Synopsis for "Where Flies the Beetle...!"Edit

Abner Jenkins is released from prison after serving his sentence and he plots his revenge on The Human Torch who last sent him there. Johnny Storm reads the newspaper and decides to find him before it's too late but can't find him much to the annoyance of Dorrie, his girlfriend. Johnny then has to promise her not to flame on for 24 hours or else it's over. After some jealousy and relationship drama ensues, Pete decides to rile up Johnny Storm by making Dorrie swoon over Spider-Man as well. Yet as he reaches her house, he runs into the Beetle and begins to fight when he sees his intentions aren't for good. Dorrie sees the fighting and calls Johnny but Johnny sees it as a trick to get him to flame on. The Beetle snatches Dorrie as bait for The Human Torch and Spider-Man gives chase. Johnny shows up at her house just to humor her, and sees the house is a wreck and realizes Dorrie was telling the truth after all. He chases off after Spider-Man figuring that he was involved. The Human Torch decides to fight Spider-Man instead of hearing him out and only realizes the truth when he sees the Beetle flying nearby with Dorrie in his hands. The Torch and Spidey work together in cornering the Beetle in an abandoned housing complex and once wrapped up in webbing is ready for the police.

Synopsis for "The Lava Man"Edit

After saving a jet pilot, Thor returns to his office as Dr. Don Blake to speak to his nurse Jane Foster. He wants to confess his love for her, but realizes he can not until he reveals his identity as Thor. So he goes to Odin asking permission, and it denied.

As news of the approaching Lava Man spreads through the city, Loki (watching from Asgard) laughs because it is he who release the volcanic creature.

Meanwhile, Jane informs Blake that she is leaving and taking a job elsewhere. She can not remain were her feelings are rejected. Forbidden by Odin, Blake is unable to stop her.

As the Lava Man finally reaches the city, he claims the city for his Lava Men tribe. But Thor appears ready to stop him. The Lava Man melts his way into the tunnels underground, and causes eruptions all around Thor. But the Thunder God uses his thrown hammer to drive the Lava Man back above ground. The Lava Man encases Thor in lava, but he is able to break free by summoning a lightning blast from his hammer.

When the Lava Man converts himself to a pillar of stone to try to crush Thor, Thor conjures a whirlwind with his hammer and sweeps the Lava Man to distance volcano and drops him in. He then seals the top to imprison the Lava Man and end his threat.

Back at his office as Blake, he finds Jane and her new employer, Dr Bruce Andrews, waiting for him. She is angry that while the Lava Man was menacing the area, Blake had not even bothered to check on her safety. She leaves with Dr Andrews, as Blake laments as Thor must live out his days alone.
