Synopsis for "The Wondrous World of Dr. Strange"Edit

Spider-Man is disappointed to find nothing going on at night. However, a man named Xandu enters a bar-room brawl finding two muscular men daring anyone in there to a fight. Xandu hypnotizes them to feel no pain and give them limitless strength to accomplish their task: to steal the second half of the Wand of Watoomb. We learn that Dr. Strange holds this half in his mansion. As they break in, Dr. Strange tries to distract them but he is soon knocked out. The two henchmen find the Wand of Watoomb and exit a skylight, which attracts the attention of Spider-Man. Spider-Man goes in to fight not knowing their supernatural strength, yet as he’s knocked down, he throws a Spider Tracer on one of the henchmen. Xandu receives the second half of the wand and joins them together. He reveals that with the wand he can create doorways to other dimensions and times, as well as see any place or object he desires. Spider-Man interrupts Xandu’s trying to kill Dr. Strange but starts to disappear to an alternate dimension. Spider-Man realizes this and grabs the Wand of Watoomb realizing its importance. Xandu then sends the two henchmen after Spider-Man. As they fight, Dr. Strange regains his consciousness and follows the track to Xandu’s lair. The two do battle when the two henchmen bring Spider-Man back to Earth. Xandu regains control of the Wand of Watoomb and uses it against Dr. Strange. Realizing he’s overpowered by the wand, he leaves his physical form to his ectoplasmic spirit to aid Spider-Man. At Dr. Strange’s suggestion, Spider-Man grabs onto a wire and shorts out the two henchmen’s hypnosis. Dr. Strange returns to his physical form and fights alongside Spider-Man to trip up Xandu with his webbing and retrieves the wand. The wand is drained of its magical power and Dr. Strange wipes the memory and evil intentions of Xandu.

Synopsis for "The Cobra and Mr. Hyde!"Edit

The weekly meeting of The Avengers, chaired by Thor and attended by Captain America, Iron Man, Giant-man and the Wasp, draws to a close. As the Wasp flirts with Giant-man, Thor comments that Giant-man is fortunate to be able to take the girl he loves with him. The Wasp attempts to question Thor about his love life, but is cut off by Giant-man who reminds her that no personal life questions are allowed.

As Thor leaves the meeting, he happens to see the Cobra hiding nearby and attempts to capture him. By the Cobra uses a cable to throw Thor off balance long enough to escape through a nearby window. The window belongs to the evil scientist Calvin Zabo, who hearing the Cobra drinks the potion that converts him into Mr Hyde. Following a brief battle, the two villains realize that they both hate Thor, and agree to work together to defeat the Thunder God.

Meanwhile Thor reaches his office, where he reverts to his human form as Dr Don Blake. His nurse, Jane Foster, tries to get Blake jealous by asking to leave early for a date. Fearing that she does not love him, Blake wishes her a good time. Jane leaves, convinced that since Blake did not take the bait, that he does not love her.

Mr Hyde demonstrates a Time Reversal Ray which displays a backwards "movie" of the actions of anyone shoot by the ray. He displays the Cobra battle with himself backwards. They plan to use the ray to follow Thor backwards to see where he comes from.

Blake, in his office, hears a news report that Mr Hyde is on the rampage, and as Thor goes after him. Hyde lures Thor to where the Cobra can shoot him with the Time Reversal Ray. They follow the "movie" backwards to where Thor emerges from Blake's office.

Having lost Mr Hyde, Thor has returned to his office where as Blake he laments his hopeless love for Jane. Suddenly the Cobra and Mr Hyde burst through the window and seize Blake, demanding the location of Thor. At that moment Jane returns to the office, only to be seized by Hyde who threatens to harm her unless Blake summons Thor.

Blake tells them to get his walking stick out of a nearby cabinet and to tap it on the floor. It is a signal which all attract Thor. Turning their backs on Blake to watch out the window, Hyde taps the stick and Blake (unseen by them) reverts to Thor.

The villains split and try to escape in different directions. Thor follows the slower Hyde knowing that evidently he will lead him to the Cobra also. Escaping through an auto junkyard, Mr. Hyde leads Thor into a crowded Colosseum exhibiting a Heavy Machinery Show. Hyde believes the crowd will keep Thor from being able to use his magic hammer effectively. As they battle, unseen by Thor, the Cobra uses a huge mechanical arm to grab Thor's hammer and lock it away from Thor.

With only 60 seconds before he reverts to his human form, Thor is attacked by both villains....
