Synopsis for "Namor's Flying Bantam Car"Edit

Namor has been searching the midwestern United States searching for subversive activities in the area. Deciding to lure out spies following the news of a new Bantam car developed by the military, Namor would purchase scrap material and use his Atlantean engineering abilities to create an even better version of the Bantom car.

Sure enough, after completion of the device and taking it out for a test drive, it is spotted by Nazi spies who seek to steal it and learn it's secrets. When two spies attack Namor in the woods, he easily over powers them. When they claim to be nothing more than simple thieves Namor lets them go making them think he believes them so that he might follow them back to their base.

Suspecting this, the Nazi spies allow Namor to follow them back to their hideout where they call their commander and leave a misleading message. When Namor is otherwise distracted staking out the house, the two spies steal his Bantom car and speed off. The two spies manage to make off with the vehicle, however Namor manages to follow them back to their masters headquarters. Listening from the chimney, he learns that they intend to disassemble the car and ship it to Salt Lake City so that they might learn it's secrets.

Namor flies ahead and finds the Nazi hideout by posing as an employee of the Census bureau. When he is angrily ejected from the property he waits until the smuggled Bantam car is brought to the sight. There it is reassembled and the Nazi spies bring it to the docks where they intend to ship it to their leader. Namor then makes his move, but despite his surprise attack he is overpowered and taken prisoner.

Brought to the Nazi leader, Namor is questioned about his invention, however the Sub-Mariner breaks free and fights his way through the Nazi forces. Recovering his vehicle, the prince of the deep escapes and gets to a phone where he contacts the authorities and alerts them of the Nazi's location.

Synopsis for "The Revenge of Sphinx Henchel"Edit

A crucial surgery is being conducted on Judge Lind is interrupted when a seeming mad man rushes into the room and distracts the surgeons long enough for Lind to die on the table. With the mad man escaping, the Angel decides to investigate as the entire situation is suspicious. He finds footprints that lead him to unique tire marks for a vehicle that could only belong to a crook named Sphinx Henchel, a racketeer whom Lind sent to jail a number of years ago.

Following the footprints to a garage, the Angel attacks some of Henchel's men as they attempt to change the cars tires. In the melee, Sphinx briefly appears and attempts to shoot the Angel, but only succeeds in grazing the heroes head, knocking him out momentarily. Reviving shortly after, the Angel follows Henchel through a trap door that leads to the sewers and then out to the river. Following after the crook to his hideout, he finds that Henchel has the District Attorney responsible for sending him to jail as his prisoner.

When Henchel's henchmen arrive, Sphinx has the D.A. brought out to the city where they intend to force him to walk out into traffic and into the path of a speeding vehicle to make his death look accidental. The Angel, having followed the crooks, attacks and saves the D.A. from harm. Ironically enough, the car that was supposed to strike the District Attorney would end up swerving and striking Sphinx dead. After the police arrive to arrest the rest of the gang, the D.A. turns to thank the Angel only to find that the hero has already departed.
