Synopsis for "The Return of the Hulk!"

Journey into Mystery Vol 1 66 001.jpg

As Xemnu finds himself hurtling towards the sun, he uses telekinesis to bank shot an asteroid off the rocket changing its course back towards Earth. Once he arrives he sets about hypnotizing the occupants of a small town to build a mass hypnotizing device. When the man who defeated him before cannot detect his rocket, he figures Xemnu must be back on Earth somehow and deduces his location from the blackout Xemnu has imposed on the town while his device is being built. When the man confronts Xemnu, Xemnu pursues him to the top of an oil tower where he claims that he will "hypnotize your atoms to fall apart" and the man whips out a mirror so Xemnu disintegrates himself. But he'll be back.

Synopsis for "The Thing Behind the Wall"

Journey into Mystery Vol 1 66 026.jpg

A thief attempts to steal money from a bank vault and is confronted by a creature from the Dark Dimension who gives him the power to walk through walls so that the two of them can return to the creature's world in order that the thief can be interrogated to prepare for the coming invasion of Earth. The frightened man resists, and bank security opens the vault, causing the creature to withdraw so as to remain undetected. The thief is sent to prison where no one believes his story. He comes to doubt it himself, until he hears the creature telling him to escape his cell. He pounds on the wall in frustration and slips right through it, coming face to face with the creature. He quickly sends himself back the way he came before he is seized. He wonders if he imagined even this, but is terrified of touching any wall ever again.
