Roger Thornston; DEA agent Tony Hamil; Diana Reid; Chance Jones; Emery Jones; Karate instructor Jon "J.J." Allan, Jr. (introduction); Reid Tower custodian Alexander; one uniform cop; Lt. Mike (?)
Synopsis Concluded from last issue: The Hornet and Kato save Capt. Thornston from the ambush, but some of the gang, including leader Jose Truizar himself, escape. As the gang's attempt on the captain's life clears him of being their informant, the masked heroes turn their attentions on the one other suspect, DEA agent Hamil, and pay him a visit, offering him a bribe. However, his reactions are similarly incompatible with guilt, stalling the investigation. Mishi starts moving into her new apartment. A passing encounter with Reid Tower's custodian gives Paul a brainstorm, and a check of the records shows that the wife of the police headquarters' janitor is Truizar's sister. A bug is found, a trap is set, and Truizar and company are rounded up.
