The metal Men leap to attack but the Juggernaut is magnetic and they are stuck to the creature which turns out to made of rollers and crushes the Metal Men into discs, Tin manages to escape with Billy as the Metal Men are taken away to the cooking pot along with the rocket.

They are thrown into the pot where the Metal Men fuse into a giant alloy. They emerge from the pot in giant size and smash the Robot Juggernauts into pieces. The rocket ship takes off and Billy's eyesight fades again and he is distraught. Just then the ship passes through the tail of a comet and the metal Men shield Billy from the dangerous radiation. They land on earth and Doc Magnus comes to greet the group and he is delighted when he realizes that the cosmic rays have restored Billy's sight permanently
