4D Man (1959)
The Evil Force
Master of Terror

Nomination Year: 2004
SYNOPSIS:  Two brothers work together, and end up developing a device to amplify the power of the mind. Or perhaps to cause a person to enter a fourth-dimensional state. It's not entirely clear. The older brother tests it on himself (spurred on, at least in part, by the younger brother hooking up with the older brother's girlfriend). He then discovers that he ages whenever he uses this ability, and goes off on a crime spree.

Worst Science

"He Intermingled the Atoms Using Only...the Power of His Mind"
The younger brother explains, as best he can, the theory by which his machine operated, and which caused a pencil to pass through (and commingle with in a non-explosive fashion) a block of Cargonite (the toughest substance in the world).
