Synopsis

At a Community Chest fundraiser, the festivities are suddenly interrupted by Billy the Kid and his gang, who steal $100,000 in gold. The JSA’s only clue is a professor in a hospital near a deserted old west ghost town, and he tells them a story of his encounter with the Kid years before. The professor believes the same person is involved and plans to steal more gold unless the JSA can stop him.
