Episode Summary

EDIT
Return of the Pharaoh (1)
AIRED:
PART 1 Narrator: "The Coptic Eye-- the sacred mystic symbol of the ancient Egyptians. But the great Pharaohs, for whom it was so important, are all gone-- with one regrettable exception." In their secret lair, gazing at a replica of the Coptic Eye, are Electra Woman and Dyna Girl's old nemeses: The Pharaoh and the notorious Princess Cleopatra. The Pharaoh says that with the Coptic Eye's extraordinary powers, he could rule the world. The Coptic Eye is buried deep in the main chamber of King Tut's pyramid in Egypt. However, entrepreneur Mr. McLintock has recently spent billions of dollars to have the entire pyramid brought, stone by stone, 6,000 miles from Egypt to just outside the city, as a tourist attraction. By coincidence, Lori and Judi, ace reporters for Newsmakers magazine, are interviewing Mr. McLintock at this very moment. Due to an ancient curse, the tourists stopped coming-- now Mr. McLintock plans to "seal up the pyramid forever." Just then, Lori and Judi get a signal on their Electra-comps -- they are being summoned back to Electra Base by Frank Heflin, on a matter of urgent importance! At Electra Base, Frank tells our superheroines that Crime Scope has detected The Pharaoh in the area. Dyna Girl says, "Electra-wow!" Frank has also developed a new attachment for their Electra-Comps, a night-tracking device which he named Electra-Vision; it can "turn night into day." Our heroines punch it up with a bypass. Bright, dazzling light floods the room. Dyna Girl says, "Electra-blinding! Wow!" Cleopatra cuts in on the Crime Scope monitor with a broadcast; she tells them of the Pharaoh's plan to steal the Coptic Eye. It's a trap, of course-- but our brave heroines decide to use the opportunity to trap the villains. Our heroines speed to the pyramid in their Electra-Car; their Electra-scan reveals footprints of the Pharaoh and Cleopatra going inside; the door is open, even though the pyramid is supposed to be sealed shut. The villains lure our heroines into a dead-end chamber. Then the exit door closes, trapping our heroines inside. A 20-ton rock slab descends from the ceiling! Even at full power, the Electra-beams can't stop the rock of death! Electra Woman and Dyna Girl put their hands over their heads-- they push on the rock, but it keeps coming down! Back at Electra Base, Frank quickly figures that if he can eliminate certain Crime Scope functions, he can redirect more energy to their Electra-beams. Our heroines are down on their knees! Now they are laying flat on the floor, and the rock of death keeps descending! Finally, with the giant rock just inches above their heads, the extra power diverted to their Electra-beams pushes the rock back up to the ceiling! That was close! The Pharaoh and Cleopatra go to the main chamber; behind a secret panel, they find the Coptic Eye, which the Pharaoh then wears as a ring. Electra Woman and Dyna Girl catch up to the villains; Electra Woman puts a Force Shield around the Pharaoh. But using the Coptic Eye's hypnotic power, the Pharaoh hypnotizes Electra Woman, and makes her put the Force Shield on Dyna Girl! With our heroines helpless-- Electra Woman hypnotized and Dyna Girl in a Force Shield-- Cleopatra releases some deadly asps!!! (continued next week)moreless
