Synopsis for "Rhino on the Rampage!"Edit
The Rhino’s tranquilizer wears off and he begins another escape from jail seeking out Spider-Man. At the Daily Bugle, Ned Leeds and Betty Brant announce their engagement, but the scene changes to Peter Parker being enamored by Mary Jane at home. A TV bulletin interrupts and announces The Rhino’s escape. Peter realizes Spider-Man must confront him and Mary Jane suggests they go downtown to watch the action. As The Rhino stomps around looking for Spider-Man, he has a flashback of how it all began. Chosen for his muscle and low intelligence, two scientists working for professional spies applied a special rhinoceros suit that bonded with his skin. After the application, The Rhino mysteriously gained intelligence and turned on his creators, going into business on his own. As Peter and Mary Jane reach downtown, Peter slips away to become Spider-Man and confronts The Rhino. As they battle, The Rhino leads him to where innocent bystanders and police are watching. The Rhino’s charge connects with Spider-Man and leaves him woozy and he comes back to finish him. A police officer makes a last second grab for Spider-Man and saves him. The Rhino thinks that Spider-Man is dead and hunts for John Jameson. While cashing in on his photos of the battle, Peter hears about John Jameson being moved to another hospital and thinks The Rhino may attack again. Having picked up a bit of The Rhino’s hide from the earlier fight, Spider-Man brings it to Dr. Curt Connors for analysis. Spider-Man meets The Rhino at the hospital and hits him with reformulated webbing which burns through the rhino hide and is captured. Peter heads home and learns that Flash Thompson has been drafted for the war and that Aunt May is ill, since she hadn’t refilled her medication, due to the cost.

Synopsis for "This Deadly Land!"Edit
Continued from last issue...
Yagg the Invincible attacked them with one of his deadly energy blasts, throwing the two apart. Again, Loki used a stone to escape, flying out of harm's way, leaving his "accursed half-brother, still trapped". Thor then dodged numerous blasts of energy, grabbed a rock and "hurls it - straight and true, with force of a comet, felling the giant Yagg, even as David felled the mighty Goliath many ages before!", hitting Yagg in the head. Thor then pressed onward toward Loki, despite the time for him to gain a sizable lead.
Meanwhile, Loki was "facing a new obstacle, the withering heat of the glowing Boulder Road of Skornheim". He once again used a magic stone, and created a whirlwind around himself to cool him as he moved on. He then found the next danger in his path, a horde of hungry, carnivorous plants. He employed yet another stone, which "contains a repellent which no form of plant life can approach!"
Back on Earth, Jane Foster was trying to evade her persuers, the Enchantress and the Executioner (Skurge). A small group of local citizens briefly tried to help her, but they were subdued by a sleeping spell from the Enchantress. As this took place on the streets, one of Rick Jone's Teen Brigade, tried to sound the alarm, to no answer. The next moment though, Balder the Brave arrived on Earth, atop the Baxter Building, and quickly found and challenged the villainous pair.
Back in Skornheim, Thor braved his way along the Boulder Road, to the carnivorous plants. He then found the river that feeds the plants, and dived in, to avoid them, and tried to catch up with Loki. As he does, they come to a rocky gap over a fiery pit, which Loki uses a stone to levitate over, as Thor grabs him and also crosses the pit. As they get across, Loki senses the fatigue that is taking its toll on Thor, and knocks him off, giving him just enough time to run through the portal to Asgard.
