Synopsis for "Where Darkness Dwells, Dwell I!"
Both Thor and Hercules have returned to Earth, but while Thor flies overhead, Hercules hears a cry for help. He rushes to it, only to see an old man attacked by a robber. Hercules chases him down, only to return just in time to see the old man kill himself. A police detective tells Thor and Hercules about how several people have gone insane lately and killed themselves. Hercules storms off by himself, but is captured by a mysterious shadowy figure. He later manages to barely return to Thor, only to collapse in front of him.
