Synopsis for "Plastique Is Another Word for Fear!"

This story is reprinted from Firestorm (Volume 2) #7.

A Canadian terrorist named Andre sits atop a fuel tower somewhere in southern New Jersey. He is armed with a bomb and threatens to destroy the station and himself unless the energy industry agrees to remove all of their financial interests from the Canadian province of Quebec. The super-hero known as Firestorm arrives prepared to take the terrorist down. Martin Stein warns him against mocking the criminal's intentions, but Ronnie believes that the man is bluffing. He quickly learns however that he isn't. Andre detonates the bomb and the fuel facility is consumed in a massive explosion. Firestorm flies towards the pinnacle of the blast radius and begins absorbing as much thermal energy into his body as he can. He successfully keeps the damage contained to a small area. News crews and journalists crowd the scene and everyone begins assaulting Firestorm with a barrage of questions. Initially Firestorm plays up to the cameras until he realizes that one of the reporters is his own father, Ed Raymond. Nervous, Firestorm quickly flies away.

Some time later, Ronnie Raymond visits his father at the New York News Express office in Manhattan. He tries to have a conversation with the man, but Ed is too preoccupied with the recent terrorist attack to pay any attention to him.

A Canadian terrorist known as Plastique enters the Express offices. Plastique had been in league with Andre, and now operates to further a similar cause. She is armed with several palm-sized detonators that she has attached to the sides of her costume. She holds the entire news crew hostage, and threatens to blow up the building unless her demands are met. She informs the news crew that they have until 10:00 pm to remove their paper stock from Quebec-based paper mills or else she will kill everyone. Ronnie is prepared to change into Firestorm, but is concerned about exposing his secret identity in front of his father.

Meanwhile, Professor Stein sees footage of Plastique's attack on a television news station. He races down to the New York News Express office and sneaks into the maintenance closet. He shuts down all of the power in the building, allowing Ronnie and he the opportunity to change into Firestorm without risking their respective secret identities.

Firestorm manifests in front of Plastique and manages to clear the room out. Plastique throws one of her bombs towards him and he uses his molecular restructuring powers to phase his father and another reporter through the floor. The bomb detonates and Firestorm absorbs the brunt of the blast. He then uses his powers to make Plastique's costume disappear. Her supply of bombs drops harmlessly to the floor and she is quickly apprehended.

Synopsis for "Haven!"

This story is reprinted from Detective Comics #514.

Maxie Zeus has escaped from Arkham Asylum and he goes away through a snowy area, closely followed by Batman. Zeus and his thugs drive their vehicle off the road, forcing Batman to change directions quickly, but the conditions of the area prevent the Batmobile from turning in time and Batman falls to a chasm and lands on a soft snow area while the Batmobile is destroyed. Batman falls unconscious and he is soon found by a mysterious man, while Zeus and his thugs become stranded a few miles away.

When Batman recovers, he finds himself inside a cabin, filled with small critters and animals, all of them friends of the kind mountaineer named Haven. The man is a pacifist and tries to convince Batman so stay with him until the storm is over, but Batman's determination makes him go out to look for Zeus. Meanwhile, Maxie and his thugs have decided to go out of their vehicle and look for shelter.

A few minutes later, Batman regrets leaving Haven's cabin, but before he could decide what to do next, he is attacked by a bear. Using all his skills, Batman saves himself from the bear just as Haven finds him and takes him back home. Unfortunately, while they were away, Zeus and his thugs have taken possession of the cabin. The madman and his thugs then decide that it would be fun to have Batman and Haven fight each other to death, but Haven refuses to fight. Even after Zeus' thugs mock him, hurt him and wreck his place, he remains calm. However, when Zeus kills a small bird inside the cabin, Haven loses his temper and attacks Zeus. The madman's thugs shoot at Haven and Batman is unable to save him in time. After taking down the thugs, Batman follows Zeus to the outside, where the lunatic is attacked by the same bear that Batman confronted earlier. Using a smoke bomb from his Utility Belt, Batman scares the bear away, saving Zeus, who ends up badly injured.

Batman returns to the cabin and ties the criminals outside, after which he tries to help Haven, but the man is slowly dying. With his last breath, Haven tells Batman that all he wanted was peace and that he retreated to the mountains to control his temper, which had caused the death of another man. After Haven passes away surrounded by his friends, Batman digs a grave for the mountain loner.
