I need to read this cover story to find out if the welder kidnapped the woman in his full garb and somehow made his way back to the structure without being caught, or did he change into his welding gear after he got her back? And I'd also like to know the back story on how the hero doesn't feel pain. He's getting torched, yet, judging by his look, he just got cut off in traffic. I think a good title for this story would be Murder on the Girder
