Synopsis for "The Origin of the Diabolu Idol Head"
J'onn J'onzz and Zook finally find the Idol-Head of Diabolu, just as a smoke-creature begins to emerge from it. J'onzz forces the creature back into the head, but is drawn with it back to ancient Babylonia. There he rescues a group of people from the creature and learns from them of Diabolu, the evil wizard. They tell him that Diabolu was the power behind Nebuchadnezzar, the late king of Babylon, and that he has been deposed by the Persian king, Cyrus. Diabolu, dying and insane, has vowed vengeance and is creating the Idol-Head to plague mankind after his death with the monsters J'onn has been battling. J'onn J'onzz assumes the form of the smoke-creature, which he has destroyed, has himself put into the Idol-Head by Diabolu just before the latter's death, and emerges from the Idol-Head in the 20th Century before a startled Zook. Then he resumes his Martian form and finally destroys the Idol-Head once and for all.
