Synopsis
Adam Strange intercepts the Zeta Beam at Lake Makadi, Tanganyica, Africa and returns to Rann, unknowingly carrying Jakarta, the last surviving Dust Devil, who had hidden in Adam's holster on the planet Rhynthar [see Mystery In Space #68]. It found a way to avoid being turned into glass like the rest of his race and, seeking revenge, he attacks Ranangar. The Zeta radiation wears off and returns the pair to Earth [which the dust devil also plans to conquer] near Melbourne, Australia. Adam accidentally discovers that static electricity can freeze Jakarta, traps him with a Wimshurst Machine [a machine that discharges electricity] and then turns the Dust Devil over to Australian authorities where [as revealed in Mystery In Space #84] he is immobilized and kept in a prison laboratory.
