Synopsis for "Human Torch"Edit

In a slum area of New York the plague has run ramped. With the threat of infection spreading across the city, Dr. Stone insists that the buildings in the area be burned to the ground, however the property owner Frank Simmons refuses to do so as they still earn him a substantial amount of money. When the Human Torch comes to the scene in his facility as a police officer he agrees with Stone even though the act is technically illegal.

Furious, Simmons goes to his underworld friend Roddy Skeets who promises to uses his underworld influences to put pressure on the police to act against the Human Torch. Even though they have issue with attempting to stop one of their own, the commissioner orders some of his officers to put on asbestos suits and arm themselves with air cannons to stop the Torch from burning down the houses. They would attempt to stop the Torch, however he would seek refuge in a burning building and escape. Learning that the plague could possibly spread out of the neighborhood by Dr. Stone, the Torch then decides to quarantine the area by putting a circle of flame around it.

With the medicine needed to treat those infected with the plague out of reach, the Torch flies to the OMC Medical Hospital and convinces the doctors to help cure those stricken by the plague, and escorts them into the quarantine zone. Increased pressure from Roddy forces the police to send in airplanes to try and douse the flames around the quarantine zone, however the Torch destroys the planes, but not before making sure the pilots bail out.

Furious that his money paid to get rid of the Torch didn't work out, Simmons attempts to shoot Roddy but ironically succumbs to the plague and dies. Roddy soon finds that he himself is infected with the plague. Calling for help leads the Torch and Dr. Stone to come to his aid, but it is too late. Before he dies of the plague, Roddy warns the Torch for the head of the rackets, an individual named J.B.

They are brought before the Emperor, however when Namor tries to attack Luther he is taken away.

Deciding to teach the American a lesson, Namor gets Droma's aid to attack their ship the "Colleen". Sneaking aboard, Namor and Dorma capture Lynn Harris -- Luther's lover -- and Namor sends Dorma to bring Lynn back to Atlantis. Namor is soon spotted by the ships guards and escapes by stealing one of their airplanes. Hiding it near the surface entrance to Atlantis, Namor goes back to the ship and sneaks aboard through the chain locker. Inside, Namor sets the explosives aboard to explode and escapes before the ship is sunk, killing it's entire crew.

Meanwhile, Dorma finds that Lynn could not handle the freezing cold of the antarctic waters and places her in a bed to recover. When Namor tells Luther that he has his woman hostage, Luther becomes more determined to escaping. Using a knife and his fellow prisoner using the sharp edge of his pocket watch, they both manages to chisel their way out of their icy prison and free Lynn.

That night, the Raider shows up at the sheriffs house, however his steal is ruined by the barking of his guard dog. When the sheriff comes out, the Raider explains that he has come to offer his aid in solving the string of robberies. Recognizing the Raider, the sheriff agrees to let the masked hero search his house. The Raider finds a clue that tips him off on who the thief is after the sheriff tells him not even his dog alerted him of the theft. He gives the sheriff a plan to follow the next day and departs. Soon afterward, the Raider inspects the old lady's chicken coop and finds exactly what he's looking for and escapes before he can be found.

The next day, the Raider steals the sheriffs new hat in broad daylight, sending him and his deputies after the Raider.

Synopsis for "The Devils of the Mist"Edit

Thomas Halloway (Earth-616) from Marvel Mystery Comics Vol 1 11 0001

Continued from last issue..

Just barely avoiding the fall into a pool of lava, the Angel wonders how he will get out of the subterranean realm that he is trapped in. He is soon attacked by an army of giant ghouls who attempt to capture him. When they finally do, these monstrous giants suddenly stop for a number of hours, as if frozen, before bringing the unconscious Angel to their massive city and tossing him into a dungeon.

There he is revived by a woman who is dressed in clothing commonly found in ancient Greece. She tells the Angel that she has been a prisoner of the creatures for four thousand years. She explains that her people forced them into these caverns and trapped them many years ago, and that she cannot escape as exposure to the sun would cause her to die and decompose instantly. The woman decides to help the Angel to escape. Giving him a special flying costume supposedly worn by Mercury, she tells the Angel that the creatures will become immobilized for a number of hours if they exert themselves too much. When he refuses to leave without her, she assures him that she will find another means of escape.

As the Angel flies away he sees that she did: By walking into the ray of sunlight let in by the hole, ending her long life. The Angel battles with the creatures, causing an earthquake which buries the ghouls and closes the hole to the surface. The Angel escapes by flying through that hole just seconds before it's closed.
