Synopsis for "The Sinister Six"Edit

This story is reprinted from Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1.

Having broken out of prison, Dr. Octopus gathers Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, the Vulture and Sandman to get revenge against Spider-Manas the Sinister Six. Meanwhile, Spider-Man has once more found that his spider powers have faded and has to exercise more caution getting back home, lest someone take advantage of his lost powers to find out his secret identity.

As Peter wanders the city lost in thought over all the stress caused because of his Spider-Man identity, he doesn't go to school. This prompts the school to call his Aunt May. Worried about Peter, she goes to Betty Brant for help, and they, in turn, see if J. Jonah Jameson has seen Peter recently. This makes them a target for the Sinister Six, who have decided to use Betty Brant as bait to lure Spider-Man, and so they kidnap both Betty and Aunt May.

Peter arrives at the Bugle just in time to see the Vulture delivering a message to Jameson. The Vulture tells him that the Sinister Six has gone to six different locations and at each location has a clue to the whereabouts of Betty and May. While super-heroes all over the city try to find Spider-Man, Peter decides that powers or no powers, he's going to save his Aunt May and Betty from his enemies.

At the first location, the local power plant owned by Stark Industries, Peter faces Electro. During the fight, he realizes that his powers have returned. He easily defeats Electro and learns the next location. When Iron Man arrives to offer help, Spider-Man refuses.

His next fight is with Kraven the Hunter who attacks Spider-Man in Central Park with three tigers. Spider-Man easily fights off the attackers and secures the next clue. Along the way, the Human Torch offers help, but once again, Spider-Man refuses. His next location is controlled by Mysterio, who sends robots based on the X-Men to attack the wall-crawler. Spider-Man easily defeats the robots and Mysterio. The next clue is set ablaze, but Spider-Man recovers its contents with his web-fluid.

His next battle is against Sandman, sealed in an airless room. Spider-Man defeats Sandman with his superior lung capacity. Next, he battles the Vulture high over the city and defeats him as well, gaining the location of Dr. Octopus, who has been holding Betty and May hostage. May, completely oblivious to her situation, believes they are Octavius' houseguests.

Spider-Man battles Octopus and his mechanical arms. Their fight takes them to a giant fishbowl, where Octopus battles Spider-Man in his "natural habitat." Spider-Man defeats Octopus by filling the tank with his webbing and tangling Octavius up. Spider-Man frees Aunt May and Betty Brant. Returning to his civilian guise, he meets up with them as Peter Parker. Aunt May remains upset with Peter over his skipping class. Jameson is once more made a fool, when he has to publish a story about how heroic Spider-Man is, and as for the Sinister Six? Forced to share a prison cell, the villains squabble among themselves.

Synopsis for "The Day Loki Stole Thor's Magic Hammer"Edit

This story is reprinted from Journey into Mystery #92.

Neri, the hand-maid of Frigga, Queen of Asgard, passes Heimdall the guardian of the Rainbow Bridge that connects Asgard with Midgard (Earth). As he challenges her to identify himself, he remarks that she might be Loki trying to sneak past him. From nearby, Loki watches, chained to a tree by Odin, and snarls that he will yet get vengeance on Thor.

On Earth, as nurse Jane Foster leaves Dr Blake's office for an errand, she passes a wounded jewel thief and his two partners. They enter Blake's office and demand treatment. Distracting them, Blake taps his cane and transforms into Thor. Strapping the criminals to an operating table with surgical tape, he attaches it to his magic hammer and "throws" the criminals to the police station. He returns to the form of Blake just as Jane returns to the office.

One week later, Thor is helping with the filming of a Viking movie. He pretends to defeat a sea serpent while conjuring up a thunderstorm. Loki, watching from Asgard, uses his magic to magnetically attract Thor's flying hammer to his uru chains, breaking them and setting him free.

Thor turns to Odin for help in finding his hammer. Transported to Asgard, Thor sets off in search of his hammer. When Loki uses his magic to attack Thor with giant trees, Thor makes a wooden hammer and fights them back. Next Loki sends a dragon against Thor. The Thunder God uses his finger to etch an imitation of his hammer from a nearby stone and drives back the dragon.

Realizing that the stone from which he made his imitation hammer is uru, the same magical metal used to forge the original, Thor throws the hammer. He hopes the same magnetic forces which drew his real hammer will also draw the imitation. He follows the flying hammer to his own magic hammer, laying in the fragments of Loki's chains.

Informed by Thor of Loki's escape, Loki is quickly recaptured by Odin, Heimdall and Frigga.

Back on Earth, Dr Blake prepares to use a rubber hammer on a patient's knee. As Jane assures the patient Dr Blake is skilled with using a mallet, Blake thinks to himself that she does not know the half of it.
