Magician From Bagdad. Nadir Shan, the young king of Bagdad, is the victim of a plot by his advisor, a sorcerer. But Nadir Shan escapes and finds a “glowing olden jug” which contains a genie. Nadir Shan lets the genie go in exchange for magical powers. The genie, having previously sworn to kill the next person who used him, tries to send Shan into a different time and place. Shan and the genie battle, and the genie wins, throwing Shan into the future of 1990. The traitorous sorcerer sends elementals after Shan, and the elementals go on a rampage before Shan finally defeats them. Shan eventually returns to Bagdad and avenges himself on his traitorous advisor.
