Recently there've been several requests for more obscure Golden Age superheroes. I hear and obey! Let's start off with the origin story of a super-mage originally hailing from Middle-Kingdom era Egypt.

From Fawcett's Ibis #1 (1943; copyrighted 1942 but now in the public domain. Scans courtesy of Story by Otto Binder, art (possibly) by Pete Costanza.

Ah yes, 1940s Ancient Egypt where everyone was inexplicably white.

Also, Prince Ibis looks to be only mildly miffed by being struck on the back of the head by what appears to be a mace. And he acclimated to the modern day remarkably fast.

I admit to a certain level of hysterical schadenfreude in reading, when I think of those scholars of history.

...I'm sorry, but I can't help but giggle every time I hear "Ibis the Invincible and his Ibisstick."

Not Etrigan's best rhyming, but hey, whatever works!

-"I shall wake when my princess wakes!"-
"... you mean you're not going to command the wand to just wake her up now? You're just going to shirk your responsibilities, leave this place leaderless in the midst of a violent upheaval?"
"... sure am! Bye!"

Even more baffling since he managed to get it to make her wake up no fuss, so... why didn't he just do that in the first place?
Ah, Golden Age comics. Always full of mystery.

"It only put her to sleep for 4,000 years."

Oh, is that all?

I giggled throughout this entire story. Gotta love Golden Age shenanigans. Thank you so much for posting!
