Synopsis for "The Face Behind the Mask!"

This story is reprinted from The Flash #122.

The youths of Blue Valley are abuzz over the coming of Silver Mask the latest teen musical sensation that hides his true face behind a silver face mask. During the performance, Silver Mask gets rushed by a crowd of his loyal fans prompting young Wally West to pull Silver Mask out of the situation as Kid Flash. Taking the singing sensation back to his dressing room, the two learn that they are mutual fans of one another's work. Just then, Silver Mask's manager Harry enters to the room to talk business and Kid Flash departs agreeing to meet Silver Mask again. Upon his departure, Kid Flash suspects that Silver Mask is somehow afraid of his own manager.

As it turns out, Silver Mask is, in reality, Eddie Farrell; the former leader of a gang of crooks known as the Zulu Kings. Abandoning his criminal past, he became the musician Silver Mask until his old life caught up with him, and Harry -- a member of the Zulu Kings -- would replace Eddie's manager and force him to keep quiet about their past criminal endeavors. When Eddie attempts to go to the police and confess his crimes, Harry is there to make sure Eddie does not by threatening his life.

That night, during the Silver Mask concert, Wally West is in attendance and notices that Silver Mask's songs have key words that spell out his current plight. Realizing that it is a secret message sent out to Kid Flash, Wally changes into his hero identity and comes to Silver Mask's rescue. Kid Flash races to the home of Mrs. Wright, a wealthy Blue Valley resident who is expecting a private Silver Mask performance, but in reality is about to become a victim of the Zulu Kings. Kid Flash arrives however and easily takes out the crooks, foiling their plot to rob Mrs. Wright and prevent Silver Mask from becoming an accomplice in a crime he did not want to participate in. In the end, Silver Mask reveals his criminal past to the public, however he still enjoys his celebrity status -- it being untarnished due to this revelation. Eddie considers giving up wearing the mask but decides to continue to wear it during his on-stage performances as it has become his trademark.

Synopsis for "The Flaming Doom!"

This story is reprinted from Showcase #37.

Millions of years ago, the dinosaurs were killed by radioactive bombardment, except for one curious creature that resembled a huge manta ray and flew in the air. It got lodged in a glacier for eons until shifting ice freed it. It flies to the United States, where it melts a lighthouse with its gaze and destroys a military plane. When it attacks the Chrysler Building, Col. Henry Casper decides to call Dr. Will Magnus for a solution.

He takes a helicopter to Magnus Labs and finds the scientist dancing with his newest robotic creation: Platinum, also known as Tina. To combat the threatening creature, he quickly builds Gold, Iron, Lead, Mercury, and Tin: the Metal Men.

As he deploys the new robots to battle, Platinum objects and demands to be included as well. Magnus speculates that her activator is faulty and provides her too much of a personality but decides to worry about that after the group has dispatched the creature. When the team arrives, it is wrecking a bridge and Tin immediately volunteers to stop it. Magnus disagrees and has Lead mold Iron into a ball to throw at it with Tin acting as a protective shield. It bats the balled heroes back and knocks the rest of the team out of the sky—their Rocket Disc slams onto a rooftop and the monster's heat vision melts Tin into scrap.

Lead shields the others and Gold stretches into a lasso for Lead to grab the monster. It proves too strong and pulls the two robots into the ocean, where Iron immediately begins rusting due to the salt and Gold lies incapacitated on the floor. The military's missiles are a minor nuisance to the beast and the remaining Metal Men fly up to try to defeat it one last time.

Mercury attempts to smother it but it evidently doesn't need oxygen to survive. Platinum weaves her body in to a thin spindle that coats over Mercury and Lead dives onto it to suffocate it further, trapping the radiation that had been emitting from its body and killing it. The remaining heroes dive into the sea encasing the mammoth animal.
