (villain, the Cobra's pet snake)
NotesHal Kant named after comics editor Hal Kanter. Originally credited to Jim Mooney, but he has rounder and more relaxed faces than this, as in Tales of the Unexpected #35. The staring, scary eyes can be none other than Vernon Henkel. Also the very thin and broad hat brims are his, only the inking is different. Compare with his signed Chic Carter story in this issue.

ContentGenre: Superhero | Characters: The Human Bomb [Roy Lincoln]; Mr. Chameleon [Professor Thorndyke] (villain, introduction, death)
NotesEven though the Who's Who doesn't list Gustavson as a writer of the strip, Mike Kooiman and Jim Amash state in the Quality Companion that he created the strip and wrote it, so the question mark with the script credit has been removed by Craig Delich 2013-1-18. Also verified by Gustavson's son, Terry Gustafson. Letterer credit courtesy of Terry Gustafson, Paul Gustavson's son.
