Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "The Old Cowboy"

In a small town near the great metropolis of Fawcett City, the elderly and half-daft Spanish War veteran, Sam Coot, was witnessed seemingly going crazy, strapping on his six-shooters and firing at random. In the midst of the chaos, a jewelry store window was shattered, and several expensive jewels went missing, and the old man vanished.

However, Coot's distraught granddaughter, Susan, believed that her grandfather was innocent of these crimes, and plead her case to Billy Batson, due to his connection to Earth's mightiest mortal, Captain Marvel. Billy decided to believe the girl's story, and after slipping off discretely, and uttering the magic word, transformed into his heroic alter-ego.

With Susan in tow, Captain Marvel flew to Bald Mountain, where he'd learned the old man was hiding out. Marvel convinced the police to allow him a two hour window to locate the vet.

However, before the two hour deadline had even ended, even more police showed up and the manhunt intensified, because, unbeknownst to the Captain, the true culprits behind Coot's supposed crime spree, one of whom was wearing a rented cowboy costume similar to the veteran's usual apparel, continued to engage in violent robbery. They robbed a payroll truck and shot four men. As a result, the police deemed that Coot was too much of a danger to afford even two hours to, and resumed the manhunt. To make matters even worse, the criminals themselves covertly joined in on the hunt for the framed man, as he would make a better scapegoat dead than alive. The real Sam Coot only made thing's worse by accidentally starting a forest fire with some matches.

With Captain Marvel preoccupied with extinguishing the forest fire, the villains had no trouble locating their veteran victim, then they set out to tie up all the loose ends at once. They put some of the stolen loot in Coot's pockets to complete the frame-up, started an avalanche to crush the posse that was hunting for him, and then pushed the old man off the steep slope behind the avalanche.

Fortunately, Captain Marvel zoomed in, rescued both Coot and the Posse from the avalanche, and then set off in pursuit of the real culprits. He caught up to them divvying up the loot, and punched both villains out before bringing them to the local authorities. After explaining the situation to the sheriff, Captain Marvel was able to clear old Coot of the false crimes.

Synopsis for Ibis: "The Mystery of the Missing Leprechaun!"

Ibis the Invincible and Banshee O'Brien take on their first case as Magic Inc. In his laboratory Ibis instructs young Banshee in spellcasting, until Taia appears and drags the apprentice (by the ear) away to lunch, which is interrupted by the arrival of tearful elderly Miss Agatha Egg, who asks Ibis to help her find her lost pet leprechaun. Agatha leads Ibis & Banshee to a crowded trolley terminal, where Banshee conjures his personal oracle and asks about the leprechaun, but is instead told about a nearby robbery, happening right then, across the street at a meat warehouse. The robbers are a dozen or so sprites; Ibis defeats them by animating the stolen meat, which now fights back. Banshee helpfully tries to apply the Hippogriff Charm but bungles it resulting in the sprites escaping. Outside it's raining, and there's Taia, hopping mad, in her Egyptian sunsuit, with an umbrella, carrying a raincoat and galoshes for O'Brien, and some sharp words for Ibis about proper rainwear. She's also not buying Agatha's story about a "lost" leprechaun, because as everybody knows, leprechauns can't be lost, only kidnapped. "Shades of the Sphinx, I believe Taia's right!" exclaims Ibis. Agatha names Annie O'Toole as a suspect; Ibis and Banshee go to see her; Agatha and Taia stay and try to have some tea in a restaurant, but Agatha is growing more agitated and agoraphobic by the moment. At Annie O'Toole's address, O'Brien again conjures his oracle which again diverts them toward a nearby crime happening right at that moment, and again it's the sprites, this time stealing expensive dyes from a dye works. This time, the companions recognize that the leader of the sprites looks different from the others, and deduce that he is the missing leprechaun. This guy proclaims that he is after money and is organizing all of King Oberon's sprites to gain it, then he tries to kill Ibis and Banshee with poison gas, with the Ibistick laying just out of Ibis' reach. Ibis telepathically contacts Taia, who comes to the dye works and is opposed by the sprites, but easily defeats them with the factory's water supply, because as everybody knows, no spirit can cross water or even touch it. She bravely staggers into the gas-filled room, grabs the Ibistick, and saves the boys. But now Miss Egg has disappeared! They search for her, with Taia telling Ibis to do all of the things that he normally thinks of doing anyway, and find the sprites underground, near the city's center, then she's the one to think of using a fire hydrant to kibosh the sprites. She jumps into the water under a dug-up street and retrieves a pot of gold, then reveals that the leprechaun has been with them the whole time, disguised as Agatha Egg, which Taia figured out by noticing some clues that the boys both had missed. The leprechaun gets away, but Taia's got his pot of gold and he'll always be helpless without it.
