Synopsis for Superman: "Eterno the Immortal"
This story is reprinted from Action Comics #343.
The Superman Revenge Squad found a towering ancient Super-Robot named Eterno the Immortal, constructed a billion years ago by an extinct race called the Xan. It languished in the center of the Earth, paralysed by the rays of an element called Absorbium. The fifty-foot tall robot had super-strength, super-intelligence, and was indestructible; and the Revenge Squad believed that it had powers beyond even Superman's.
They freed Eterno with a Cyclo-Ray and unleashed their unwitting comrade from a volcano to set it against the Man of Steel. Eterno wreaked great destruction upon Metropolis as it fought Superman to a standstill. The Superman Revenge Squad flew their spacecraft too close and gloated; which resulted in Eterno discovering that it was being used.
Eterno ignored Superman, and trained Destructo-Rays on the Revenge Squad's craft. As the Robot came to smash them, they fired Absorbium rounds at it and paralysed Eterno; and its carcass fell on their starship and killed them all.

Taking up a job as an insurance adjuster in a town in northern Washington, Hal Jordan is sent to check and see if there are any bogus insurance claims due to a meteor crashing in an area of lumber stocks that are insured by the company.
Checking things out as Green Lantern, Hal finds a giant named Thotan who has come from the planet Nabgor to steal Earth's oxygen for his home planet. Using his power ring to grow to the same size as Thotan, Hal tries to battle the creature hand-to-hand and easily defeats his foe. Carrying his opponent back to the planet Nabgor, Hal warns any of the people there to never attack the Earth again.
Returning to his civilian guise, Hal advises his boss that there are no bogus claims going on up in the forest.

Synopsis for Wonder Woman: "The Human Charm Bracelet!"
This story is reprinted from Wonder Woman #106.
Wonder Woman is spending the day in her civilian identity as Lt. Diana Prince, working for Military Intelligence. She notes that the date is June 19th, but she can't seem to recall why this day is so important.
Meanwhile, on the distant Planet G, home to a race of giants, this world's version of the Olympics are in progress. One giant, Tooroo, wins the contest and is allowed to take any prize he wants. He selects the planet Earth, and the judges tell him that he can only take the planet if he manages to defeat Earth's champion, Wonder Woman. As he enters his rocket, his lover Rikkaa asks him to bring her back something nice from the planet Earth. As Tooroo rockets towards the Earth, he wonders what he can possibly bring his lover as a gift.
While back on Earth, Steve Trevor is called to action in front of Military Intelligences headquarters, when two spies attempt to escape by helicopter. With Steve out of sight, Diana changes into Wonder Woman and lends a helping hand. As she rounds up the spies, she is unaware that her mother Queen Hippolyta is watching from Paradise Island, wracked with fear as the 10:00 hour approaches.
Later, when Tooroo arrives and begins collecting Earth objects to be part of a giant charm bracelet, that he intends to give to Rikkaa, Wonder Woman and Steve attempt to stop the alien marauder, but end up being captured themselves, due to the failure of Wonder Woman's weapons. When Wonder Woman attempts to escape, she remembers why June 19th is such an important date: On this particular date, her weapons would lose their magical abilities for 24 hours at 10:00.
They are knocked out and taken back to Planet G, where they are made part of the charm bracelet that Tooroo plans on giving to his beloved. When Wonder Woman and Steve revive, Wonder Woman wonders if the 24 hours have elapsed so that her items have their powers back. Keeping this quiet, Wonder Woman challenges Tooroo to an Olympic challenge to win her and the Earth's freedom. Tooroo, being the champion of his world and thinking Wonder Woman to be powerless, accepts the challenge.
