Synopsis for "Where Strides the Behemoth"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales to Astonish #67.

Continuing from last issue, the Hulk confronts the Communist tank battalion that has been ordered to capture him. Making short work of their tanks, the Hulk then escapes, jumping farther East in great leaps and bounds before stopping to rest in Mongolia. There the Hulk stops in the mountains to rest, and in his exhaustion reverts back into Bruce Banner.

He is awakened some time later by Kanga Khan, a Mongolian bandit chieftain. Banner explains his situation, and that if they can get in touch with other Americans they will be rewarded for returning him to the States. Realizing that Banner could be potentially worth a large sum of money, Kanga Khan agrees.

Word reaches the United States and Major Talbot is sent to retrieve Banner from Kanga Khan. Arriving in Mongolia, and meeting with Khan, Talbot demands to see Banner before making any payments. While Talbot confirms that the bandit does indeed have Banner as his hostage, a band of other thieves plot to kidnap Banner and ransom him off themselves.

Attacking the village, the rebels outnumber Khan's men and he orders them to run to the hills. Talbot and Banner manage to escape together, however when in the mountains they are pinned in one spot by enemy fire. Just then the path they are standing on gives way and both men are sent falling down the cliff.

Synopsis for "The Return of the Blob"

This story is a reprint of the comic
X-Men #7.

Professor Xavier takes a photograph of his students during their graduation. Afterward, he informs them that they must continue their fight against evil mutants without him, while he takes care of some unfinished business. He tells his students that he will select a new leader from amongst them soon.

Cerebro (Mutant Detector) from X-Men Vol 1 7 0001

First appearance of Cerebro

Across town at another mansion, the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants regroups. Mastermind and the Scarlet Witch are the first to arrive. Mastermind offers the Scarlet Witch a life of luxury, but she refuses since she cannot stand him. Magneto and the rest of the group arrive.

Back at the school, Professor Xavier asks Cyclops to accompany him to a previously off-limits section of the school. There he shows Cyclops his invention, Cerebro, which is used to detect mutant brainwave activity. Cyclops wonders why a telepath such as Professor Xavier would need such a device, so Professor Xavier informs him that it is intended to be used by the new leader of the X-Men, Cyclops. Cyclops questions his mentor's decision, considering Angel's aggressiveness and Beast's intelligence, so Professor Xavier informs him that it is because of Cyclops' leadership abilities. The next morning, the X-Men awaken to learn that Professor Xavier has already departed. They congratulate Scott on becoming their new leader. The group goes to New York City that night to celebrate, but Scott refuses, saying that he has to stay and monitor Cerebro.

At a carnival, Magneto seeks out the Blob, suspecting that he is a mutant, due to his inability to be moved by an elephant or a cannonball. Magneto tries to perform a mind probe of the Blob, but is stopped by a mental block put on him by Professor Xavier.[2] Suddenly the Blob's manager appears and tries to fend off Magneto, not wanting him to talk to his client. Magneto orders the Brotherhood to attack the carnival workers. They all run off, leaving Magneto alone with the Blob. Magneto orders the Blob to join the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

At first the Blob refuses and attacks Magneto. Magneto then magnetically lifts pipes from under the ground, hurling the Blob through the air. The force of impact from landing loosens the mental block in his mind, and his memory returns. Wanting revenge against the X-Men, the Blob agrees to join the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

At the mansion, Cerebro's alarm suddenly goes off, alerting Cyclops to the Blob's recent activities. Cyclops tries to contact the rest of the X-Men, successfully reaching Warren. Warren gathers Hank and Bobby so they can meet back up with Scott and Jean.

Magneto challenges the X-Men to a fight at an abandoned factory. Cyclops' leadership skills quickly show, as he leads the X-Men in successful counter attacks to everything that the evil mutants throw at them, including missiles. With the X-Men standing together, Magneto fires a second round of missiles at the group, even though the Blob is standing next to them.

The X-Men hide behind the bulky villain and let him take the full force of the missiles. Magneto orders the rest of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to retreat, seeing that his plans have failed. The X-Men offer to help the Blob, since his teammates abandoned him. The Blob refuses, telling them that he's fed up with fighting other people's fights, and that he just wants to return to the carnival.

This story is a reprint of the comic
Daredevil #6.

Witnessing a break-in of a bank, by Ox and the Eel being filmed by a movie crew, Daredevil's senses tell him that it's really a cover for a real robbery. When DD gets into a fight with both the Ox and the Eel he is shot at by their employer: Mr. Fear, who's fear pellets cause Daredevil to experience pure fear and is compelled to flee the fight.

As Daredevil resumes his civilian guise and news spreads around town about the event, we meet Mr. Fear's true identity, Zoltan Drago, who's hideout is in a wax museum. He recounts the events that led him to discover his fear gas and the invention of his costumed identity of Mr. Fear, and how he recruited the Eel and the Ox to become members in his Fellowship of Fear. Returning to the present, Mr. Fear gathers his cohorts together to figure out how they will destroy Daredevil.

Opening the wax museum with a new display, showcasing Daredevil, Matt, Foggy and Karen go to check out the display. During the viewing, both Foggy and Matt notice the presence of the Ox in the museum. While Matt returns as Daredevil, Foggy arrives for his own investigation and walks in on Daredevil fighting the Eel and the Ox. Foggy is injured during the fight, and DD is forced to flee again to bring Foggy to a hospital. There he alerts Karen to the accident and meets her at the hospital as Matt Murdock.

Changing back into his guise of Daredevil to watch over Foggy, he stops the Fellowship from attacking Foggy in the hospital forcing them to flee. The Fellowship returns to the wax museum where Daredevil is waiting for them, pretending to be his own wax statue, and fights all three Fellowship members, and defeating them all and turning them over to the police. As Matt Murdock, DD returns to the hospital to see that Foggy is all right and later Foggy is discharged from the hospital.
