Back on Night Lordís roof, the Em-erald Avenger scanned inside. Night Lord snored while the guards played Parcheesi. Good.
The Emerald Avenger put on a gas mask, broke a hole in the roof, and threw a container of sleeping gas into the room.
The guards fell on the Parcheesi board, already napping.
The Emerald Avenger broke through the roof of Night Lordís room in The Aveng-ing Eagle.
Night Lord startled and reached under† his bed for a weapon.
The Emerald Avenger lashed out his bull whip, grabbed Night Lordís hand, and pulled the screaming man up as The Avenging Eagle ascended.
The Emerald Avenger pressed a but-ton. A needle extended and pierced Night Lord.
The screaming stopped.
