Synopsis for "The Monster Society of Evil, Chapter 21: The Unholy Hydra"

Headlines proclaim Mr. Mind's demise, but Captain Marvel accidentally wrecked the printing press before he was smashed. Safe in a secret lab he brings a monster to life, but when it turns out to be a simple-minded fool he decapitates it. To his surprise this causes the original head to immediately grow back along with a second head, that of an angry dog, which Mr. Mind compares to the hydra of ancient Greek myth. He takes his monster out to steal a secret weapon invented by a nearby scientist.

In the street he encounters Billy Batson, who transforms and attacks Mr. Mind's new monster, but punching off the dog head causes it to grow back along with a wolf's head. Slipping away from Marvel they infiltrate the scientist's house, but the monster's idiotic head pushes an alarm button that causes police to storm the house. One of them shoots off a head and a dragon's head joins the others. Tailing Mr. Mind and the hydra into a butcher's shop, Captain Marvel throws a side of beef at it. The hydra's multiple heads all start fighting over the food and end up tearing themselves to pieces; Marvel's theory was correct, that if the monster could recover from even his attacks the only thing could destroy it was itself.

He changes back to Billy to hand Mr. Mind over the authorities, but suddenly a criminal climbs in through the window and coldcocks Billy.
