Synopsis for "Kra Vashnu"
Plastic Man and Woozy attended a performance of the mind-reader Kra Vashnu. Impressed that he was the real deal, Plastic Man wanted to ask him to assist the F.B.I. on cases, but found Vashnu over the body of his murdered lover Diana. To avoid suspicion Kra faked a suicide attempt, and later told Plastic Man that he suspected Harry Edmonds, who was actually the man Diana was going to run away with. Plastic Man found Edmonds dead, and although it looked lire a suicide He deduced that Kra was the culprit. He made a very public show of exposing Kra as a murderer, so the villain went into hiding. He kidnapped Woozy, but Plastic Man knew it was a trap so he sent a fellow F.B.I. agent disguised as him. Kra locked him in a carwash where the water nozzles were loaded with a solvent to dissolve Plastic Man, but the agent was unaffected. Plastic Man arrived, but couldn’t capture Kra because he could anticipate his moves. Plastic Man thought about Woozy having a gun and having the drop on Kra, frightening him, and allowing him to knock Kra Vashnu cold.

Synopsis for "Where Is Amorpho?"
Plastic Man and Woozy were sent to a salt factory that a supposed lunatic had broken into so he could consume vast quantities of salt. The guard swore the perpetrator was Woozy, so Plastic Man was forced to lock him up. The culprit was actually Amorpho, an alien capable of assuming the shape of anyone he encountered, but who needed to consume salt to survive. Plastic Man found Amorpho, who escaped, disguised himself as Plastic Man, and stole more salt. Both fought until Plastic Man was able to force Amorpho to surrender. Amorpho agreed to return to outer space, and Woozy was freed, but only forgave Plastic Man after his friend treated him to ice cream sodas.
