We are quite accustomed to seeing down-on-their-luck dweebs and even professors succumb to the lure of the occult, but this time, it is the wealthy industrialist Dudley Smudley who is tempted to merge with an otherworldly critter and start life anew as a mystical beastie. He has been communicating with the wicked "Descended Masters" for the last few weeks; the evil entities have determined that his name is sufficiently silly already -- I mean, hey! "Dudley Smudley"? You really can't get more ludicrous than that -- so they simply arrange for his consciousness to be melded with a denizen of the "Oonth Dimension". Panther Girl arrives on the scene, intent on talking Smudley out of the bonding ritual, but she is too late! Already in his alien form, Dudley zaps our beautiful heroine again and again, until she is far too dazed and exhausted to continue the fight.
"Uuuuuuhhhhhh.... This didn't g-g well, at all.... d-drat....."
"Oh, what a thrill! I wish that I had completed my transformation far earlier in life! HUZZAH!! And now, my dear Miss Campbell, I'm going to put you to sleep."
"Y-yes. I figured that much, already."
This powerful bolt crashes into poor Monica -- THWACK!! -- and renders her instantly unconscious. Panther Girl flops helplessly to the office floor. WHUMP!
"Ah, what a fine way to begin my new career! And now, I shall search for occultic artifacts. Good-bye, my dear. Enjoy your nap!"
Mr. Smudley flies away, giggling like a schoolgirl. Poor Monica won't be waking up anytime soon.....
