Synopsis for "The Girl Whom Time Forgot"
Batman Jr. and Superman Jr. make amateur mistakes trying to help their fathers out of boredom. For this reason, Batman and Superman arrange for their sons to travel on an expedition with a notorious archaeologist, Professor Roger Hanson, and his son, Lance.
During their adventure, the Super Sons are challenged to solve the mystery of a lost ancient Mayan city (named Mayan-75 by Hanson), which they discover is inhabited only by Mayan king Hunab Ku and his daughter Mimaya; and also discover an old tale of betrayal and revenge between Hanson and his long-presumed-dead friend and fellow archaeologist Paul Somerset, which is solved with their assistance.

Synopsis for "The Sorcerer of the Sea!"
This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #245.
Jason Deeter, a man who claims to be a magician, seems to have the power to make Aquaman do whatever he manipulates a tiny Aquaman doll to do. Accordingly, he is kidnapped by a gang of modern pirates whom Aquaman has been trailing, and is made to manipulate Aquaman into pulling off a gem robbery. But the “manipulation” turns out to be a hoax, Jason Deeter is revealed as a policeman, and Aquaman nabs the crooks, who had tipped their location off by kidnapping Deeter.
Appearing in "To Call a Deadman"
- Seth Gross
Synopsis for "To Call a Deadman"
This story is reprinted from Challengers of the Unknown #74.
Seth Gross, a wicked magician, befriends Vashnu, learns the secret of astral projection, and steals from him a mystic box with the power to trap a soul. He goes into ghost-form and uses the box on the daughter of scientist McJames, forcing him to attempt jewel robberies in return for the soul of the little girl, who will remain in suspended animation for some time. Johnny Double and the Challengers of the Unknown become involved in the case, but it is Deadman who actually fights Gross, inhabits his spirit-form in a particularly painful process, and restores the little girl's soul to her body in time. At that, Deadman exits Gross's ectoplasmic form, with Gross driven insane by the experience and unable to return to his body.
