Synopsis for "Versus the Nazi Super Spy"Edit

As the bombings of Berlin continue, Adolf Hitler begins losing his mind. He orders his agents in the United States to take out American factories in the United States in order to halt the production of more bombs to use against the Nazis.

A radio call goes out to a Nazi spy named Mawbrey who is given orders to steal a new explosive formula from Peter Riker, the inventor of the explosive. Learning that the formula is kept in the safe of his home, Mawbrey and his assistant to steal the formula.

Elsewhere, the Human Torch and Toro get a call from the chief of the FBI asking for them to see him immediately. At FBI headquarters, the section chief tells the Torch and Toro about the new formula and the FBI's fears that he might be targeted by Nazi spies.

As the Torch and Toro race to Peter Riker's home, Mawbrey breaks in and assaults the scientist. Finding no trace of the formula in Riker's home, Mawbrey deduces that it must be in a safe and flees the building to eliminate Riker with a bomb. However, as he flees to his car the Human Torch and Toro arrive. The two heroes fail to stop Mawbrey to blow up Riker's home and flee while the Torch and Toro go to rescue Riker.

Although mortally wounded, Riker tells them that the only copy of his formula is in a safe within Mowbray Chemical Plant -- unaware that the factory owner is really a Nazi spy. Going to the factory, they find that Mowbray is missing, having left the plant after burning his hand. Realizing that the man who burned his hand and went home.

Remembering the spy they fought was burned in the fight, the Torch and Toro race to Mawbry's home. They are led into a trap, sealed in a fire proof box and dumped into a lake from the top of a cliff. When the box hits the bottom of the lake, the impact causes a crack in the box. As the death trap begins to feel the water, the Torch then flames on causing the water to boil. Creating sufficient pressure, the box blasts open, saving himself and Toro.

The Torch and Toro chase after Mawbry and his men, disabling their truck by Mawbry manages to escape. They chase him to the factory where they prevent him from using a bomb to destroy it by tossing a fireball that causes the explosive to explode in his hands killing him. Later, the Torch and Toro are commended for their job while in Berlin, Hitler continues to cower in his bunker under the sound of American bombers.
