Synopsis for The Atom: "The Dooms From Beyond!"

When Dr. Gordon Doolin is preparing to look for funding to build a hospital in a third world country, he learns that he's really the heir to the Heath fortune. In spite of the fact that there is a family curse, Doolin legally changes his name back to Heath to collect the fortune before the deadline.

Taking up residence in his grandfather's old home, Doolin apparently becomes a target of the ancient curse. Ray Palmer gets involved because Jean is the lawyer in charge of executing the will. As the Atom, Ray manages to protect Doolin from the various apparent curses, incorporating the various elements. However, the Atom soon learns that all of these "curses" are really machines created by somebody on the property wanting to kill Doolin. When Atom discovers that the last curse, that of the element of Earth really turns out to be a bomb hidden in a globe, he disarms it. The Atom catches the crook when he invites everyone into the den as Ray Palmer. When the groundskeeper flees to avoid being killed, he gives himself away. The Atom captures him, and Doolin is awarded his inheritances.
