Synopsis for "The Sinister Shocker!"Edit
Spider-Man, with his arm still in a sling, is perching on a building when he’s shaken off. Inside, he runs into The Shocker, whose vibro-shock units on his hands create strong punches and vibration waves that knock Spider-Man off-balance. Spider-Man’s punches are deflected by his vibrating body and he escapes. As Peter Parker walks to The Daily Bugle to sell The Shocker pictures, he’s met by Harry Osborn. Harry tells Pete his dad is paying for an apartment closer to school and invites Pete to move in. After Pete gets cash from Jonah Jameson, Frederick Foswell follows him as Patch, hoping for a connection with Spider-Man. The Shocker returns to his hideout and remembers the origin of his powers. Arrested for robbery, he created a fool-proof safecracking tool that vibrates loose any safe and used it to escape from prison. He created a costume that absorbs feedback and added a battery unit for power. Peter picks up Aunt May at the train station and tells him that Mrs. Watson invited her to move in, which works since Peter wants to move out too. Peter goes to change into Spider-Man in an alleyway when he’s almost caught by Patch. He fakes a conversation between Peter and Spider-Man about pictures and sends a dummy Spider-Man off to prevent Patch getting any suspicions. Hearing reports of tremors near the Federal Reserve, Spider-Man confronts The Shocker inside. After battling and dodging vibration blasts and falling concrete, Spider-Man finally webs up the vibro-shock thumb triggers and knocks out The Shocker. He takes pictures of the capture and returns home ready for the big move for Aunt May and himself. When he reaches the new apartment, he’s shocked at the size but also an odd feeling of depression and wariness that Peter can’t place.

Synopsis for "To Kill a Thunder God!"Edit
Having save the life of Kim, the sister of a Viet Cong general, he brings her to a US military base in Vietnam for protection before leaving for a private place to check and make sure that all the mystical stones that he has come looking for are there. Loki however, has been manipulating events drawing a crooked and abusive explorer to stumble upon Thor and knock him out with sleeping gas and take him hostage, hoping that he could ransom Thor off for money.
This explorer has been in the region investigating strange and out of place Norse artifacts and soon deciphers their inscriptions to find that they unearth a long buried Asgardian tomb. Playing right into Loki's hands, the explorer enters the tomb and finds the Destroyer, an ancient suit of enchanted armour. Loki then uses his magic power to transfer the explorer's soul into the armour bringing it to life.
When Thor revives later, he is advised by the natives of what had happened and tracks the explorer back to the tomb where he finds the man's inert body. He is soon attacked by the Destroyer, and Thor finds that his strength and hammer have no effect on it.
