The Headless MenA mad scientist has invented a way to decapitate people and let them live as his headless slaves. The Man of Bronze and his crew pursue this deadly genius to Central America, where they are all trapped and captured. Only Doc Savage can prevent the headless horde from taking over the world — but he is strapped to a sacrificial altar and is scheduled to lose his head at midnight!

During the course of this story Monk and Ham disguise themselves as "headless men" by making it look as if they don't have any heads. During this period they are unable to speak to each other and must resort to mental telepathy in order to continue their usual bickering over things like apes and pigs. A most unusual ability that they probably never used again afterward.
