Sojo unmasked

Sojo unmasked.

On the orders of his master, the ghost attacked the training camp with his robotic army of ninjas. By stealing the decoy scroll, Miss Mirimoto was able to send Mystery Inc. to find the Sword of Doom. Sojo followed them, allowing the gang to locate the sword. After attempting to steal it, he crashed and was revealed to be Sojo.

Sojo donned his armor once more when Mirimoto claimed the sword for herself. He stood atop the bridge holding the Sword of Doom. When the real Samurai took possession of the armor, Sojo was blasted out of it and the Black Samurai had returned.
