Synopsis for "The Gremlin Mystery"
While the Marvels are watching Operation Atom, an atomic plant in the desert, they come across Gremlins. The Marvels first think they want to damage the weapons, then the Gremlins say they want Operation Atom to succeed. Later, when the Marvels are in their civilian forms and riding a truck, Mary is first knocked out with a spanner, then so are the other Marvels. They are bound and gagged by the Gremlins, who reveal they are from another world and want to steal the Atomic weapons. They are thrown into the desert by the Gremlins, who hijack the truck. The Marvels first think they will die from the heat, butare caught in a sandstorm, but Billy removes his gag on a dead cactus, transforms, rescues the Marvels and the driver, and goes back to protect the atomic devices. The Marvels foil the first attempted robbery, but the Gremlins escape. In their ship, they bury the workers' homes with sand to lure the Marvels away, then steal the weapons and take the cadmium control rods from the atomic pile, meaning the Marvels have to let them escape to stop the Dynamo's boiler from exploding using cadmium rods to hold it together. They follow rocket smoke to the planet Zorkia, where it is revealed the mastermind is Glozzk, a former munitions maker of atomic bombs, who went bankrupt when war was outlawed. He plans to use the inventions to win the atomic fair, then manufacture more of them, starting an atomic monopoly. The Marvels use the atomic inventions to win the fair, saying they will send the blueprints later. Glozzk drops an atomic bomb toward the fair, but is found by atomic radar, the weapon is stopped, and he is presumably jailed.
