Synopsis for "The End of the World!"
Scientists have discovered that the Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and that the human race is on the edge of extinction. At the offices of Beauty Magazine, the staff there begin to fear the worst. However, Venus is optimistic that a solution will come and the world will be saved, and manages to convince Whitney Hammond of this, Della Mason, however, is not easily sold.
Slipping away, Venus travels to Olympus and asks for the assistance of Jupiter to save the Earth. Jupiter tells her that stopping the Earth from going into the sun is beyond his power but knows who is responsible for the catastrophe and has Mercury take her to the lab of a scientist named Michael Templar.
There she confronts Templar who learns that he built the device sending the Earth into the Sun in a fit of rage. He explains that he is in love with a woman named Elsa, a woman who is only interested in marrying a rich man and partying. When she rejected him, he became furious and built the device with the assistance of his aide Maria, who is secretly in love with him. After completing the device, Michael sent Maria away and passed out, smashing all of his equipment. Coming to his senses later, Templar realized that he could not bring himself to remember how to reverse the effects due to his needs for the love of Elsa. With the Earth edging closer to destruction, Marie arrives at the lab to spend her final moments with Michael.
Venus then seeks out the Gods help, but they still cannot help and Jupiter warns Venus that even an immortal like her might not be able to survive falling into the sun. Deciding to return to Earth and surrendering to its fate no matter what, Venus tracks down Elsa. She finds Elsa at a party dancing with men, and when Venus tries to convince her to return to Michael, she scoffs at the idea resigning to partying until the world ends. Venus then returns to the lab and convinces Maria to confess her love to Michael. Michael can hardly notice her so Venus gives a little help by summoning the spirits of Cleopatra, Juliet, Salome, Helen of Troy and others to possess Maria and bring out her hidden beauty. Michael suddenly notices Maria for the first time and falls madly in love with her. This breaks the mental block in Michael mind and he is able to construct a device that reverses the process that is sending the Earth into the sun.
With the world saved, Maria and Michael embrace their love after they find that Venus had disappeared as quickly as she arrived. At the offices of Beauty Magazine, Della is once more trying to get Whitney to doubt Venus when suddenly Venus arrives with the full story about the man who saved the world, much to the delight of Whitney Hammond.
