Synopsis for "The Enforcers!"Edit
The crime boss Big Man has gathered a group called the Enforcers in order to strong arm all the other gangs in New York to work for him. When the other mobsters refuse, they are beaten into submission by Ox, Montana and Fancy Dan. Meanwhile, Peter visits his Aunt May in the hospital and is told that she needs a blood transfusion. He's worried that his radioactive blood would have an adverse effect on his aunt,and he is pressured into participating in the transfusion.
Later as Spider-Man, Peter busts some crooks working for the Big Man. When Jameson is on the scene, he demands that the police also arrest Spider-Man, because he suspects that Big Man and Spider-Man are the same character, and Spider-Man's aiding the law is just to throw the police off. Returning to the Bugle, he demands writer Frederick Foswell to say as much in the Bugle's paper. When Foswell reminds Jameson that when the last time the Bugle reported that Spider-Man was also doubling as a costumed villain (Electro), the Bugle ended up looking bad when it turned out to be false.
When Betty Brant gets off work, she is confronted by the Enforcers who are coming to collect a loan from her. Peter tries to get involved and allows the Enforcers to push him around not wishing to reveal his identity. When Peter tries to find out what was going on Betty flees.
Deciding to deal with the Enforcers and Big Man, Peter constructs a giant spider's web complete with a giant spider in order to scare a crook stool pigeon into revealing the location of Big Man's secret hideout.
His battle with the Enforcers ends with the Enforcers retreating. When Spider-Man sees J. Jonah Jameson on the scene, he begins to suspect that Jameson might be the Big Man. Peter later finds that Betty is not answering her phone, and later at the Bugle he learns that she has quit her job.
Peter decides to deal with the Big Man with a new plan: The next day at school, he starts bragging about how he's figured out the Big Man's secret identity hoping that word would get back to the Big Man. Sure enough, it does and the Big Man sends the Enforcers to capture Peter. Locked in a cell, Peter changes into Spider-Man and breaks out of his cell. He then battles Big Man, the Enforcers, and their hoods.
The Big Man escapes during the fight, but Spider-Man is more than convinced that Jameson is really the Big Man. Going to the Bugle building to expose Jameson, he finds Jameson yelling at Foswell about the story he wrote when the police burst in and reveal the Big Man is Foswell, who shows that he pulled off the identity with padded clothing that made him look bigger. After Foswell is taken away by the police, Jameson admits to himself that he hates Spider-Man because he represents everything that he is not. While Peter returns home to find that there is still no word from Betty Brant, Betty sits alone in a small town in Pennsylvania wishing there was some way she could get Spider-Man's help.

Synopsis for "The Mighty Thor vs. The Executioner"Edit
While Blake was in Europe, a revolution started in San Diablo, between a communistic fraction and a democratic fraction. Because of the fighting, there was a shortage of medical help in San Diablo, and several American doctors, including Dr. Donald Blake (with his trusty sidekick, nurse Jane Foster), agreed to go there to help out. However, the evil Executioner, leader of the communist faction, did not want the peasants to be treated. He wanted them to remain ill, so that they would be too weak to oppose the communists. He thus sent five fighter planes to blow up the ship carrying the doctors and medical supplies from America. Blake turned into Thor and destroyed the planes, which prompted the Executioner to send the commander of the pilots to the firing squad.
The Executioner then sent his armed forces to hunt down and kill the doctors. Thor fought off all attackers, but then the soldiers captured Jane Foster, forcing Thor to back off. The communists fawned over Jane, until Blake arrived demanding her release. Angered over Blake's commands, The Executioner stole his walking stick and ordered Blake in front of the firing squad. However, Blake goaded the Executioner into fighting him man to man, snatched back his stick and transformed into Thor. As Thor fought off the attacking communists, the army of the Democratic Faction arrived, causing those cowardly commies to flee. Realizing his defeat was imminent, the Executioner stole the gold from the treasury and attempted to flee. The other communists recognized him as a traitor and placed him in front of their own firing squad. They then realized that the Americans were their friends all along, and every was happy. Blake then treated and cured all of the sick peasants, and of course, no one suspected any connection between he and Thor (although Jane wished Don could be more brave and adventurous like Thor).
