Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "Sivana's Venusian Kingdom"

Billy Batson flies to Venus with eccentric professor Xerxes Smith, but it turns out that the scientist is really Doctor Sivana, Mad Scientist of Destruction. Sivana sees Billy do the SHAZAM transformation, and deduces his secret identity. Together with Beautia the Empress of Venus (with her face veil) Sivana has hatched a plan to strand Captain Marvel on Venus with a horde of ravening monsters, while he returns to conquer America with a paralyzing gas; and a machine to pump this gas all over America. Beautia's servants are giant frogs with manlike hands. Beautia's sinister beauty affects Captain Marvel like a powerful drug. Cap escapes Venus by building a rocketship exactly like Sivana's. Also, a week later, Sivana arranges for Beautia to win a beauty contest. At story’s end, Marvel is beating up some thugs (Joe & Spike) and demolishing the gas machine while the real villains escape off-panel.
