A group of swindlers, con-men, and revolutionaries team up to loot the treasure of the Phantom's Skull Cave, killing him and the Bandar with poison gas. One crook gains entry to the cave by deceit, only to be appalled when the Phantom shows off priceless historical treasures -- worthless antiques to him. When the Phantom and the Bandar round up the gang, the enraged other crooks readily recognize the value of these artifacts, and of the Phantom's "minor" treasure rooms, heaped with gold and jewels.

Indexer Notes

This story is an altered retelling of "Earth Will Be Destroyed!" drawn by Steve Ditko in Tales of Suspense (Marvel, 1959 series) #9 (May 1960). Stan Lee is given a speculative writing credit based on his authorship of another retelling of the same story. Nick Caputo also suspects Lee's scripting as examined in his blog: http://nick-caputo.blogspot.com/2011/11/who-authored-ditko.html
