Synopsis for The Spectre: "The Return of Zor"

Using telepathy, Zor commands world-reknowned scientist Professor Dale Ericks to build a mechanism of unknown purpose, which then activates itself and projects Ericks across the depths of infinity to the weird castle where Zor is imprisoned, then to free him from a paralysis-ray. Ericks' reward is to take Zor's place. Once free, the evil spirit murders Police Sergeant Dexter and frames Jim Corrigan. Zor battles the Spectre, in a fierce exchange of comets, but Zor has more powerful knowledge of physics.
-- Zor then enlists the aid of murderer Pedro Gonzalez, by magically interrupting his hanging. Pedro kidnaps Clarice Winston (her 4th kidnap) and ties her to a log and sends it over a waterfall. Spectre is prevented from interfering by an invisible wall created by Zor. The Voice tells Spectre that evil is vulnerable to the mystic ectobane tree. (That's the sum of their fourth conversation.) Spectre zooms to the distant country of Lugania, magically harvests some ectobane trees, rapidly builds a coffin, returns to the waterfall, paralyzes Zor, and places him inside it. He then rescues Clarice by reversing the waterfall, and transforms Gonzalez into a tree. Zor is then banished to the depths of the universe.

Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Fire Murders"

A series of murders takes place, in which the bodies are burned. Dr. Fate asks Inza for help, but soon is attacked by a fiery globe. Fate sends that globe right back where it came from, plus follows it, to an isolated steel castle on a rocky coast, where Fate identifies the source of the murders, a sorcerer called Mango the Mighty, trying to extort money from the wealthy. The bad guy sends more fireballs. Fate flicks a wrist and turns them into ice. While Fate deals with the sorcerer’s Maylayan poison bats, Inza is captured (her 1st kidnap). Finally, the bad guy sends the Legion of the Styx against Fate, whose mystical “life force” powers are useless against the dead. Fisticuffs ensue. Fate rescues Inza, and transforms the adept into a tiny statue of clay, which Inza seals in an ebony cabinet.

Notes

  • Published by Detective Comics, Inc..
  • Doctor Fate:
    • Doctor Fate: The Fire Murders is reprinted in Superman #252 (1972), and Golden Age Doctor Fate Archives 1
    • Wasn't it just last issue that Dr. Fate was threatening to cremate a bunch of Styx/Hades/Underworld guys? Now he can’t hurt them with his powers? So either he was bluffing last issue or has lost some of his magic super power since then.
    • At the end of this episode, Inza Cramer has been kidnapped once.
    • Doctor Fate body count = 0. Mango's transformation into a tiny clay statue would seem fatal, but if it was, why would they imprison it in an ebony cabinet? Mango has admittedly never returned, but he may not be truly dead.
