Synopsis for "Mary Marvel and the Youth Pills"
Doc Younger is released from prison after 40 years, 35 when arrested, 75 now. However, in the pharmacy he worked out how to make a serum that would make him young again. He gets to a hospital to steal the last ingredient Hormone-G. However Mary is working due to a shortage of work and seeing him, transforms and stops him. He pretends to have a heart-stroke and while Mary Marvel gets a Doctor he escapes with Hormone-G. He then makes the pills and takes one, taking 25 years off and making him 50. He thinks of selling them, but wants revenge first. On a bus he holds up Mary, but she transforms and takes him to the Police. But on the way he takes another pill, making him 35. At the station Mary sees a different man, not noticing he is wearing exactly the same clothes. Mary thinks she must have accidentally let go of his arm and grabbed someone elses. Doc Younger reads Alicia De Haven, the richest young debutante in the country wins high honours at May Flowers school, and decides to kidnap her. Next day he hides on campus and places a hood over her hood while she is walking with Mary and not at all guarded. Mary transforms and removes the hood, but the crook takes another pill and becomes 20, which nobody else notices despite all the students walking past him. He tells Mary he saw the Kidnapper run away, she does not notice he is wearing the same clothes. He decides to get Mary who has called Mary Marvel three times. He offers to carry her bags, then at a secluded spot near his car he hits her with her bookbag, knocking her out. When she comes to she is securely tied to a chair and gagged. He reveals who he is and about his youth pills. He decides to feed her one which will turn her into helpless little baby and removes her gag to give her one, enabling her to transform to Mary Marvel, who is not affected by the pill. He then decides to take his last two pills as a baby cannot be convicted. However he turns into a man of 90, as to many damaged the tissues. He is then taken back to prison for another 20 years, his mind having snapped meaning he forgot the formula.
