Synopsis for "The Monster in the Iron Mask!"

An alien lands with a mission to soften up Earth for an attack. He is impervious to small arms fire, artillery and even a direct hit from an atomic bomb. He tells the humans he is only vulnerable to gas attack and that is why he wears the iron mask. A magician practicing misdirection with his son realizes the monster has been doing the same thing and tells the army to use gas. They don't think it will work and are reluctant, but he insists. He is positive it will work. They try it and the monster flees the planet. The magician realizes that the alien was using misdirection to protect his sole weakness. That was his real face.

Synopsis for "The Missing Link!"

Tales of Suspense Vol 1 31 028
Explorers on a remote island discover an ape-man of primitive appearance that they take for a possible evolutionary missing link. They bring the mute creature back with them for study by scientists in civilization, but the creature is listless. Finally, it demands to be taken back to the island, but says no more. The shocked scientists fear it can only survive on the island, and so do as directed, but once there, the creature heads towards a machine hidden behind some bushes that is revealed as a time machine. The startled scientists exclaim "Did this time machine bring you from the past?" "No", he replies, "From the future. I did not speak because we are not supposed to alter the past, but I must speak now. I am what humanity will become following an atomic war in a few centuries. You must change your ways." With that, the time machine flashes and disappears.
