Tony Trent in "The Most Wicked Genius" (Columbia;1949)

We are closing in on the Christmas holiday, and you folks have earned a bonus today (plus I've had this story floating around for far too long), so hope you like it. In the days following the closing of World War II and the onset of the Cold War, Tony Trent gave up his long-running masked role as "The Face" and returned to his duties as a foreign correspondent. Note: I watched “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” on the big IMAX screen last night, (highly recommended, by the way) and was inspired to dig up this untitled story that I've decided to call “The Most Wicked Genius” from Big Shot #103 (Jul.1949); originally published by Columbia and illustrated by Mart Bailey. Enjoy!
