Note that there is no distinct character known as the "Midnight Stalker" in this story. The Plunderer tried to frame his brother, Ka-Zar, so that the English public would think Ka-Zar was the Midnight Stalker. In reality, it was the Plunderer himself who was the "Midnight Stalker," a fact which is revealed by the end of the story.
