Synopsis for "Trull! The Inhuman!"

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 21 001.jpg

The mental essence of an alien bent on global conquest takes over a steam shovel and is defeated by an elephant. The story differs from others like it because the hero does not gladly win the affection of the previously shrew-acting female, but instead gives her the cold shoulder. Someone must have told Stan "It's about time."
