Tales of Suspense Vol 1 31 028.jpg

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.
