Synopsis for "The Horns of the Rhino!"Edit
Peter Parker is buying a new motorcycle and calls J. Jonah Jameson for a credit reference and he approves knowing he’ll get cheaper pictures. John Jameson is visiting and even though Jonah goes on a tangent about Spider-Man, John expresses his appreciation for Spider-Man since he saved him in the out of control space capsule (in issue #1). John tells his dad that he’s been cleared by NASA recently. After his last space walk, space spores attached to him and NASA believes they may help the USA in the space race. NASA has assigned him bodyguards to prevent kidnapping from competing countries. A giant man in a rhinoceros costume is charging across the Mexican border with bullets ricocheting off, clobbering through anything in his way. Meanwhile, Pete runs into Betty Brant who has just returned. As they talk, they fumble for words and realize their feelings for each other are gone. Pete excuses himself and he sees footage of Rhino. Later on, Rhino reaches New York and after hearing of this, Spider-Man goes to find him. He arrives at John Jameson’s hotel suite to find John kidnapped by Rhino. Spider-Man confronts Rhino and learns he’s been hired to kidnap John. Spider-Man begins to fight him but realizes he can’t fight Rhino head-on as he keeps charging and could easily destroy him. Spider-Man trips and flips Rhino onto his head knocking him unconscious for the police to arrest him. The next day, Pete is going to school on his bike, Gwen notices his new ride and mentions it. As he tells her she’s got a lot to learn about him, they both really notice each other for the first time. Pete comes home and is reminded that he’ll be meeting Anna Watson’s niece, Mary Jane soon and to not miss dinner.

- unnamed policemen
Synopsis for "If this be my Final Battleground"Edit
Continued from Last Issue.....
The reporter Hobbs then goes into the house and taunts him into smashing though the wall, and out of the house. Creel then finds himself surrounded by police, as Thor takes command of them and orders them not to fire. Thor then throws his hammer at him, causing him to absorb its strength and power. Thor realizes that he must not use his brute strength, but instead his power over the elements, and makes a trap of heat around him. Creel absorbs the heat, just as the police fire a grenade at him, which explodes and stuns Creel for a moment. Thor gives him one more chance to stop and give up, while Creel boasts that he is the strongest, and he is about to finish off the Thunder God. Thor waits a moment for a reply, but when none is forth-coming, Thor whirls his hammer faster than a mortal eye can see, changing the air around Creel to Helium, causing him to absorb the properties of that element, and become a gas, and float into the atmosphere, and no longer a threat to humanity. The reporter, Hobbs, then tells Thor that he has realized that he is not the "conceited, costumed, show-off".
The Thunder God then takes off, having to take care of a few things before he is summoned back to Asgard for the Trial of the Gods. He flies back to take one last look at his beloved Jane Foster, for if he fails, it could be his last look at her. As he does so, Odin calls him back to Asgard, "whatever my fate, I shall face it, like a God!".
Appearing in "Tales of Asgard: Heimdall the Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge!"Edit
Synopsis for "Tales of Asgard: Heimdall the Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge!"Edit
- Too long has the Rainbow Bridge remained unguarded! Too many times have our enemies attacked Asgard by crosing its shimmering brilliance! The bridge needs a sentry! And that is why I have decided to appoint a guardian of the Rainbow Bridge! I have selected three warriors--and now I shall choose one of you!
This is the story of how Heimdall came to be the guardian of Bifrost the rainbow bridge. Odin holds a sort of try-out, summoning Heimdall and two other worthy candidates. Agnar the fierce, is the first, and offers him self as having the mightiest chest, the strongest lungs, and that none but he have the power to sound the horn warning, Gjallahorn, as he demonstrates this ability, the "roar reaches to infinity". The second is Gotron the Agile, who claims that his deeds speak for themselves, and that he was nimble enough to defeat seven frost giants at once, when they attacked Asgard "only last year".
The last is Heimdall The Faithful, who shows that he has other useful abilities other than strength "that is a match for any". He proves this by stepping out into Odin's garden and, by placing his ear on the grass, hears the tinniest plant growing in the heart of a place known as the "Hidden Hills", which was scorched by the fiery breath of a dragon. After Odin had dispatched his gardener to verify the tiny new plant just blossoming into life, Heimdall proved himself further. He said that his eyesight is so keen that he "can see across time as well as space!!" He then informs Odin of a "savage band of Storm Giants" marching towards the rainbow bridge, still two days away. Odin then dispatched a heavily-armed war party to meet Storm Giants. The war party returned in days, with the King of the Storm Giants as prisoner. These demonstrations of abilities and noble character earned him the position of "Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge - - FOREVER!"
