Quote1 I'm the best caretaker this aquarium ever had! I've got a a way with fish, and they know it! That's why I decided to call myself the Eel when I embarked on my career of crime! Because I'm as slippery, and as dangerous as the electric eel! Quote2

Synopsis for "The Return of the Eel!"Edit

Learning that the Eel is about to be released after serving his time, the Torch flies to the prison to warn the warden to lock the Eel back up. The warden tells the Torch that the Eel has served his time and is free to go and the Torch watches helplessly as the Eel is allowed to leave.

Knowing the Eel is up to no good, the Torch is there when the Eel attempts a number of crimes, each time the Eel bests the Torch with some mechanical device or another. Realizing that the Eel must be hiding out at the local aquarium, he battles him there. The Eel gains the upper hand at first having coated himself with a flame proof oil, however the Torch gains the upper hand when while attempting to feed the Torch to the aquariums shark, the oil rubs away allowing the Torch to use his flame powers and easily best the Eel and turn him back over to the authorities. Afterwords, his colleagues in the Fantastic Four give Johnny a present: His very own aquarium with fish.

Synopsis for "The Many Traps of Baron Mordo!"Edit

Using a miniature replica of Dr. Strange's house Baron Mordo creates a magical trap that transport Strange and his home into an unknown dimension. Seeking the spell's source Dr. Strange travels in ethereal form to the home of Baron Mordo where he falls into another trap, a bottle like prison. Mordo arrives at the Ancient One's house only to discover that Strange has reached there before him. Mordo's magical prison had no floor. By descending downwards through the Earth Strange had eventually weakened the spell enough to break free. In the following magical battle Dr. Strange's good powers defeats Mordo's evil ones.
