Synopsis for Superman and Batman: "Superman and Batman... Outlaws!"

A dead scientist's final invention throws Superman and Batman into a parallel world, where they must aid a heroic Luthor and Clayface team against an evil Superman and Batman.

The evil counterparts of Batman and Superman prepare a trap for the heroes to delay them while they try to use the scientific device to travel to Earth-One and impersonate the heroes in order to expand their crime empire. However, the good Luthor learns the truth in time and together with Clayface, the good Batman and Superman manage to capture their evil counterparts before they can travel to Earth-One. The good Batman suggests they use one of Luthor's brain-washing machines in order to turn the criminal Batman and Superman into law enforcers and that plan is completely successful. When the good Superman and Batman are returned to Earth, they consider doing the same thing to their Luthor and Clayface, but they realize that such a plan would never work.

Synopsis for Congo Bill: "The Ninth Wonder"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #270.

Police arrive on the banks of the Congo as they try to apprehend a band of pirates in a submarine but they are too late. Suddenly they witness a golden gorilla dashing out of the jungle. The gorilla uses a piece of chain to pull the submarine towards land and beach it making it easy for the authorities to arrest the pirates. Two weeks later, a communist scientist by the name of Dr Kovec receives a report about a gorilla breaking into the dungeon where they are holding a political prisoner by the name of Professor West. Korvac hopes to interrogate West to get him to reveal atomic secrets from the West. The gorilla rescues the professor to get him away from his communist captors. Kovec and his men manage to trap the gorilla in a chemical lab with no means of escape, but then they witnesses the gorilla preparing a chemical mix to escape the prison. The gorilla creates a nitro glycerine solution that blows a hole in the wall and allows the gorilla to escape with professor West. He walks away as the communist captors seem frozen in astonishment by the gorillas human like intelligence. Days later the intelligent gorilla breaks up a confrontation between agitators and Wambu tribesmen using a crop dusting airplane that he flies himself. The origin of the intelligent gorilla is then revealed. One day when Congo Bill and his young pal Janu were paddling up the Congo river, they witness a helpless medicine man being attacked by crocodiles in the river. They rescue the medicine man but are too late. As he lay dying, the medicine man gives Congo Bill a magical ring which will allow him to change places with a golden gorilla once he rubs the ring. To change back, the gorilla must rub a ring that he wears on his fingers and the change will occur after an hour. Congo Bill uses the ring and is astounded at how he switches bodies with the gorilla. He uses the gorillas fantastic strength to capture group of poachers as they are about to threaten a herd of helpless elephants. Not only does Congo Bill change into the body of the gorilla but he also maintains his own human intelligence. The combination of strength and human instincts make the golden gorilla a formidable foe to those that would do evil.
