How about a little magic, scarecrow?
From Count Alucard to alien presidential candidates to the lord of evil himself, bad guys get away with their shenanigans much longer than they should because your average joe just won't take the simple precaution of seeing what this new person's name might spell backwards!
Anyway, there's a new stage magician on the scene, and Earth scientists are flummoxed, because they can't figure out how he's accomplishing his miraculous tricks.
So, as scientists are wont to do. they reach out to Uranus, and in turn Uranus sends their favorite son, Marvel Boy!
Well, an intensive examination by Marvel Boy provides no help:
Now, if Marvel Boy had simply tried saying the guy's name backwards, the story is over. But he doesn't, so "Emit Erut-Uf" is kidnapped by mobsters, who use him to rob an impenetrable vault. Marvel Boy rescues him, but the magician has decided on a very public bit of revenge:
Anyway, Marvel Boy has figured it out...but keeps his cards close to his vest!
Still, kids--always SPELL THEIR NAME BACKWARDS!! You won't regret it!!
