Synopsis for "Carnival of Death"Edit

The Human Torch and Toro decide to take a vacation to Calm Lake and enjoy the ski hills in the area. However, their vacation is cut short when they spot a skier being murdered by a knife throwing lunatic. Chasing after the killer they note that he is horribly scarred and try to capture him. The killer causes an avalanche burying the two heroes while he makes his escape. Freeing themselves from the snow, the only clue the Torch and Toro can find is a matchbook for a hotel that is sponsoring a nearby carnival, and that the man who was murdered was Price one of the co-owners.

Going to the hotel they interview the carnival co-owner Mr. Howe and ask him if his carnival has any enemies. Howe would tell how years ago he and his partner Price owned a vaudevillian theater that included knife thrower Jimmy Mack as one of the act. When a fire in the building would leave Mack horribly scarred, Jimmy vowed to get revenge against Howe and Price after suspicion of arson was ruled out. Deemed to be insane Mack would be locked up in a nearby insane asylum. Calling the asylum they would learn that Mack had escaped. Attacked by what appeared to be Jimmy Mack, the Torch and Toro would fail to capture him and would find Howe wounded with a knife.

However, upon finding the same book of matches on Howe, the Torch would deduce that Howe was really the one responsible for the murders. Howe would confess explaining that he helped Mack escape and locked him up in his cabin and forced Mack to teach him how to throw knives. Then with a lifelike mask cast to look like Jimmy, he murdered Price to take over the carnival. Howe would attempt to flee the two heroes, however he would be caught when he would attempt to race across an frozen lake and the Torch and Toro would melt the ice. Going to Howe's cabin, they would find Jimmy chained up and he would explain that he was forced to teach Howe to throw knives and all he wanted to do was return to the asylum and get help.

Synopsis for "The Strange Case of the Malay Idol"Edit

When Colonel Carter is heading to Singapore with some secret documents he would charge Steve Rogers and Bucky to accompany him on the plane being piloted by Lieutenant Conroy. As they are flying over the Malay Archepellago they would suddenly crash in the ocean. Making it to a nearby island alive, Steve and Bucky would spot Carter being taken prisoner by the local natives and would go into action as Captain America and Bucky to rescue him. Attacking the tribes men, Captain America and Bucky would be captured by the tribes people as well and the trio would be taken to their master: Lieutenant Conroy.

Conroy would reveal that he is really a Nazi spy named Kurt Mueller who killed and replaced Conroy to get at the secret files and that the local Daka tribe on the island worshiped him and the Nazis as a god. Captain America and Bucky would break free and during the fight, Captain America would knock Mueller into a fire pit sending him to his death. Before the angry tribes people could overwhelm the three Americans, the Navy would arrive with guns blazing and send the natives fleeing into the jungle.

When Keen Marlow pays a visit to his female friend Florence von Ward he finds that her home has been ransacked. A Nazi official gets the drop on Marlow and explains to him that Florence has been arrested and taken to a concentration camp as a means to force her uncle Professor Herman Berg to use his scientific skills for the Nazi cause. Changing into the Destroyer, Keen knocks out the Nazi soldier and rushes off to rescue Florence and her uncle.

Meanwhile, at the concentration camp, Nazi officials threaten to torture Florence if Herman does not agree to create bombs that carry the black plague to use against Britain. The Destroyer would attempt to rescue Herman, but would be knocked out by a gun butt to the head. Taken to the Bavarian Alps, the Nazis then toss the Destroyer off a cliff in order to eliminate him. Regaining consciousness the Destroyer would survive the fall and learn from a sheep herder the location of the Nazi base.

Tracking it down, he would fight his way through it's defenses and free Florence from the dungeon. The Destroyer would learn that Herman was forced to complete the bombs and that they were to be flown from a nearby village to attack Britain. Sneaking out of the Nazi base, the duo would arrive in the village where the Destroyer would see Hitler himself overseeing the operation.

Before the Nazi plane can take off for it's bombing run, the Destroyer replaces the vials of the black plague with a letter saluting the British people.

Synopsis for "The Ghost Fleet"Edit

Reading a newspaper about a supposed Nazi ghost fleet that materialized out of thin air out at sea, the Sub-Mariner decides to investigate. Upon closer inspection he finds that the "ghost fleet" is nothing more than a series of movie projectors that project the image of Nazi battleships on a large canvass while the real threat comes in the form of nearby Nazi U-Boats that torpedo the British fleets they encounter.

The Sub-Mariner wrecks the operation, exposing it to Allied Forces after rounding up the Nazi agents and sending them off in a life boat to be taken prisoner.
