Synopsis for "I Know the Secret of the Poltergeist!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales to Astonish #1.
Tales to Astonish Vol 1 1 011
A couple named Rita and Larry Winters buy a house that is supposedly haunted due to their budget constraints. They don't believe the rumors, and soon they have renovated the creepy old house into a cheerful looking place. Yet, seemingly unexplainable events begin to occur. Items begin flying off of shelves and counters, sturdy objects float through the air, and the couple begin hearing strange noises.

A paranormal investigator hears rumors of the couple's experiences, and decides to investigate so he can disprove the existence of supernatural forces as he has done on all of his previous cases. Upon his arrival, the couple accepts his offer to investigate and go to stay in a nearby hotel while he works. The investigator creates diagrams and timelines to show that all of the incidents were caused by worldly phenomena such as earth tremors.

When the couple returns, he shows his findings to them. They are still hesitant to stay in the house, but fear that no one will buy it from them even if they provide evidence that it isn't haunted. The investigator offers to buy it from them for what they payed on it, and the couple hurriedly accepts. Now in his new home, the investigator pats himself on the back for a job well done disproving poltergeists once again, before taking off what is revealed to be a human mask to reveal that he himself is a poltergeist. The ending panel shows his true face, and other poltergeist with him in the house, illustrating that the incidences really were the work of poltergeists all along.
