When Pop starts searching for the story's source, a professor named Pertwee, he lands in the middle of the story of the century after the Empire State Building, Grant's Tomb, and Grand Central Station all disappear. Apparently, Pertwee's the mastermind behind it all. But Pop soon discovers that, instead of inventing a new way to blow things up, the professor may be doing quite the opposite.
