Synopsis for "Spidey Smashes Out!"Edit

Spider-Man’s arm in a sling, he swings around trying to find The Lizard. The Lizard heads to Dr. Connor’s lab to find a formula to transform reptiles to his personal army. Since his reptilian brain can’t understand Dr. Connor’s notes, he wrecks the lab waking Mrs. Connors and Billy up and goes to find Dr. Connor himself, not knowing they are one and the same. At The Daily Bugle, Frederick Foswell goes to tail Peter Parker but gets assigned The Lizard story by Jonah Jameson. Pete goes to school with his sling, saying he sprained it on his motorcycle, and is ridiculed by Flash Thompson, reassuring Pete that no one will connect him and Spider-Man. Harry Osborn tells Pete that Gwen is having a party for Flash and Pete explains why he hasn’t been around because of his money issues. Harry offers to talk to his father to see if he can get him a job. Spider-Man continues to search for The Lizard and finds him on a train to Philadelphia with a large reptile collection onboard. The Lizard commands a train car filled with reptiles to attack Spider-Man and flees on the train. Spider-Man catches up and leads The Lizard to a freezer car, where he is weakened by the cold. Spider-Man wraps him in a web cocoon to prevent his death and works in Dr. Connors lab to create an antidote before The Lizard thaws. He cures Dr. Connors and heads home but is interrupted in his thoughts by Harry and Mary Jane who he starts to think is way too hyperactive and a bit shallow for his tastes. Pete is frustrated by his responsibilities as Spider-Man since he’s hurt and often breaks dates with friends. Meanwhile, the Connors family wonders aloud how they’ll ever repay Spider-Man.

Synopsis for "Battle Rage"Edit

Continued from last issue...

Knocked out by an artillery blast, Thor revives later to find himself taken in by Vietnamese villagers who have tended for them. Thanking them for their kindness, Thor resumes his search for the stones.

This brings him deep into the jungles of Vietnam, forcing Thor to change into Donald Blake so that he can more easily maneuver through the dense foliage. As he continues his search, he is unaware that Loki is watching, and to the God of Mischief's glee, is wandering right into an enemy camp. When Blake is captured by the Viet Cong, he is taken to their leader who consider him a spy. Blake tries to explain that he's in the region to treat people because he is a doctor, however Commander Hu Sak does not believe him, due to sightings of Thor in the area.

When more villagers are taken in as prisoners it turns out that they are Hu Sak's family, who are upset to find that their long lost brother has joined with the Viet Cong. As attentions are turned toward this reunion-of-sorts, Blake uses the momentary distraction to escape. Getting out of sight, he manages to tap his cane and transform into Thor who resumes his search for the stones.

He finds them hidden in the artillery cash and recovers them, when he hears gun shots. These shots are fired by Hu Sak who murders his parents in cold blood, but realizes at the last minute what he has done and is horrified. When his sister Kim flees, Thor goes to her rescue, smashing up the soldiers chasing her. When they are once again met by Hu Sak who allows Thor to take the girl to safety. In order to repent for his past sins, Hu Sak sacrifices himself by detonating the artillery, killing himself and destroying his base.
