Our story opens at the trial of Black Morger. Found guilty he is sentenced to be executed.
At the same time as the execution in a nearby cottage a woman is pledging her four sons to avenge the death of her husband, their father.
Mysteriously at the same time the execution occurs the woman dies and the four sons pledge their revenge in blood,
Twenty five years later, as per their pledge, the four men gather to plan revenge on the four principal people responsible for their father's execution. The thug that stitched- Codger, the accusing mobster - Muttsy, the executioner - Weeks and the daughter of the presiding judge - Ms Stuart, the judge having died a couple years prior.
As the four men leave the cottage to enact their plan the spectral image of their mother appears in the clouds above the cottage.
The first man, the snitch, that encounters one of the brothers contacts The Spirit via an ad in the paper requesting help.
After hearing the full story The Spirit agrees to help but is tricked when he encounters the Morger brother, as he has help and overcomes The Spirit taking Codger, the snitch, captive.
Initially Ms Stuart was going to be the first to die but after she pimp slaps one of the Morger boys she becomes the final victim, instead getting to watch the others die in anticipation of her own demise.
The Spirt recalls the location of the cottage and jumping in his autoplane fly's there. In route he passes a police unit containing Commissioner Dolan, a plain clothes and Detective Finnegan who are on the trail of Weeks.
Weeks and Muttsy both are executed before The Spirit finally arrives only to be overcome by numbers and shuttered away in a room of the cottage behind a steel door.
Escaping his room The Spirit uses his auto plane to crash through the roof and once again engage the Morger boys in combat, the lives of the remaining two hostages at stake.
In the nick of time the three policemen arrive to even the odds.
A final kiss between rescuer and rescue-y wraps up the strip.
