Superman fights the Amphi-Bandits, who make their getaways in a speedboat by creating an artificial fog. They capture Lois and Superman trails them to their hideout. While he is distracted they make good their escape, which Superman tracks to a submersible. Covering the windows with a tarpaulin, Superman lifts them gently and deposits them at a police station.
All they really wanted was pretty things to play with...

The Vigilante [Greg Saunders]; Stuff, the Chinatown Kid; Mrs. Gladys Muchworth; Rattler (crook)
The Vigilante and Stuff foil a plot whereby crooks pretend to be harmless kleptomaniacs so that a rich society matron will allow them to play in her home with cheap jewelry she has bought to entertain them. This befuddles our heroes, until the time arrives for the criminals to use the layout of the homes they have cased to steal the valuable gems.
Zatara [Giovanni "John" Zatara]; Walter; Miss Jones
Zatara has been having lunch with some old friends, but the youngster has to go back to school, complaining how dull it will be after hearing Zatara's tales. Zatara decides to visit the classroom, but in invisible form. He animates the depiction of the Pilgrims being attacked by native Americans in 1632, then takes the class under the ocean, to the top of a volcano, and to the snowy wastes of Alaska, before returning them safely to the classroom, wiser and more enthusiastic about their lessons.
