An American comic book artist is given magic paints which make whatever is painted with them real. He is compelled to go to Mexico and paint a monster as planned by the Aztec priest who gave him the paints. When he is ordered to paint more monsters, the artist uses his willpower to make his next monster fight the first, causing the temple to collapse on both monsters, giving the priest amnesia and ending his threat.
