Mr. Mind's Venusian Code

Mr. Mind Mister Mind's never-ending plot for global conquest always starts small. The world's wickedest worm is able to communicate with other worms using his Venusian language. Unfortunately for the Marvel Family, Mind's language is unintelligible to the average human. Fortunately, writer Jerry Ordway and DC Comics took pity on its readers by exposing the nefarious worm's language via a secret decoder card.
Mister Mind Decoder Card Give-away Mister Mind's decoder card was a Power of Shazam! giveaway. By sending in a self-addressed stamped envelope to DC Comics, editor Mike Carlin would personally send you a decoder card. Sadly, the offer is over but you can see the card right here!

Meanwhile, as Captain Marvel investigates a lost space crew on a mission to Venus, he discovers an even greater invertebrate threat. Fawcett and all of Earth will fall before the wriggling might of thousands of creepy Venusians unless Cap and you can decipher the messages in issues of POWER OF SHAZAM! So what are you waiting for—you've got the decoder card... start decoding and save the planet!!!!

Just in case you didn't want to bother decoding the Power of Shazam! issues where Mister Mind spoke in his native language, the Marvel Family Web has done it for you! Just scroll down the page!
