Synopsis for Dial 'H' for HERO: "The Mummy With Six Heads"
A man dressed as a mummy with an elaborate headpiece mask robs a charity event. Robby Reed goes into action using his H-Dial to become Magneto, a hero with magnetic powers. Robby battles the mummy man, but he is forced to rescue a busload of trapped people, allowing the crooks to escape. Magneto visits police headquarters and identifies the crook as Joe Beket from police photos. Robby is then able to find Beket's apartment and gain clues to the crook's next robberies. When Beket tries to steal a painting at the pier, Robby is there to stop him as Hornet-Man. Unfortunately the supernatural powers of Beket's headpieces allow him to escape again.
When Robby is tipped off to Beket's next target he uses the H-Dial to become Shadow-Man. This time despite Beket's incredible powers, Robby is able to defeat his foe and render him powerless.

Synopsis for Martian Manhunter: "The Unmasking of Marco Xavier"
On the trail of two missing scientists, J'onn J'onzz (as Marco Xavier) meets with Marie Fouchere, one of Xavier's old girlfriends, who delivers him into the hands of Vulture agent Abba Sulkar and his henchmen. Sulkar subjects "Xavier" to a process that drains his memories and encodes them on tape. After reporting to Faceless via closed-circuit TV and learning that Xavier is their trusted ally, Sulkar views the tape himself and learns that "Xavier" is really the Martian Manhunter. Meanwhile, Marie, who is really an agent of the French secret service, restores Manhunter's memories to him after helping him escape. J'onn J'onzz secretly assumes his Martian identity and battles Sulkar and his men. Sulkar accidentally destroys himself with a disintegrator weapon.
