Synopsis for "Eyes of the Serpent"

The Serpent Men of another planet send their agent Beriak to conquer the Earth. He assumes the identity of Harry Vernon and goes to New Athens Experimental School, where he hypnotizes several administrators into letting him become a counselor. Later, he revives a sea dragon from suspended animation and lets Supergirl fight and defeat it to gauge her power. Finally, he puts Supergirl under his mental control and instructs her to dig up the Eden Rock beneath one of the trees in an orange grove, to give him power to rule over Earth. But Davy, the "immortal singer", plays his harp to remove Supergirl from her hypnotic trance. She destroys the Eden Rock and defeats Beriak, who is drawn back to his homeworld by his race for his failure.

This story is reprinted from Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #9.

When a group of criminals plant one of their goons as a contestant on the television program "Million Dollar Question" they happen to be competing on a day where all the questions asked have to do with Superman. In order to insure that their man has a edge up they have given him a wire and have tricked Jimmy Olsen into coming to their hide out and are holding him hostage so that he gives them all the right answers.

Clark Kent, watching the show at home, believes that Jimmy must be in trouble when the crook on the show is able to answer a question that only Jimmy would know the answer too. Changing into Superman, the Man of Steel quickly finds Jimmy and saves him, and exposes the criminals plot and disqualifying them from the prize money. Afterwards, although Jimmy is glad that he got out of his predicament alive, wishes he could have competed for the million dollar prize money.
