Willie the Fifth

FifthWilliam “The Fifth” Millyuns was an old school criminal and the head of a crime syndicate in the city who became obsessed with killing Lizz Worthington after she killed his brother Halfa at the MacDonald farm.  Fifth tried to convince T.V. host Matty Munkie to help him trap Lizz.  Matty had recently lost his job when he tried to humiliate the detective on live television. Matty didn’t agree to help until Fifth held his daughter hostage.  The trap worked and Lizz was captured, as was Dick Tracy whom his attorney Flyface held separate.  The Fifth tried to kill Lizz by setting her under a giant magnifying glass but during the long murder attempt Tracy escaped.  Before the cops could corner them, Flyface, the Fifth and his moll Olive Tomate escaped.

In their new hideout, Fifth sent Flyface out to buy some new clothes. Flyface stopped off to visit his family, and angry, the Fifth sent Eddie Berrie and another hood to retrieve him.  Flyface came back with the unnamed hood at which time Fifth learned that Eddie had been arrested. The Fifth paid Eddie’s bail and Tracy and Sam followed Eddie to the Fifth’s new hideout. Flyface, Eddie and Olive surrendered and after a brief fight, the Fifth was captured.

Flyface and the Fifth later escaped from jail by starting a fire and disguising themselves as firemen. They ran to one of Fifth’s hideouts where they met Haku Kou, an old acquaintance of the Fifth’s who claimed that he could fly them to Hawaii. After a long flight, Haku took them to an isolated beach where they learned that Haku was with the Honolulu police. Haku’s forces surrounded them and the two were left on the beach until they agreed to surrender.  The two refused and Flyface and the Fifth appeared to die when a tidal wave rolled in and crushed them.
