Synopsis for Plastic Man: "Presenting the Man Who Can't Be Harmed"

Woozy Winks was a nobody who was in the right hour and right place: He saved a wizard from drowning. As reward, the wizard imbued him with a power which would protect him of any damage. Hit himself with a hammer would don't cause any damage and even trees would grow from the soil to protect him. He begun to use this ability to make money, but in a wrong way. He soon begun to steal and destroy all Homer Twitchel busts that he could. Plastic Man wouldn't be able to get Woozy because his new found power; Then he assumed his alter ego (Eel O'Brian) to convince him to form a gang (awaiting, of course, to know who was manipulating the crook behind the scenes). Woozy would not accept O'Brien until he could give some proof of experience, and then Eel committed a two-week crime-wave, only to call his attention. Convinced, Woozy explains that they will steal the Twitchel busts from a museum, and Plastic Man tell everything to the police, who will try to organize a ambush for catch Woozy (and O'Brien, who they don't know be Plastic Man). The duo is successful to get the busts, even with the police ambush, due Woozy's power. After break the statues, Plas is still curious about the meaning of everything and trails Woozy until the Mire Mansion. O'Brien realizes that Woozy was contracted by a rich man named Mire to break the busts. It would increase the value of Mire's own Twitchels. But Mire refused to give any pay by Woozy's last work after learned by the radio that the broken busts were fake ones (replaced by plaster copies by the police). When Plastic Man tries to arrest them, Mire call his black panther named Blackie; By assume Mire's form, Plastic Man orders the animal to come back to its lair, and punches Mire. After some more demonstrations of Woozy's power, Plas appeals to his good sense, and convince him to surrender to the police. At the police station, Plastic Man delivers Woozy and all the money that Eel O'Brian stole during those two weeks of crime waves, but the Captain Murphey wants he arrest Eel O'Brian.

Synopsis for The Mouthpiece: "The Human Bomber"

A tank factory seemed to be getting bombed in air raids; it was built next to a steep mountain, which had an old forgotten mountain cable-chair lash-up, rigged down the side of it and across the valley. Two German saboteurs, Von Drule and his assistant, were using this apparatus to drop bombs on the roof of the factory.

Late that night, District Attorney Bill Perkins puts on his black mask and becomes the Mouthpiece, and prowls the mountain looking for clues. He finds the cable-chair equipment, just as Von Drule, with a bushel of small aerial bombs, gets ready to swoop down for another bombing run. He's got a good head start when the Mouthpiece shows up, shoots the assistant in the head, and reverses the machinery, interrupting the "human bomber's" deadly stunt, but Von Drule cuts the chair free, and slides away very rapidly. The Mouthpiece, using a horseshoe hooked over the cable, pursues the out-of-control chair down the mountain cable. Mouthhpiece overtakes Von Drule, and tussles with him, dumping the load of bombs out, over an empty open space, then dumps out the saboteur himself, to hit the ground, unconscious enough for Officer Clancy to arrest him.
