At the Willman Wax museum, Green Hornet and Kato statues are the new exhibits in the Chamber of Evil. Mike Axford is there and congratulates the sculptor, Peter Willman, on his talent. The owner and Wellman’s partner, James Rancourt, comes in and shows the reporters exhibits on the various evil doers, including The Scarf, identity unknown.

Hazel Schmidt: I don't know.
James Rancourt: Attila the Hun is immortal. Jack the Ripper, Bluebeard, Captain Kidd! The great intellects wrestle with the problem of what impelled them to their greatness. And now, Vina, The Scarf joins that exalted company!

James Rancourt: No, that is The Scarf. I am the vessel of his immortality. The Boswell to his Johnson.
