Synopsis for Hercules: "Cave-In at the Wolf Gulch Gold Mine"

An earthquake caves in the Wolf Gulch Gold Mine, and many minors are injured and lost. Joe Hercules shows up, on foot, wearing his superhero suit, and asks a few questions. Suddenly an aftershock sends an avalanche sweeping toward the mine's powder shack, but Hercules uses a big timber to lever an even bigger boulder into the path of the landslide, diverting it, and saving the shack from blowing up. Still a whole section crew is trapped below ground, so Hercules digs mightily into the crashed-in mine.

Right then Jake and Dead Eye Buzzard, and their gang, ride up and take a good shooting position uphill from the miners, and Dead Eye gets ready to start picking them off, but Hercules has already spotted them, and still has the big lever from before, which he hurls javelin-style, across the canyon, at the Buzzard Brothers, who are lucky to avoid it, and who quickly ride away. Joe lets them get away because he's still got some miners to rescue.

A sleek roadster pulls in from the mine road, bringing the mine-owner's daughter (Rosemary Cabot) and her boyfriend (George Marlin) onto the scene. But the Buzzards have also returned to their spot on the canyon's opposite rim, and now open fire. George gets out of the car and is immediately shot. Hercules gets him to safety and patches his wound, while the miners, and Rosemary, pile into Rosemary's car to charge after the outlaw gang. Joe gets back to work and soon has shoveled his way down to Level Four, where the miners are trapped. When the miners see Joe, they at first mistake him for a local legendary character, "Jeb the Giant," kind of like the Paul Bunyan of "49ers".

Back on the surface, Joe learns that Rosemary has gone with the posse of miners, and they have a big head start. Hercules leaps into an ore bucket, suspended on rollers from a cable across the gorge, forcefully enough to send it careening to the other side. The Buzzard Gang shoots desperately at the onrushing steel bucket, but stupidly stay bunched up around the cable's support tower, and Hercules crashes into them, scattering them every which way. While he's beating up some of them, others escape on horseback down the road, but they soon encounter the roadster full of armed miners. One or two of the outlaws are shot dead, while the last two flee back the way they came. They encounter Hercules, who grabs their horses by the forelegs, and sends the riders crashing to the ground. They shoot him, a lot of times, but he wades into them and has them both knocked out by the time the roadster arrives with reinforcements.

Hercules slaps some info out of one of the outlaws, and it turns out that George, the boyfriend, was behind the plot to fake an earthquake with explosives and end up taking over the mine. When confronted, Marlin briefly threatens to blow up the powder shack with a pistol shot, but Hercules races back to Wolf Gulch in the roadster and arrives in time to subdue him.

Synopsis for The Red Bee: "War with the Madden Gang"

Leo Madden is acquitted of murder, much to the chagrin of Rick Raleigh and his boss the District Attorney. That night prosecution witness Ed Brown is murdered in his own home; the gunman (Gus Lund) is pursued by the Red Bee; he flees into a fenced-in factory and locks the gate behind him, but t.R.B. sends his trained bee Michael in after him. Lund prepares to ambush the Red Bee with a beaker of sulphuric acid, but is stung by Michael, causing him to flail about, splashing acid into his own face; he dies. Red Bee catches up, goes thru his pockets, identifies him, and connects him to his boss, Leo Madden. Two more hoods show up; one has a lariat and a knife, the other has a length of pipe; mayhem ensues and these two are quickly defeated. One of the two is still conscious, so t.R.B. drags that one back to the scene of the crime, where they find that the dying Ed Brown has used his own blood to scrawl a clue on the floor: "47-A", which Red deduces is the address, on Carlton Avenue, of the diamond shop where Madden had committed the murder of which he was acquitted. On the way there, he stops and leaves the snivelling hoodlum with a cop. Inside the diamond store, Madden and two thugs are using a welding torch to break into the bank-vault-sized safe. More mayhem ensues, during which the gas jet burns thru its feed hose, causing an explosion which wrecks the store and kills the two safecrackers, but Madden had fled into an adjoining room, and now returns, shooting, but the Bee disarms him with a flung chair and then punches him out. At the end, it looks to D.A. Hawkes as if Madden will soon be convicted of ordering Ed Brown's murder.
