Awakened by robbers, the mummy Ishtar walked again. Hercules set out to find the mummy with Ishtar's descendant, Princess Anuket. But the evil Sokar was also after the mummy. Sokar acquired the mummy's powerful golden pendant known as the ankh from Salmoneus and prepared to take over the Egyptian throne with the unwilling Anuket at his side. But Sokar was killed by the mummy, who absorbed his life force and grew to enormous size. Hercules defeated the mummy by giving the wrappings a mighty yank, unraveling the corpse. The skeleton clattered harmlessly to the ground. (source: www.tv.com)
