Synopsis for “Return of the Genie!”
The genie from last issue’s Kirby story returns again when a man uncorks his muddy bottle from the swamp and discards it because he cannot see the genie inside. Since the genie has no master, he is free to do whatever he wishes and he enslaves the Earth. Growing bored, he sets his sights on the stars, but finds once he passes Earth’s atmosphere, his powers fade and he winds up back in the bottle again watching the man approach. This time, the genie thinks, he knows his mistake and won’t overreach, but the man turns away and leaves without uncorking the bottle.
