Synopsis for "And the Town Came Tumbling Down!"

Batman has an inconclusive encounter with Quakemaster, a costumed villain whose quake-weapon causes artificial earthquakes which he uses to bring down several buildings in Gotham's financial district. While he consults his files in the Batcave to try to determine Quakemaster's true identity, Batman is almost trapped when Quakemaster uses his weapon in the neighborhood. Finally, he determines that Quakemaster is really Robert Coleman, a builder who was discredited when a hurricane tore apart an apartment complex he erected, and who is out to "prove" that none of his competitor's buildings are any better. In a second battle, Batman points out that the only buildings to crumble in Quakemaster's assaults were the ones he himself had designed. Having unsettled Quakemaster, Batman defeats and captures him.

Synopsis for "A Creature of Death and Darkness"

A spill of radioactive chemicals off Hawaii in 1957 joins with an oil spill from a wrecked tanker in 1975 to create, by 1977, two “Amoeboid” creatures of living oil that threaten to devour anything in their path. Aquaman and the U.S. Navy encounter the creatures after defeating a gang of pirates who had a high-pressure acid spray gun. The Navy seems unable to stop the Amoeboids by conventional means, and are about to unleash an atomic bomb on them, when Aquaman destroys the creatures in a way used to control regular oil slicks, by spraying corrosive acid on them.
