Synopsis for "The Green Thing!"Edit

Tales of Suspense Vol 1 19 001
A botanist has a theory that even plants have intelligence and so he develops a serum to increase it. He travels to an island looking for a rare highly-developed plant, but can't find one, and so he injects the serum into a simple weed. Not only does the serum work, giving the plant reasoning capability, but it increases its height and strength as well. The weed harbors plans of conquest, and so to prevent the plant from reaching the mainland, the botanist destroys the motor from his boat. The weed declares that his life is forfeit and so he runs off to hide in a cave, where he finds a member of the plant he was originally seeking. He injects the serum into it, and the weed offers to ally with it in the conquest of mankind, but the highly developed plant refuses and destroys the weed. He admonishes the botanist to give up his experiments and fashions two oars for his boat so that he can return to the mainland alone.

Tales of Suspense Vol 1 19 015
A criminal skips town and sets up a newspaper as a front. When his typesetter changes the headlines from what they should read into what actually happens in the near future, he realizes he's got a goldmine, but the typesetter refuses to tell him how he can accurately predict the future. The criminal threatens to fire and blacklist the typesetter if he doesn't come clean, and the next headline he sets tells of an accident happening to the newspaper owner.
