Time On His Hands
Genre
science fiction; superhero
Characters
Green Mask; Capt. Kidd; Johnny Green; Suzie; Bigus Bossus
Synopsis
Johnny and Suzie ascend in a balloon, but Johnny changes into the Green Mask when he sees some crooks assaulting a policeman. The Green Mask rejoins Suzie and they reach "the place where space is curved." They travel in time to Captain Kidd's pirate ship, then go into the future to the year 9484 where they are nearly eliminated because they carry germs. The Green Mask and Suzie return to their own time at last.

Indexer Notes

(title from cover); first line is ["Little Johnny Green, whose fury against crime and injustice..."]

Johnny and Suzie are together in the balloon's basket when Johnny becomes the Green Mask and leaps out to save a policeman. The Green Mask rejoins Suzie for the adventure but for some reason she never wonders what happened to Johnny. At the end of the story the Green Mask vanishes and Johnny awakes but clearly not in the balloon's basket.
