Synopsis for "When the Mummy Walks"Edit

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 31 001
A man has a theory that the Egyptian pyramids where built as copies of single large pyramid that was built as a prison to contain some menace. He travels to Egypt to locate the lost pyramid and succeeds in finding it. Unknown to him, his assistant is plotting to kill him and grab the glory of the discovery for himself. When the man penetrates the inner chamber, he discovers a huge mummy lying on a stone slab. The assistant sets off explosive charges to seal the man in the crypt with the mummy, and the mummy stirs, awoken by the sound of the explosion. The mummy scoffs at his 'prison' theory, stating "I built this myself as I am an alien to your world, though my memory is clouded after my long sleep and I cannot recall why." The mummy attacks the man and he hides, but the mummy knocks a hole into the pyramid wall. When they emerge, the assistant dies of fright at the shock of the sight and the mummy recalls too late that this planet's atmosphere is poisonous to him which is why he built the pyramid shelter. The mummy topples dead in the sand and the man is saved.

Synopsis for "It Fell from the Flying Saucer"Edit

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 31 010
An artist is sketching in the park when a pencil drops from a passing flying saucer. He picks it up and draws a bowl of fruit with it and it appears. He discovers that whatever he draws with the alien implement manifests itself as a physical object. His thoughts quickly turn to selfish gain and he draws vast wealth. Not satisfied with only money, he draws himself president. Again, not satisfied, he makes himself king of Earth. He demands his subjects tell him who he is and they reply that he is sovereign of Earth. He laughs, and claims it's all due to this pencil that fell out of a flying saucer. His attendants express disbelief in the existence of flying saucers, and so he draws the craft and it appears. Suddenly, a tentacle snakes out and snatches the pencil as a voice exclaims "There it is! I thought I'd lost it forever." The man begs it not be taken away, but the voice says "You were given unlimited power and you wasted it. You deserve nothing more." The saucer departs and the man finds himself sitting on the park bench with his sketch book as though nothing had happened.

Synopsis for "The Man of Iron"Edit

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 31 018
The weakling spoiled son of a wealthy man wants to impress the local girls but is unwilling to make the sacrifice of steady exercise, so he demands a witch brew him a potion to give him 'muscles of iron'. At first she refuses, as it would be too dangerous, but he doesn't care about any danger she may face. She says "You misunderstand. It would not be dangerous for me, but for you." He threatens to have his father throw her in jail and she relents. The potion gives him 'muscles of iron' but he is so heavy he sinks through the floor of the witch's wagon. He can barely pull his feet out of the ground as he makes his way toward a solid rock. As he stands upon the rock, the witch is the only witness to his fate, as his weight forces the rock deeper down towards the center of the Earth.
