Synopsis for Aquaman: "H Is For Holocaust"
A cargo ship holding radioactive material is hijacked by a terrorist group, the New Order, and NATO General Horgan decides to have it bombed before it can reach its destination. The bombing would scatter nuclear waste over Atlantean farmlands, so Horgan contacts Aquaman to have him evacuate the area. Rather than lose the farmlands, Aquaman opts to intercept and disable the NATO missile himself, and then attacks and defeats the terrorists. At the same time, a faction of Atlantean politicians is beginning to speak up against Aquaman's rule.

Synopsis for Vigilante: "Gnome Man's Land"
This is Chapter Six of an unpublished saga of the Seven Soldiers of Victory – written in the Golden Age but never completed until 1975.
Vigilante finds himself literally in the center of a battlefield of … very tiny people. They stop when they see Vigilante in their midst. They explain: one group believes a straight line is he shortest distance between two points; the other that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line! Vigilante says that sounds “plum loco” and the battle resumes!
Vigilante tries to rope and shoot the warriors, but they shrink and stretch out of the way! The attackers boo and hiss each other, then turn on Vigilante – who has the nerve to use actual weapons!
While imprisoned, Vigilante discovers HE can stretch, too! He quickly escapes. Returning to the battlefield, Vigilante turns himself into a giant housefly and scares the combatants into surrendering.
Through singing a Rondo, Vigilante helps the combatants realize they actually agree and stops the war. He stretches through a crack in the ground to return to earth.
