Synopsis for "The Doomed Batwoman"
Batwoman unwittingly acquires a belt from Tibet that may cause her death, while she, Batman and Robin tackle a super-villain named Star-Man, whose superhuman strength is weakened by the presence of the belt. Later on, the heroes learn that Star-Man is looking to get the mysterious belt in order to collect all of the belt's missing pieces that would grant him super powers. During the last confrontation, Batman and Robin are captured by Star-Man and they are saved by a weakened Batwoman, who risks her life by wearing the belt near the villain in order to make him powerless. The Dynamic Duo break free and they are able to remove the objects that grant Star-Man super powers. Batman then puts the objects back on the belt and Batwoman's strength returns at last. The three heroes resolve to destroy the belt and it's pieces, because its power is too great to risk falling into the wrong hands.

Synopsis for "His Majesty, John Jones"
Two ministers from the tiny European country of Harovia mistake John Jones for their Prince Rudolph, who has been missing for four years and who is a dead ringer for Jones. Jones plays along with them to discover what's going on, especially when he learns that the tyrannical Baron Brujo threatens to take over the country. Brujo attempts to assassinate Jones with a booby-trapped room in the royal castle, but Jones reverts to his Martian identity and destroys the traps. Then he locates Prince Rudolph, who has been in hiding and fearful for his life. Jones convinces Rudolph to lead his troops against those of Baron Brujo. He aids Rudolph with his Martian powers, moving at such speed that he cannot be seen. Brujo surrenders, and Jones is allowed to return to Midtown.
