Aman the Amazing-Man
Aman the Amazing-Man has stowed away aboard a German plane on its way to Russia in order to get back to his homeland in Tibet.
Suddenly, the plane engine catches fire forcing the two pilots to abandon ship. Revealing himself, Aman uses his green mist powers to help the two pilots get safely to the ground. Returning to the plane, he manages to put out the flame and continue on his course.
However, as Aman arrives in the mountainous regions of Tibet, the freezing cold causes the plane to ice up forcing him to bail out. When the plane crashes into a nearby mountain top causing an avalanche. Surviving the crash, Aman prevents the avalanche from destroying a nearby village much to the relief of the villagers.
That is when Aman is contacted by the Council demanding that he return home immediately. With his home so far away and with no plane to get there, Aman fears he will not make it back in time. While in at the secret Tibetan village the Great Question tries to sway the other members of the Council to punish Aman if he fails to return.
Thankfully for Aman, the villagers show him a shortcut through a cave. Using his great strength, the Amazing-Man lifts the boulders blocking the tunnel allowing him to make his rendezvous on time.
