Synopsis for Captain Marvel: "The Old Cowboy"

In a small town a few miles from the great metropolis, elderly and half-daft Spanish War veteran Sam Coot just goes nuts one day and straps on some six-shooters and does some random shooting; a police car tire gets blown out; a jewelry store window gets busted; some expensive jewels go missing; and the old man disappears. His distraught granddaughter Susan seeks out Billy to tell old Sam's side of things; Billy learns the old man is hiding out on Bald Mountain, and slips away to change identities, then he and Susan fly out to the scene of the manhunt. Marvel negotiates a 2-hour headstart for himself and searches for the old guy, but before the two hours are even over, more cops show up and the manhunt intensifies, because back in town, the two crooks who did the first jewelry heist have now (with one dressed in a rented cowboy costume) robbed a payroll truck and shot four men. The real bad guys have now joined the posse. The real Sam Coot has an accident with a match, and starts a wildfire, then runs away. Captain Marvel spends some time containing and extinguishing the forest fire; the main posse withdraws toward town; the two bad guys keep looking for old Sam because he'd make an even better scapegoat dead than alive. They catch up to him, stuff some of the payroll money into his pockets, start an avalanche to squash the posse, and push the old man off the steep slope behind the avalanche. Captain Marvel zooms in, rescues Coot, rescues the posse, stops the avalanche, and then pursues the bad guys, catches them divvying up the loot, punches them both out, and turns them over to the sheriff along with their loot, clearing old Coot of the robbery charges.

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.
