||The Curse of the Scorpion
||Billy joins a group of archaeologists who are involved in tomb excavations and are just about to obtain information about the ancient Scorpion Dynasty when the expedition discovers the Golden Scorpion and adjusts its lenses, causing an explosion. When the smoke clears, Billy stands before the ancient High Priest of Siam named Shazam, who gives Billy strange powers which transform him into the mighty Captain Marvel! After the group divides the lenses up among themselves, with one being given the Scorpion itself, they flee the tomb and begin crossing a swinging bridge, which suddenly collapses.
