Synopsis

The Challengers are summoned to a museum. A mirror and chart have been stolen by Hillary Mycroft and his gang. The mirror was fashioned by Kregon the Sorcerer to show where "the ancients" hid their most potent secrets. The chart shows where the secrets are hidden. The Challengers break into Mycroft's hideout, but Mycroft gets away in a plane. Prof tests the mirror and reveals three destinations: the sea bottom, a stone needle, and Sinbad's Island. The boys split up. Prof dives in the sea and finds Mycroft's thugs stealing the prize: a gold ball with rods stuck through it. A sea serpent attacks. Prof jiggles a rod. Gaseous hands hurl the serpent away. Meanwhile, Red climbs the dangerous needle prominence and finds the second gold ball with rods. In a dream, a genie warns him to descend through hidden caves. Red meets Mycroft's thugs, who steal the ball - but Red keeps one rod. Rocky and Ace fly to Sinbad's Island and find Mycroft and the gold ball, when they're seized by a roc: a giant bird! Ace jiggles a rod. A gaseous armored torso appears. The roc flies off and the boys float to safety. Mycroft explains: the three balls hooked together will summon a genie! Mycroft assembles the globes, but they explode! Red, unseen, pulled a single rod and bollixed the assembly!
