Synopsis for "The Molten Man Regrets...!"Edit
Molten Man sees Judge Hizzoner and the Judge takes pity on him and lets him go without any punishment since he has agreed to pay for damage he has caused. Molten Man goes free and shows he has no intentions of going straight. After some planning, he enters into a jewelry store and asks to see the most expensive items for sale. Once they are outside the safe, the owner tries to stop Molten Man but bullets bounce off and the gun is crushed inside his hand. Spider-Man swings around and notices the theft in progress, and not knowing the thief's true identity, is clobbered around and Molten Man escapes. After some deduction Spidey figures that only Molten Man could hit him that hard and crush a gun in his bare hand.
Spider-Man tracks down Molten Man's old house and follows him with a Spider-Tracer to the same jewelry shop he initially tried to rob. Spider-Man tries to catch him in webbing and the two trade punches back and forth. Molten Man escapes but Spider-Man catches up with him at home. Spider-Man grabs a nearby rope and, similar to their last fight, hog-ties Molten Man together and brings proof to the police tying him to the attempted robbery. Peter goes to sell his pictures of Molten Man to J. Jonah Jameson, but finds out that Betty Brant no longer works there. A replacement secretary hands him a self-portrait he gave to Betty signed "To Betty – Forever! Peter", but it ends up in the trash as he realizes both Ned Leeds and her are gone to the west coast and most likely are married.

Synopsis for "The Mighty Thor Battles the Incredible Hulk!"Edit
While flying through the city, Thor happens upon two groups of children arguing over the who is the stronger between Thor and Hulk. Interested in the debate, Thor lands to see what all the commotion is about, and the children ask him if he knows who is the stronger of the two.
Thor recounts for them his last encounter with Hulk however, goes into a part of the story that was not previously recorded.
In Thor's recounting of the events, he and Hulk are separated from the Avengers and Sub-Mariner during their battle. Realizing Hulk's strength, Thor asks Odin to lift the enchantment that forces Thor to change to Donald Blake after being kept from his hammer for sixty seconds so he can pit his strength against Hulk.
Odin grants Thor's wish, giving him five minutes time free of the enchantment that binds his power to his hammer however it makes Thor's hammer vulnerable to damage and able to be picked up by anybody, which causes Hulk to attempt to destroy it, keeping Thor defensive during the battle.
During their combat, the integrity of the cavern Thor and Hulk are fighting in caves in, covering Hulk with tons of rock. About that time the five minutes Odin granted Thor are up. Thor smashes through the rubble to continue his fight with Hulk but found he escaped.
Thor attempts to follow Hulk, but cannot find a trace of him. The test to see who is the strongest is inconclusive. Thor rejoins his comrades and battle Namor, until Hulk arrives again.
Thor stops his story there explaining that there is nothing more to tell, and explains that he has no proof that he is stronger than Hulk and therefore won't make such a claim and flies off. Meanwhile elsewhere Hulk turns his thoughts to Thor as well wondering when next they'll clash.
