Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "Sivana's Twin"

A jeweler named Dishlather who was going to give a valuable gem away as a prize for buying war bonds comes to Billy's office, and happens to look exactly like his archenemy Dr. Sivana. The real Sivana tries to use the resemblance to commit crimes by pretending to be his lookalike to divert suspicion. Marvel meets with Dishlather's wife and exposes Sivana not with something that only the real Dishlather would know, but by tricking him into saying he remembers something that never happened.

Synopsis for Ibis the Invincible: "Ibis Makes a Pact with the Devil!"

Ibis announces to Taia he's made a pact with the devil. After she panics and thinks he's forsaken his battle against evil to join forces with the prince of darkness, Ibis reveals it was just a cruel joke on her. He's made a pact with Daredevil Luke, a sportsman competing in an event with auto racing, aerial racing, and boxing. The pact is not to interfere with magic, because Luke wants to win on his own merits, even though he's been threatened by the black magician Dr. Hookah. The bad doctor does indeed try to cheat with magic throughout the events, but Ibis finds a loophole to satisfy his need to thwart evil and honor the letter of his promise at the same time (he has Taia use the Ibistick instead of him).
