Synopsis for "Don't Look!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Journey into Mystery #2.

A raving madman bursts into the office of a patent attorney attempting to interest him in patenting a magic mirror that reveals how old people will look in ten years if you merely think of them. If you look into the mirror yourself, it will show you how old you will be in five years. The attorney calls the authorities to haul away the lunatic, but not before the receptionist gets a look into the mirror and is disappointed to see she appears as a hag. They try thinking of other people and the mirror actually works. The attorney lets in the men with the white coats to haul away the man in his office gloating now he won't have to share the profits, but is horrified when he glances into the mirror myself and sees the face of the lunatic who has just been removed.

Synopsis for "The Scarecrow"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Journey into Mystery #2.

Tim Blake finds a steady living playing a pathetic weakling in a series of ads ("Don't be like him! Use Vigomin and be a man!"). Frustrated by his lack of success in the dating world, he visits a magic shop and purchases a strength potion for fifty cents. The eccentric proprietor offers him an antidote, but it costs $100 and Tim reasons that he'd never need it anyway. The potion turns Tim into a Hercules, and he goes around beating up his rivals and bullying women into dating him. However, he soon learns why he should have bought the antidote, as he quickly grows so massive that the Earth cannot hold his weight and he plummets down into the planet's core.
