Synopsis for "Firesword!"

Thor has followed the Absorbing Man to Vermont, which is just beginning its Halloween celebration. Thor manages to defeat him by knocking him into the lake, where he absorbs the properties of water and begins to flow away. But then, Loki arrives, who has by mystic means transformed two dogs to kill Thor. Thor defeats the dogs, then Loki summons the Firesword. Thor manages to defeat Loki with a lightning strike, which has the side effect of blinding him. Later, Thor seeks out his female companions, but discovers that Sif left with Karnilla to search for Balder.
