The story:
In the deep recesses of the Skull Cave is a locked door to which only the Phantom has a key, leading to a vault containing the remains of famous men in history believed to be ???lost?? to the rest of the world.

In this vault, the Phantom invites Rex and Diana to listen to a remarkable story about the 13th Phantom-to-be's formative years in a turbulent United States and the events leading up to a fateful confrontation between a young, cheeky and adventurous Kit Walker and the feared pirate captain Jean Lafitte...

Watch out for:

  • A vicious alligator fight
  • Gollo, a bearer of tragic news
  • A homecoming to a historic beach
