Razer, a murderous demolition man for hire whose armour is so slippery that it is nearly without friction, holds Flash in the grip of his spiny gloves. To break that grip, Flash vibrates in place, melting the gloves. Their fight moves to the street, where Razer electrifies some streetcar tracks, as one of the cars approaches. Flash quickly outruns the electrical charge, evacuating the trolley before the current can catch up to it and electrocute the passengers. Unfortunately, the zap sends Flash flying. As before, Razer takes the opportunity to escape.
