All in one day, not long after last issue for the current stuff. Full moon over New York.

It’s revealed that Victor Jay had his name legally changed from Victor J. Goldstein, not that his family was happy about it. Both should be listed for him.

And now, the origin of the Fiery Mask!

TWELVE 3 (16:3)-FB
Dr. Jack Castle hangs out with some police officers at the local tavern, Flannery’s.
TWELVE 3 (16:5-17:1)-FB
Dr. Castle fights zombies in the streets with the police.
DARING MYSTERY COMICS 1 (1-6:5)
A zombie is killed at the police station, and Dr. Castle is filled in on what’s going on. He sets about to investigate it and comes across a house that’s using more electricity than it should, so he knocks on the door and is greeted by another zombie. Inside they’re attacked by a giant half mechanical bird, then greeted by a giant scientist.(by giant, I mean ‘15 feet tall’ giant)
TWELVE 3 (17:2-17:3)-FB
The giant scientist, now named the Zombie Master, explains to Dr. Castle that he’s a fool. Moreover, he’ll be punished by being turned into a zombie.
DARING MYSTERY COMICS 1 (6:6-7:3)
The scientist attempts to turn Dr. Castle into another zombie, but Castle taunts him. This pisses the giant scientist off, so he turns the machine all the way up.
TWELVE 3 (17:4-18:2)-FB
The machine begins to overheat.
DARING MYSTERY COMICS 1 (7:4-8)
The machine explodes!. Glowing, Dr. Castle beats up the scientist and blows up the house.
TWELVE 3 (18:3)-FB
Dr. Castle stands amidst the rubble of the wreckage.
DARING MYSTERY COMICS 1 (9-10)
Dr. Castle flies away. Now that he has powers, he decides to fight crime under the name the Fiery Mask!(because his face glows when he’s angry)

The giant scientist has a name now, and he appears in two series, so:

Good job with breaking up the events of Fiery Mask's origin there Daron!!

As for Mister E's real name, although it has been given as Vince Jay in TWELVE 1, and he was even called Vince by Dynamic Man in TWELVE 2, I believe this was just an error on the writer's behalf. In his first appearance in DARING MYSTERY COMICS 2/5, and well as his appearances in TWELVE 3 and later (even before he meets with his son), he is referred as as Victor Jay.

You're right, and I've made the change in my suggestion. Thanks!
