Synopsis: A street photographer took a photograph of Johnny Thunder. Behind him were bank robbers fleeing with their loot. When the photo arrived at Johnny's home it did not show him or the robbers. It showed a man with a handlebar mustache. When he went to the Ace Photo shop to discover what had happened to his photo, he found a dead man, and the Black Canary bending over him. Suddenly the police arrived. Now the photo showed the Black Canary and Johnny Thunder robbing the bank. Crooks held up the cops and took away the Black Canary and Johnny Thunder. One explained that they replaced themselves in the photo with the Black Canary and Johnny Thunder,then put the picture of the old man over it. When it faded it apparently showed them robbing the bank. The Black Canary and Johnny Thunder fled and hid in a large tank of gasoline. When the Thunderbolt rescued them it touched the gas and it exploded. They went back to the photo shop and arrested the crooks.
