Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Mystery of Room 406"

Kent Nelson responds to a medical emergency by scaling a half-constructed skyscraper and treating an injured construction worker, then climbing back down while carrying the man. Nobody seems to find this amazing or suspicious.

Later, the hospital where Dr. Kent Nelson works as an intern has been infiltrated by gangsters running a protection racket, in which patients in Room 406 are treated with a death-mimicking poison gas then pronounced dead. The "dead" patients' families are then shaken down for their insurance money while the patients act as hostages. The gang has two hide-outs, which Fate is able to find by using his Crystal Globe and his Magic Ring. The first of these at the bottom of a lake, and there Dr. Fate is momentarily trapped while it's being flooded, but Fate opens a tank of welding gas and fills the room with it then detonates it with a match, cracking open the hideout and escaping.

Their second hideout is a helium balloon, but Doctor Fate quickly finds and invades this, and busts the gang, while gang-leader "the Frog" escapes via parachute. Returning to the hospital, having deduced his identity, Fate confronts Dr. Marsh and yanks off his very distinguished-looking fake whiskers; he turns out to be the Frog, and he's busted too.

Synopsis for The Spectre: "Crimes that Bloom in Spring, Tra-La"

Out in the countryside, a gangster grows flowers which give off a potent smell, causing people to hallucinate. He delivers these flowers to various banks. Once the flowers bloom, and give off their dizzy scent, he and his gang easily rob the places while the police are passed out on the floor. The Spectre and his sidekick, Percival Popp, Super Cop nip the crime spree in the bud by investigating the gang's farmhouse and uprooting their plants.
