Synopsis for "In the Clutches of the Kingpin!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Amazing Spider-Man #51

Unaware that Spider-Man is back in action, the Kingpin is about to begin his takeover of the city, and his first target is silencing the negative press he's getting from the Daily Bugle, and so he demands that J. Jonah Jameson be silenced.

Frederick Foswell comes to the Kingpin to join his group when news of Spider-Man's return comes to the Kingpin in a violent way: Big Turk, a rival for control of the rackets comes bursting in challenging his leadership. The Kingpin makes easy work out of Turk and quells all descent in his ranks. As Spider-Man busts up one of the Kingpin's safehouses, the Kingpin sends men to kidnap J. Jonah Jameson.

Jameson is brought to Kingpin's headquarters where he learns what his fate will be and that he's been betrayed by Foswell. When Spider-Man tracks down the Kingpin's hideout, he smashes through the window to come to Jameson's rescue. The Kingpin fights Spider-Man one-on-one, and gains the upper hand, using gas hidden in his tie pin to knock the wall-crawler out. Kingpin then tells his men to execute both Spider-Man and Jameson.

Synopsis for "The Prince and the Power!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Tales to Astonish #89

Continued from last issue...

With full control over the alien Servo-Robot, Attuma orders it to attack Atlantis and destroy the Sub-Mariner. The robot manages to smash through the gates of the underwater city and easily fights off the Atlantean army, prompting the Sub-Mariner to swim into action. Try as he might, Namor cannot seem to damage the gigantic robot.

With a frontal assault a failure, Namor calls upon the creatures of the sea to come to his aid. First sending a pod of sharks after the robot, then ordering a giant whale to try and swallow the robot, and not even an army of octopi are able to stop the massive robot.

When all seems lost the robot is suddenly captured in a transparent dome and pulled to the surface. Namor and Dorma swim up to see what has captured the robot and see that it's alien masters -- having noticed it's absence from their ship -- have come to collect it and leave the Earth without further incident.

Namor then returns to his kingdom where he witnesses Attuma fleeing following this defeat.
