CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN (1958) (#1-87) (DC) #68 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Challengers of the Unknown (1958) #68
"One of Us is a Madman!" is written by Denny O'Neil and drawn by Jack Sparling and Vince Colletta. Prof Haley begins his descent into madness with this issue's strange encounter with the unknown. The President of the U.S. calls in the Challengers to investigate an underground test facility in New Mexico where scientists have suffered a series of inexplicable setbacks due to a sudden epidemic of insanity. A highly advanced computer is at the core of the facility which is engaged in developing a system for nuclear detection. The U.S. government is keen to discover the source of the trouble. Descending into the facility, the Challs encounter a bizarre electrified creature that immediately assaults them. They fight the monster to a standstill and continue their investigation wary of every shadow.

This deadly cat and mouse game continues in the underground labyrinth of the facility with the Challengers attempting to locate and stop the electronic monster and the creature attempting to hunt each one of them down. The telepathic creature is also trying to get inside Prof's head and succeeds in overtaking his mind. Although the Prof can't warn his teammates, evil thoughts now flood his mind and he secretly begins to plan the demise of his colleagues. Into this mix, comes Prof. Fillmore, the director of the facility whose mind has already fallen prey to the bizarre force. Finally, a desperate plan hatched by team leader Ace Morgan stops the menace by blowing up the main computer core. But the damage is already done: Prof is now possessed with an evil, murderous spirit and plans to attack when the rest of the Challs least expect it.
