Synopsis for "To Free a Brain Slave!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Strange Tales #143.

While S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ is in the hands of Mentallo & The Fixer, and Fury a helpless prisoner, Dum Dum & his men prepare to strike back! Tony Stark takes command as the technos prepare his "Neutralizer". The ESP Division are unable to pick up any trace of Fury's thoughts. The baddies attach a miniature H-Bomb to Fury's wrists, then remove the mind-control mask. Big mistake-- as Fury immediately begins thinking of an old war song, which acts as the "go" signal. After a burning chemical forces the baddies to remove their protective helmets, they come under attack by the ESP Division. While Fury holds out, Stark's Neutralizer dissolves the H-Bomb! Mentallo & The Fixer fight to escape, but are quickly captured, with the help of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "Metronome Unit". It's revealed that the ESP attack has destroyed Mentallos' powers, and that Fury was wearing a "Mental Transmitter" to contact them. But elsewhere, a jet takes off from The Heli-Carrier-- but is quickly shot down by a flying golden egg.

Synopsis for "The Day of the Druid!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Strange Tales #144.

A mysterious villain called The Druid, using "mystic rites" to disguise "modern, sinister science", sends another deadly flying egg, to kill Nick Fury! Meanwhile, at the crash site of the downed jet, Fury races thru the fire to shut down the plane's nuclear reactor before it can explode and take out half the countryside. Dugan refuses to enter the "Mobile Fallout Shelter", and waits for Fury. On the road in his Porsche 904, Fury & Dugan are attacked by the egg. The car dodges a flame-thrower, strikes back with a "Borer-Bomb", then falls victim to plastic self-forming tank traps. As the car flips over, its "Air Sacs" activate, then Fury uses its jet fans to fly away and land safely. The pair finally use "Grenade Guns" to take out the offensive omelet. Back at the S.H.I.E.L.D. barber shop, clean-cut new recruit Jasper Sitwell has a hard time convincing the barber he's really a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
