Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "The Confederation of Hell"

Satan assembles Ibac, Sabbac, Master Man and Darkling on a dismal plain to dispose of Kid Eternity and the Marvel Family. The heroes are on a hike when it gets uncommonly dark. Realising Darkling is responsible, the Marvels try to transform, but the darkness is so intense no light can penetrate. Having been given the power to see in the stygian darkness, Master Man puts his hand over Kit Freeman's mouth before he can transform. Billy Batson tricks Sabbac into conjuring a flaming light and Kit uses it to burn the gag from his mouth and say his magic word. Turning to his spirit form he summons Zeus, who brings along three Shazam bolts for the Marvels. Ibac, Sabbac and Darkling are defeated, but Master Man summons four gods of evil.

Synopsis for Superboy: "The Legion of Super-Heroes"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #247.

One day, Clark Kent is shocked when two young people identify him as Superboy, and later while out on patrol they finds a girl who outs him as Clark Kent. Superboy is shocked when the three teenagers reveal themselves to be members of the Legion of Super-Heroes, a group of super-teens from the 30th Century. They introduce themselves as Cosmic Boy, Lightning Boy, and Saturn Girl, and they have come to the 20th Century to offer Superboy membership into the Legion.

Taking him to the 30th Century aboard their time sphere, Superboy is then put through an initiation for membership into the Legion. As part of the initiation, Superboy must complete super tasks before members of the Legion can beat him to the punch. However, the Legion members manage to beat him every time and at the end of his trail, Superboy has failed in all three missions he's been sent on. After Superboy is visibly upset by being rejected for Legion membership, the Legion members surprise him by telling him that the entire contest was fixed so that Superboy was destined to fail, and the entire ordeal was only initiation, as the Legion had already decided that he would be a member.

Returning to his native 20th Century, Superboy shows off his medallion to Pa Kent, who congratulates the boy on his recent success.

Synopsis for Aquaman: "Sorcerers of the Sea"

This story is reprinted from Aquaman #40.

Aquaman and his family are sleep-drugged and Mera is abducted, but not before Aquaman attempts to save her and is knocked unconscious by a man wearing a five-sided ring on his hand. Aquagirl finds Aquaman, Aqualad, and Aquababy and revives them. Thus, Aquaman and Aqualad begin a quest to find and recover Mera. The two heroes come upon an underwater medieval-style city, which is ruled by a group of magicians called “the Sorcerers” and whose queen is a dead ringer for Mera. When Aquaman attempts to snatch the queen, he and Aqualad are taken captive, and Aqualad gets a sword wound in his arm. Aquaman breaks both of them out of jail and gets Aqualad back to Atlantis, where he is hospitalized. Then he returns to the medieval city, fights past a sorcerous guard, and breaks into the Queen's private chambers. But Aquaman quickly determines that the Queen is not Mera, only a look-alike with differently-colored eyes, and leaves to begin the quest for Mera anew.

Synopsis for Superboy: "Prisoner of the Super-Heroes"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #267.

Superboy is shocked when his friends from the Legion of Super-Heroes have appeared in 20th Century Smallville, and are doing their best to upstage and beat Superboy in saving the day, solving crimes and stopping menaces. This eventually causes everyone to turn against Superboy; even his adoptive parents and his pet Krypto turn their backs on the Boy of Steel.

Superboy decides to travel to the 30th Century to find out that what the Legion is up to. Arriving in the future, Superboy is shocked to find that there is now a Superboy planet, an entire world that is dedicated to honoring him. However, when the Legionnaires return to their own time, they capture Superboy and imprison him in a Kryptonite cage, telling the Boy of Steel that they consider him a criminal.

Explaining, they tell Superboy that they created a monitoring device to view the past to help construct their Superboy planet, and they saw Superboy destroying US military vehicles in his not-too-distant future. Therefore they have come to the conclusion that he is a criminal. However, the Boy of Steel manages to break out of his cell and shows the Legion on the monitor why he destroyed those vessels: Under special orders of the President of the United States, Superboy was ordered to destroy the vessels in order to cover up the transport of a top secret gas so that it cannot fall in the hands of foreign spies.

With everything sorted out, the Legion goes back to the past and explains everything to everyone, reinstilling people's faith in the Boy of Steel.

Synopsis for Spectre: "War that Shook the Universe"

This story is reprinted from Showcase #60.

James Corrigan has been working as a detective for the last 20 years, but he has not been able to feel the presence of his astral alter-ego, The Spectre until a fateful day during a seance in which he took part. The release of mystic energies allows Spectre to be released from Corrigan's body and as soon as he is back in the world, Spectre prevents several crimes that would harm his physical host.

Once again, Jim Corrigan is able to speak with The Spectre, who reveals that he was unable to get out of his body because there was some mystic force acting upon him. Afterwards, Spectre goes all over the world to locate the source of the energy that trapped him in Corrigan's body and he eventually locates the source to a man called Paul Nevers.

Spectre is forced to remain inside Corrigan by the mystic energy and Jim locates Nevers without effort, as the man has been committing crimes all over the city. When Nevers finds himself cornered, the the devil Azmodus reveals himself as the dark being that has taken possession of Nevers' body. Spectre then confronts Azmodus and they take the fight to the Astral Plane, where Spectre manages to lock Azmodus after a terrible cosmic battle. During the struggle, Spectre learned that Azmodus locked Spectre in Corrigan's body, as Earth couldn't stand the presence of two such powerful beings such as them at the same time. With Azmodus unable to escape the Astral Plane, Spectre returns to Earth, where he continues his long forgotten career with James Corrigan.
