Synopsis for "The Evil Menace of Electro!"Edit
When the Fantastic Four need a lawyer for the renewing of their headquarter's lease, they send the Thing down to Nelson & Murdock's law office to have them handle the F.F.'s legal issues. Murdock is assigned to the case and Karen loans her photograph of him for programming the electronic alarm devices to admit him into their guarded base. Fantastic Four themselves leave to Washington D.C. to be awarded with an another decoration.
Meanwhile, as Daredevil, Matt Murdock busts up a car thievery ring which was run by the super-criminal known as Electro. A villain then decides to steal Reed Richards's scientific secrets and sell them to a hostile nation. With his electrical skills, Electro easily breaks into the Baxter Building but at the same time, Matt Murdock is coming to examine Fantastic Four's headquarters. With a warning from his super-sharp senses, he changes into Daredevil and battle ensues. Electro gets his revenge by beating the crime-fighter and sending him into the space tied aboard the rocket of Fantastic Four. Daredevil, however, manages to get control of the ship and by "hearing the slight movement of the astro-compass" is able to land it safely to Central Park. To escape the police, he steals a horse to ride away.
Wanting to surprise Electro, Daredevil catches onto the underside of the sightseeing helicopter by his cane's handle and drops to the Baxter Building from the air. Electro flees with Richard's scientific notes via elevator shaft and attach himself to atop of the passing car with electric magnetism. However, Daredevil is able to follow him guided by the electric emanations from Electro's body. They battle inside a movie theatre and the man without fear wins the electric villain by dropping a curtain on him. Police short-circuits Electro with water from the fire hoses rendering his electric powers useless.
Daredevil returns Richards's notes to his vault and later, back in his identity of Attorney Matt Murdock, is visited again by the F.F., who have come to ask about the report about their lease. Hearing that Murdock hasn't done it yet, they decide to hire an another lawyer.
