Wild Wild West
Night of the Cadre, #6626
Agent James West goes to see Warden Primwick, who releases condemned murderer Ralph Kleed in his presence. Kleed blows a whistle, and the warden attacks West with his cane. West restrains the warden, who dies from the exertion. Kleed escapes, leaving behind a whistle that has a special pitch, apparently only heard by dogs and wardens. Through the warden's autopsy, agent Artemus Gordon discovers that a franconium crystal has been implanted in the warden's brain, prompting violent behavior when Kleed blew his whistle.
West falls into the hands of master criminal Titus Trask, who intends to implant a crystal in the agent's brain and, in turn, have West do the same to President Grant so Trask can rule the country.
