A doctor of deviltry is one of the suspects in a baffling mystery that defies solution! When the mysterious death predictions of a jittery little man prove uncannily accurate, Tony Quinn begins an investigation which pits him against a diabolical, elusive master of crime!
The Black Bat’s crusade against crime very much resembles that of Tony Quinn, his true identity. Using his position as a Special Attorney, Quinn identifies criminals that need to be brought to justice and The The Black Bat’s crusade against crime mirrors that of Tony Quinn, his secret identity. Quinn uses his position as a Special Attorney to identify criminals that need to be brought to justice and The Black Bat lends a gauntleted hand to law enforcement by doing so, often outside the very law that Quinn stands for. This leads Quinn to facing off more with racketeers, gangsters, and murderers than he does monsters, dictators, and mad scientists. It also often leaves him not only pursued by the lawless, but also by those sworn to uphold the law.
Although The Black Bat often assists Commissioner Warner’s police force, one man in particular makes discovering who The Black Bat is his personal mission. Promoted from lieutenant and detective sergeant, the eventual Captain McGrath is a friend of Tony Quinn’s. Even with that, however, McGrath remains convinced for much of the series that The Black Bat and the ‘blind’ lawyer are in fact the same person. He bases this on them having similar physical appearances and other characteristics. McGrath, as is always the case in these situations, is always one step behind in proving that Tony Quinn is The Black Bat!
