Merlin the Magician [Jock Kellog]; Winston Churchill; Agor (villain, spider-god); Nang Tu (villain, introduction, high Priestess, death); un-named Spider priests (villains, introduction for all, all die)
Merlin heads deep into the Himalayas in hopes of claiming a legendary diamond to bolster Britain's war relief funds. When the priests of the temple foolishly try and stop him, Merlin conjures up the great spider-god, Agor, then reaches the diamond while turning its defenders into bats, and impales the High Priestess on a spear. Merlin then completely destroys the temple and gives the diamond to Prime Minster Churchill himself.
