Synopsis for "To the Death!"Edit

Continued from last issue.

Returning to Atlantis, Lady Dorma and the Sub-Mariner find themselves confronted by the Behemoth, a giant creature that has broken free from it's prison below Atlantis and is now on a rampage through the ocean. Unknown to them the creature is under the control of exiled Warlord Krang who is using a puppet created by the Puppet Master to control the beast. Namor sends Dorma ahead to Atlantis while he battles the monster.

As the Sub-Mariner struggles in battle against the Behemoth, the puling Puppet Master reminds Krang that he would allow him to go unharmed if he gave him a puppet to control the creature. Finding the Puppet Master beneath him, Krang angrily dismisses him. This proves to be his undoing as at that moment Namor summons electric eels to shot the Behemoth. This shock transfers back to the doll, causing a jolt of electricity that makes Krang drop the puppet breaking it and relinquishing his control over the gargantuan beast.

While the Behemoth is distracted, Namor swims around the creature as fast as possible, luring it to the Quagmire of Doom where the monster sinks to it's apparent demise. As the Sub-Mariner heads back to his kingdom, Krang arrives there before him and confronts Lady Dorma. Showing her the useless puppet of the Behemoth, he bluffs her into believing that he is still in full control of the creature and that if she wishes Namor to live, she is to leave with him to get married at once. Not wishing harm to come to her true love, Dorma agrees and leaves.

Before going she contacts Lord Vashti to tell him that she is leaving to marry Warlord Krang, but doesn't explain why and terminates the video call. This leaves Vashti to tell Namor the bad news when he arrives from his successful battle against the Behemoth.

This story is continued next issue...

Synopsis for "They Dwell in the Depths!"Edit

While hiding out in the desert, the Hulk is suddenly teleported into the subterranean laid of his old foe Tyrannus. Tyrannus has reverted into an old man due to his inability to access the Fountain of Youth which is currently occupied by his foe the Mole Man. When Tyrannus asks the Hulk to help beat the Mole Man, Hulk refuses.

Hoping to get the Hulk to cooperate, Tyrannus kidnaps Rick Jones, Glenn Talbot, and Betty Ross. The Mole Man prepares to strike at his foe with his octo-droid. When Tyrannus tries to coerce the Hulk into his doing his bidding by showing him his prisoners, Hulk isn't interested as he considers all who have been captured as the people who hound him. When Betty mentions Banner's name, the Hulk goes on a rampage.

During said rampage, Rick and the others are freed and the Mole Man attacks with his octo-droid. The battle carries Hulk and the robot to the Fountain of Youth and the battle ends with both plunging into it followed by a large explosion. The end result destroys the Mole Man's robot and changes the Hulk back into Bruce Banner. Banner wanders out of the Mole Man's lair wondering how long he will remain human.
