Synopsis for Captain Marvel Battles "the Legend Horror"

A sinister mystery hangs over the city as night after night a mounting toll of screaming victims are carried away by some unknown midnight marauder. Late one night as Billy Batson wanders the dark streets, he is attacked by a gigantic bat, with a stinger in its tail. The bat breaks its stinger on Captain Marvel, but a nearby civilian is stung by a similar bat, and paralyzed, and almost carried away, but Cap rescues him. Half a dozen more bats fly by, carrying paralyzed victims; Cap borrows a large fishing net, contains them, pulls out the humans, and then drags the bats below the ocean to drown. But no sooner does he leave the spot than the bats are rescued by some gigantic tentacles, and set free to raid the city again. The next night Billy deliberately lets himself get stung and captured, and is carried to a cave at the seacoast. Inside are a large number of paralyzed people lying on slabs of ice. An enormous tentacle grabs Billy and waves him around; he gets his first look at The Kraken, a colossal octopus, who gloats and exposits that it plans to devour all of the people there, after the bats have drunk their blood. Eventually the bat-stinger poison wears off and Billy SHAZAMs himself into Captain Marvel, stabs one bat with an icicle, then finds a seam of coal and starts a really big fire, which many bats are blinded by, and fall into. The fire also melts the big icy slabs that had kept the other paralyzed people inert. The Kraken has fled, and is already elsewhere attacking a merchant ship, but Captain Marvel grabs the monster and carries it away to a hot, burning desert, where the horror meets its hideous end.

Synopsis for Ibis the Invincible: "The Guardians of the Tomb"

Somewhere in Egypt, with pick-axes, archaeologists Arthur Randall and John Combs chop their way through an ancient wall and into a burial chamber. After 3000 years, the burial place of the cruel tyrant and master of black magic, Pharoah En-Tep, is found! Near the king's ornate sarcophagus are two large urns, painted with figures of spear-wielding guards, containing the unmummified bones of four long-dead sentries. Over the next few months, all of this is packed out, shipped 5000 miles, and finally is set up in an American museum, and Ibis and Taia have been invited there to authenticate the discovery. [Ibis himself was buried 4000 years ago, so En-Tep's reign took place long after Ibis's death. Ibis's authoritative knowledge comes from studying and magic.] In a nearby storage room, Combs screams, and is soon found dead, with two live men running away from his body; the men have ancient attire and hairstyles. Ibis the Invincible foils their escape with some conjured spears; but these are trained fighters, and they get away after nearly killing Ibis with a knife. One of the two large urns is found broken, and the Ibistick is warning that the other contains an evil spirit. Ibis and Taia return to their home and fruitlessly consult ancient records, then Ibis summons the ghosts of Pharoah En-Tep from the land of the dead. En-Tep is well pleased to learn that his ancient command is still obeyed by the bones of the dead! This remark tips off Ibis that the other urn is still dangerous, and he magics himself back to the museum, where a dense black mist is now pouring out of the urn in question. Two of the awful "Guardians of the Tomb" burst out of the vase, shattering it, and attack Arthur Randall, just as Ibis and Taia arrive. The mummy and sarcophagus of En-Tep are dissolved in flames by the Ibistick's power, which causes the attacking guardians to collapse in a heap of moldering bones.
