Jeff King is appointed to investigate the murders of a group of scientists at Science Associates. The killer is the mysterious criminal genius known as Dr. Vulcan who is attempting to steal scientific discoveries. King determines that Dr. Vulcan must be one of the remaining scientists. King has the aid of Professor Millard, one of the scientists whose murder has been faked but is really alive and sequestered in a secret cave hideout. Millard provides King with a jet-propelled rocket pack so that King can combat Vulcan and his men.

The fourth serial, originally conceived of as a Republic TV series, was first released (for contractural reasons) as a theatrical serial.
