Synopsis for "Down the Drain"
Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham, and the Punfisher narrowly escape from Doctor Octopussycat's whirlpool trap by plugging the drain with a nearby toilet plunger. Then, to save time, Spider-Ham skims an issue of Marvel Tales Vol 2 215 to find out on the third page of his story that Doctor Octopussycat is at the city water treatment plant with the plumber hostages.
When Spider-Ham and the Punfisher arrive at the city water treatment plant, they see Doctor Octopussycat suspending the plumbers over the roof of the building. The Punfisher immediately shoots a bazooka at Doctor Octopussycat, claiming "Sometimes the war against crime must claim innocents!" Spider-Ham averts the shot and manages to save the plumbers, whom Doctor Octopussycat flung off the roof. At Spider-Ham's suggestion, the Punfisher uses a slingshot to shoot an electric eel at Doctor Octopussycat's electrically-powered tentacles, overloading his arms and defeating him.
