Giant Watery Hand of Gilgana
In the third recorded instance of the Idol-Head of Diabolu unleashing evil in the modern era, a hole opened in the sky that forcibly transported people to the weird world of Gilgana. One such innocent found himself floating in a body of water from which a giant hand formed. A rescuing Manhunter from Mars dived to the rescue, and sand on his body from Gilgana caused an explosive reaction when it came into contact with the water. A new hand soon formed, but the Alien Atlas spirited the man away to land, then formulated a plan to use his discovery against Gilgana.
