[The Raven is still pursuing two main goals – get revenge on G-8 for shooting down his pilot brother and help the Central Powers win the war. Unfortunately his plan this time involves a tired retread of various other flame-based weapons used by G-8's foes like Herr Feuer ("Mr Fire") and Steel Mask. And used in better stories, at that. Von Ravenfeld plots to use a massive incendiary bomb with smaller fire-bombs built in that will fly like flaming shrapnel when the bomb explodes. It's an excellent villain but a sub-par plan in this story which suffers from the well-known weakness of Pulp repetition.]
