Synopsis for "In Mortal Combat with... Sub-Mariner!"
The Sub-Mariner, in order to deal with his restless people (and the goading of Warlord Krang), appears on the surface world and forces his way into the law office of Nelson and Murdock in order to seek the audience of a lawyer. Namor seeks to sue the surface world for its exploitation of the sea, however when Murdock explains how ridiculous the notion is, Namor goes on a rampage across the city.
Donning his brand new Daredevil costume, Matt goes after and battles Namor in order to convince him to turn himself over to the authorities to answer for the damage that he's done. Although Namor wins the fight, he admires Daredevil's courage in facing the monarch of the deep, and so Namor turns himself over to the authorities.
However, as the court case starts, Lady Dorma arrives to inform Namor that Warlord Krang has started an uprising in Atlantis, however, when Namor tries to leave the authorities to try to keep him from getting away. Murdock manages to talk Namor out of fighting and to follow the law, Namor decides to comply for 24 hours. However, when the wheels of justice are unable to turn fast enough for Namor, he breaks out of jail and in spite of Daredevil's attempt to stop him manages to escape into the sea in order to deal with the uprising in his native land.

Synopsis for "Back from the Dead"
Talbot and Banner are falling to their doom after making their escape from Mongolian bandits. The fall causes Banner to change into the Hulk, who saves Talbot (who was knocked unconscious by the speed of the fall.) On the ground the Hulk decides he wants to go home and so he jumps all the way back to the States, leaving Talbot behind. While the Hulk is returning home, the Leader is plotting his next attempt at capturing the Hulk, by shrinking his Humanoids down to microscopic size for easy smuggling.
The Hulk arrives back in New Mexico and seeks refuge inside Bruce Banner's home. Falling asleep, the Hulk changes back into Banner, who awakens sometime later to find General Ross, Betty, and an entire army in his room. Banner is quickly arrested.
Days later, having been rescued and returned home, Major Talbot addresses the President with his concerns that the Hulk and Bruce Banner are in league with Communists, not knowing that the President was informed of the Hulk's true identity by Rick Jones. The President informs Talbot that the Absorbatron on Astra Island is ready for testing again and that he and Bruce Banner are to go back and test it again. While the arrangements are being made, the Leader flies over Astra Island and dusts it with his microscopic Humanoids.
Meanwhile, in jail again, Bruce Banner is visited by Rick Jones who is also beginning to question Banner's loyalty to his country. Talbot then arrives to take Banner to the test site, but first rails him for leaving him behind. Angered by the idea of leaving Talbot to die, Banner almost loses control of himself, but Rick manages to calm him down before he can change into the Hulk.
Arriving on Astra Island, Banner and Talbot enter the control room of the Absorbatron. As they are doing so, the Leader orders the Humanoids to grow to their natural size and seize the two men. Talbot tries to hold off the Humanoids but is easily knocked out. The Humanoids then attack Banner, prompting his transformation into the Hulk. The Hulk, however, is quickly subdued by knockout gas. With the Absorbotron and the Hulk soon to be in his hands, the Leader turns his ship around to collect his prize...
