The second Golden Age Marvel Masterworks for All-Winners Comics collects #5-8, but for the moment I’m only looking at #5. I’m sure at some point I’ll go over the rest.

Paul Voltz is executed, but it was a trick! The Destroyer is getting him out of the country and Voltz’s daughter is grateful. Later, Keen Marlow overhears that there will be three more executions tomorrow and taunts the Nazis as the Destroyer. They send Inga von Leche to take care of the Destroyer. Posing as “Louis Kramer,” the Destroyer introduces himself to Inga and they chat about how terrible the Destroyer is. He convinces her they need to draw the Destroyer out by using the three prisoners to be executed tomorrow; have a fake Destroyer “free” them and publicize it and then they can get the real Destroyer when he gets jealous. “Kramer” agrees to pose as the Destroyer and they “free” the prisoners. Later, “Kramer” finds a note from the Destroyer saying he’s on to the plan. As the Destroyer he attacks the rest of the Nazis and frees the prisoners. “Kramer” is never suspected. Later, he meets back up with Voltz’s daughter.
