Oliver Groman, aging town boss of crime-ridden Ashton City, has a stroke and a change of heart.
He asks Benson to clean out the racketeers, gangsters, and corrupt officials.
Each member of Justice Inc. goes undercover, working on separate aspects of the investigation, facing separate dangers.
A masked cabal, 4 evil men led by a mysterious 5th, runs the town and works against Justice Inc.
They research Benson: "some wealthy sap who fancies himself an amateur crime fighter. Rich as hell."

Benson acts as a detective, solving the puzzle of the Devil's Horns, and as a grim, frightening, no-nonsense crimefighter.
A giant safe is found in Groman's house, filled with ill-gotten loot, sought by all.
The masked 5 trap Justice Inc., only to have the deathtrap backfire and kill the 5 criminals.
