Synopsis for "My Life for Yours!"Edit

Quote1 The way I'm being led to the slaughter, I almost expect to see a lady's white scarf fluttering in the breeze from an overhead branch! Quote2
--Iron Man

Continuing from last issue... After hearing that there are additional complications in Happy Hogan's recovery after being injured during Iron Man's fight with the Titanium Man, the Golden Avenger pays a visit to the hospital where he is being treated even though Senator Byrd has asked Tony Stark to appear before a Senate committee to reveal the secrets of Iron Man's armor.

Arriving at the hospital, Iron Man learns that Hogan has been kidnapped, and he follows the clues to a castle which has been imported into the States from Europe and rebuilt. Iron Man soon learns that Happy's kidnapper is the Black Knight, who is seeking to get revenge on Iron Man over an earlier defeat.

Fighting his opponent, Iron Man's armor soon runs low on power and Iron Man is easily defeated by the Black Knight, who leaves Iron Man for dead in the castle. Iron Man struggles to find Happy, who is still alive but is still at great risk of death unless he gets the medical attention he needs. This story is continued next issue...

Synopsis for "Where Walks the Sleeper!"Edit

Continued from last issue...
Tales of Suspense Vol 1 73 021
While Captain America follows the first of three Sleeper robots awoken by Nazi sleeper Agents, the second one (a giant manta-shaped flying machine) is awoken in the town of Telbeck by the second sleeper agent, who is killed in the explosion that frees the second Sleeper. After trying to stop the second Sleeper, he finds it also is impervious to his attacks. Cap then instead opts to hitch a ride on the flying machine as it combines with the first Sleeper robot and flies off to meet the third and final Sleeper.

As Captain America is forced to jump off the flying combination of the first and second sleeper due to an attack by NATO aircraft, the third sleeper agent secures the device needed to awake the third and final Sleeper robot.
