Mayor Fermin gives corrupt Judge Elmer Whelperson a choice -- He can quit or get fired.

Whelperson acquits brutal killer Carlton Fregosi in exchange for the death of the mayor and anyone who happens to be with her. The Question tries to stop the killer but he is overpowered by the mammoth man.

Fregosi goes to City Hall where Myra is with her mentally handicapped daughter and a mute hunchback who repaired her car. Fregosi traps them in the elevator, which picks that very moment to break down.

Harold, the hunchback mechanical whiz gets the elevator going and out of harm's way. But Jackie starts to have a seizure and Myra becomes desperate to get her daughter back to the car where her medicine is.

Harold leads them out of the elevator as Fregosi breaks in. The hunchback traps the killer between floors and quietly slips away as the Question arrives at the scene after the crisis is past.
