Fantastic Four (Marvel)

Synopsis:
The team takes a vacation on the cruise ship “Holiday” combining business with pleasure. There have been sightings of large sea creatures within a span of the Atlantic Ocean. Alicia Masters tags along. Upon investigating creatures they see from the deck of the ship they are captured by the creatures and delivered to Namor who had orchestrated all this.

Namor wants the team to deliver a message to the world above – all oceans and the air above them are under his domain and humans may not pass through them. Namor flirts with Sue but Sue sides with the team. He then sends them back to the surface. Alicia is left on the boat to finish the voyage on her own.

Reed Richards calls an emergency meeting at the United Nations to explain the threat. Dr. G.W. Falton (Namor in disguise) is asked to explain the history of the undersea race (homo mermanus). He recounts how Princess Fen met Captain McKenzie, married him and bore his son – Namor. Richards calls on the nations to battle Namor. Namor then pulls out of his costume, flees to the coastal waters and launches an attack on New York City.

The city quickly falls to him but the Fantastic Four battle to win it back. The Thing takes a prisoner which gives Reed an idea. The mechanism is used and the water in Namor’s army’s helmets begins to evaporate sending them back to the sea. In a rage Namor flies to the Baxter Building, kidnaps Sue and takes her back to his kingdom.

As Namor battles the three male team members, Krang deduces that Namor abducted Sue because he cares for her. This sends Lady Dorma into a jealous rage. Dorma breaks a window allowing sea water to rush in. During he confusion Sue escapes into the ocean without any means of breathing. Namor and the Thing see her and rescue her, stopping the battle. Namor boots all Atlanteans out of his Imperial Command Car to use it to get Sue to a hospital. Krang and Dorma confront him on his concern over the health of an enemy combatant (Sue). Namor demands silence claiming it is his imperial privilege.

Namor rushes her to Manhattan General Hospital and leaves her in the doctor’s care. The other three catch up within a few hours and Sue is recovering. When Namor returns to New Atlantis he finds it deserted – his people abandoned him because of his loyalty to Sue.

Synopsis:
While vacationing in Norway, Dr. Don Blake is discovered spying on an invading force of Stone Men from Saturn. Blake manages to hide in a cave and, after entering a secret passage, finds a cane which, when tapped, turns him into Thor the Thunder God, and his cane into Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. He learns the uses of the hammer and finds that he now has super-strength and control over the weather. Meanwhile the Saturnians have been successful in warding off a NATO air force attack and are ready to begin conquering Earth. Thor attacks and counters their every move. Realizing they cannot beat Thor, they retreat and leave Earth. The military cannot find the one responsible for beating the aliens, only a crippled man, who certainly couldn't be the one.

X-Men (Marvel)(01 - Mutants)

Synopsis:
At Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in Westchester County, New York, Professor Charles Xavier summons his students telepathically. When the Beast, Angel, Iceman, and Cyclops[1] arrive, he puts them through a series of exercises to hone their mutant talents. Xavier then introduces them to a new student, Marvel Girl[2], to whom he explains the purpose of his school: his students do receive an education, but they are also the first line of defense against evil mutants.

Meanwhile, at Cape Citadel, Magneto causes a rocket to crash. The next day he takes over the whole base and claims it in the name of Homo superior (i.e. mutants). When Xavier hears about the incident, he sends his X-Men on their first mission. Cyclops uses his eye beams to make a hole in Magneto's force field, thus alerting him to their presence. Magneto launches a volley of heat-seeking missiles, which lock on to Angel; Iceman knocks most of them out, and the Beast catches the last one. Magneto sends metal debris at Angel; Cyclops destroys it. Magneto flings a burning tanker truck at the team; Iceman covers them with an ice shield, and Cyclops blasts a tunnel under the flames so that they come up near Magneto. Unprepared for such power and resourcefulness, Magneto sets up another force field and levitates himself to safety.
