Synopsis for "Titan, the Amphibian from Atlantis!"A monstrous representative from Atlantis visits the surface world with an offer of wealth for a human traitor that will inform Atlantis of human defenses in preparation for their coming attack. The wealthy industrialist John Cartwright agrees to the offer, and Titan stipulates if the information does not help in our conquest, his reward shall be death. The industrialist agrees to the terms. All of mankind grows to loathe the name of the human traitor and every nation bands together in preparation for the Atlantean attack. It never comes, for unknown to everyone, when Titan transports the man back to Atlantis he gives the king a line of total BS about humans possessing shrinking rays and anti-gravity guns that could defeat any possible invasion. The awestruck king asks Titan if this could possibly be true and Titan answers that it must be, for he knows that if his information does not help us, it means his death.
