Synopsis for "The Magic Cup"

This story is reprinted from Plastic Man #25.

Woozy Winks is kicked out of an F.B.I. briefing, and seeks his fortune elsewhere. When he saves an insane man from jumping off of a bridge, "King Oberon" gives Woozy a Magic Cup that grants three wishes.

Woozy wishes that Plastic Man needed him, and Plas grabs him to fill in for the driver of an armored car for a robbery. The crooks don't like Woozy's looks and throw him from a cliff.

Woozy's second wish is that Plastic Man was there to save him; and as he was tailing the crooks as a balloon, Woozy is saved. Plastic Man laughs at the ridiculousness of believing in wishes, and Woozy pawns the magic cup for fifty cents.

Woozy's final wish is to get some credit from Plastic Man, and a radio report identifies Woozy as the apprehender of the crooks.

Mr. Aqua reappears in Duncan's lab and proposes an alliance, but the scientist will not help a murderer, and luckily Plastic Man arrives to stop Aqua from killing Duncan Groat.
