#53 Martian City in Ruins


All across the planet of Mars, the domed cities lay in ruins. Martian victims were sprawled across the desert sands, many badly wounded and others beyond repair. The advanced civilization had been beaten into the dust under the force of Earth’s violent counterattack. The Martian buildings and mono-rails, which had taken years to build, were all gone. Sinister vibrations and rumbles were continually registered from the interior of the planet. The dangerous atomic pressures were rapidly building up to the climactic point and it was now only hours before the explosion which would destroy Mars. The Earth Army piled into their spaceships and left the doomed planet.
