Brent had hoped to sell the land, but now his price has dropped, because of the trouble. Congo Bill investigates and discovers that the Thing is wearing armor to protect it from bullets.

Synopsis for Dr. Fate: "The Menace of Mayoor"Edit

(adapted from plot summary from dcindexes.com)
Inza takes a cruise where she meets explorer Bill Credon, who claims to have made a great discovery in the Yucatan, so Inza joins him. He leads her to a temple where Inza is betrayed and captured by Mayoor, a Mayan god and ancient foe of Doctor Fate. Doctor Fate senses trouble, but he cannot locate Mayoor. He finds Bill Credon and forces Mayoor's thrall to explain how he freed the Mayan god. Doctor Fate then tracks down Mayoor and vanquishes him. With Inza in tow, he then returns to America.

NotesEdit

  • The Ghost Of Elmer Watson is reprinted in Golden Age Spectre Archives 1.
  • In this issue's Doctor Fate story, Mayoor claims that he was imprisoned centuries earlier by Doctor Fate. While it is not normally possible for Kent Nelson to have done this, barring time-travel, Nabu could have been responsible for the Mayan's imprisonment. And actually there are no grounds, in a Doctor Fate story, for ruling out time travel.
  • Aside from the stories above, this issue contains:
  • Detective Sergeant Carey: "the Blasting Gang", by Joe Donohoe
  • Captain Desmo: "Rest in India", by Win
  • Radio Squad: "The Excursion Boat Fire", by Jerry Siegel & Fred Ray
  • "The Wildcat Strikes", by Rex Gilbert
  • Lance Larkin: "The Arab Avalanche", by Harold Wilson Sharp
