Oppenheimer, Director of the Manhattan Project. Tigress, Squire and Winged Victory are guarding some other men at the Wrigley Building. Tigress reveals to Squire their assignment is to protect these men because they are working on the uranium bomb. Tigress kisses Squire. After pushing her away, he shows her a picture of his wife and son, Cyril. Dyna-Mite arrives just as Usil and the Horned Owl attack. Dyna-Mite is captured in a net with the scientists. Tigress and Squire fail to stop the villains. Tigress crashes into a billboard and is stabbed by a giant arrow. The final panel shows what looks like Tigress dying as Squire holds her.
