Synopsis for "Bloody Talons of the Feathered Fiends!"
With a series of mysterious fires at various munitions factories across the city caused by the Vulture, one of his agents Boris begins to talk to the authorities. When the Vulture learns of this he sends his pet vulture Nikki to kill him. The bird attacks the man as he leaves a local bar. His screams of pain are heard by the Human Torch and Toro who find the bird gouging out the mans eyes. When the bird flees, the Torch sends Toro to follow after it while he can see what he can learn from its victim. Fatally wounded, Boris warns the Torch about the Vulture and his flaming eggs before dying. With no idea what Boris was talking about the Torch can only wait for Toro to return.
Toro meanwhile, follows Nikki back to the Vulture's hideout where the bird warns its master that it was followed. When Toro enters the building, the Vulture knocks him out. Just then, the Vulture's assistant Mongo enters telling him that the scientist named Novall they kidnapped refuses to make more incendiary eggs. The Vulture orders Mongo to bury Toro alive while he goes to deal with Novall.
Confronting Novall, the Vulture explains to the scientist that he has learned how to duplicate his process of creating incendiary eggs and has no use for him. He prepares to kill Novall by pushing him head first through a grinding stone, but the scientist begs the Vulture to stop promising to do whatever he asks.
Meanwhile, the Torch begins to worry about Toro and begins looking for him. At that time, Toro awakens and finds himself buried alive. Although the air in his shallow grave is limited he tries to flame on to melt his way through. Although his flame is too weak to do so, it does make the ground begin to glow red hot alerting the Torch to his location and allowing the hero to free his partner.
The two then race to the Vulture's lair where they attack him and Mongo. During the fight, the Vulture tricks the Torch into flying into a mixture of cement and asbestos. With his flame snuffed out the hero is easily knocked out by the villains. Elsewhere, Toro frees Dr. Novall and fends off Nikki with his flame powers.
Looking for the Torch, Toro believes his hero to be dead, but the Torch is really just stunned and soon comes out of it. The two then follow the Vulture to the uppermost part of his hideout and find it is filled with birds of prey that he has sent off with incendiary eggs to blow up more defense plants. While Toro goes off to stop the birds, the Torch chases after the Vulture and Mongo, causing the villains to fall into their own cement/asbestos mix where they sink and drown. Shortly after Toro returns after killing all the birds, thus ending the threat of the Vulture.

Synopsis for "Kioto, the Mad Jap!"
On a Japanese occupied island on the South Pacific, Captain Kioto is in charge of keeping American soldiers who are prisoners of war. He tortures them and then has their dead bodies air dropped over a nearby American military outpost. When one of the natives complains about the Japanese ringing on a promise to provide them with guns, Kioto shoots him dead. As the sixth body lands on the American base the source of these bodies is a mystery to military command who estimate it will take months to locate which island the soldiers are being held prisoner on.
While on guard duty, Steve Rogers witnesses as a spear strikes a tree and finds a crudely drawn map pointing out which island the Japanese are on. Steve goes and wakes up James Barnes and the two change into Captain America and Bucky to investigate in order to insure that American soldiers are not being led into a trap.
Arriving by boat, Captain America and Bucky find the natives waiting for them and learn that they were the ones who informed them of the islands location. Captain America and Bucky then lead the natives on an attack on the Japanese soldiers, but they are soon overpowered and taken prisoner. Cap and Bucky are brought before Kioto who decides to kill them outright and float their bodies back to the American base as a warning and then has them tied to a tree by their arms to await execution. Left alone, Cap tells Bucky to start screaming for help. When a Japanese soldier comes to see what all the commotion is, Cap wraps his legs around the soldier and snaps his neck. Removing a knife, Cap uses it to cut himself and Bucky free from their bonds.
Hiding out in an ammunition hut, they soon find that the captured American soldiers are hidden beneath it. When all Japanese soldiers leave the area, the two go down to tell the soldiers to allow the Japs to take their next victim so that their guard is down when they stage a jail break. When the Japanese take the next American soldier to be tortured, Cap and Bucky return with weapons for the others and they stage a break. They save the American soldier and when Kioto arrives in his car, Cap and Bucky take it and flee with the soldiers to one of the other huts. There they radio the American base and order an air strike while they fight their way through the Japanese.
They load up Kioto's car with explosives and sends it running into the Japanese soldiers causing a massive explosion. While the American soldiers flee in a boat, Captain America and Bucky flee in a Japanese bomber while the Americans air strike the island killing all the Japanese. When Captain America and Bucky land at the American base they are thanked for their efforts. They then slip away to change back to their civilian identities and run right into Sgt. Duffy who for a moment believes they are Captain America and Bucky, but quickly dismisses the idea as too ridiculous to consider.
