Synopsis for The Spectre: "Terror at Lytell's"

Jim Corrigan is summoned to Lytel's department store, which has been threatened by Bentley, a wholesaler. A bomb causes a portion of the ceiling to collapse. The Spectre prevents any injuries, then leaves in search of Bentley. Corrigan questions Bentley, who denies involvement in the explosion. When Corrigan leaves the office, Bentley sends his men to kill the detective. The Spectre grabs the car full of these badguys, and listens to them beg and whine for a minute, then crushes the car in his fist, with them all in it. He then prevents a hi-jacking by another gang of Bentley's men. Finally, when Bentley tries again to bomb Lytel's, the Spectre sets the crooks up for the police to apprehend.

Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Search for Wotan"

Doctor Fate wants to find out what happened to the soul of Wotan, after defenestrating him in their earlier fight. With Inza by his side, Fate travels into the Underworld. They traverse beyond the Seven Gates, into the region of dead souls. They encounter the essence of Wisdom who tells Fate that the evil sorcerer has escaped his doom, in some way, and still lives.

Doctor Fate and Inza return to Earth by way of the Ferryman across the River Styx. At first The Ferryman doesn't want to convey them, but Fate threatens him with incineration. Afterwards, Inza and Fate discover that Wotan is insane and creating a device that will destroy the entire world, using devices designed to alter the planet's electrical field. Fate uses his magic to communicate with a great eagle, who points them in the direction of Wotan's remote lab, in a distant mountain range.

As they enter, Wotan throws a switch intent on blowing up the Earth. Doctor Fate counters the effect with his magic, then punches Wotan twice in the jaw, knocking him out. He places him into suspended animation and leaves him in an air pocket buried deep in the Earth.
