The Young Man is told by his fiancee that she would marry him when he has become a successful businessman. He accidentally gets the money from a wallet he was trying to return to its owner, and with that money he buys from a crook furniture that is on the pavement with the intent to resell it for a profit, unaware that it belongs to a family that is about to move and is waiting for the moving cart. He gets a cheap horse-pulled cart, and starts loading the furniture, helped by the family that believes him to be the moving man. He then leaves, very slowly as the horse is not fast. After a while, he finds himself in the middle of the yearly police parade, accidentally catches the bomb thrown by an anarchist and throws it away. After the explosion, he is chased by the police across the city, always hiding, but always found again. He eventually manages to lock up the whole police force into the police station and comes out disguised as a policeman. His fiancee arrives just at that moment and is disappointed that her man is only a policeman. In despair, he gives himself up to the police.

Five years after the Ghostbusters have saved New York, they are out of business because they have been sued for damage to the city. When Dana's child is the victim of a paranormal event, she asks the former Ghostbusters to investigate. They find a river of slime in the old underground tunnels, and the substance seems to react to human emotions. They are sued again after the investigation for drilling a hole in the middle of 1st Avenue, but as ghosts appear during the trial, the judge has to admit that ghosts exist. The Ghostbusters are back in business. In the meanwhile, Dana works at restoring paintings in the museum, where her boss Janosz is being manipulated by the ghost of Vigo, an Carpathian ruler from the 16th century, through the painting of the man. Vigo commands Janosz to bring him Dana's baby so that he can be corporeal again and rule the world. When the Ghostbusters discover that a major event is going to happen, they try to warn the mayor, but are sent to a psychiatric hospital by his assistant, and Dana's baby is kidnapped by a ghost nanny. When the museum is getting covered in slime and ghosts wreak havoc in the city, the Ghostbusters are asked for their help, but they cannot break the layer of slime around the museum, which is reinforced by all the negative emotion in the city. They need a symbol of hope for the population, so they slime the Statue of Liberty and animate it with music. With it and with the positive emotion from the city's population, they manage to enter the museum, save the baby and defeat Vigo.

Holmes is asked by a famous Russian ballet dancer to become the father of her child, but Holmes wiggles out of it by hinting that he is in a relationship with Watson (who is not happy about what such a rumor could do to his reputation). Soon after a cabby brings a young woman whom he had found in the river. She has lost her memory, but Holmes manages to learn that her name is Gabrielle, the Belgian wife of a mining engineer who had gone to Scotland for his work and has ceased to give news three weeks ago. Holmes, Watson and Gabrielle investigate the address where Gabrielle was sending her letters to her husband, discover it is an abandoned shop, but find a letter from Mycroft. At his club, the latter commands his brother to cease investigating the case. The trio therefore goes to Scotland and discovers that something strange is happening in a castle near Loch Ness. They also discover the dead engineer being buried in a nameless grave. One evening, Holmes is summoned to the castle, where Mycroft explains that the engineer was working on an air pump used in a prototype submersible, and died in an accident. The same evening, Queen Victoria visits the place to see the submarine, but she disapproves of the notion of attacking unseen from under water, and puts a stop to the project. Mycroft also tells Sherlock that the real Gabrielle had been murdered three weeks earlier, and that the young woman is actually an Prussian spy. Upon his return, Sherlock understands she uses her umbrella to send Morse code messages to a group of German sailors disguised as monks, and tricks them into stealing the sabotaged submarine, killing them in the process. The spy is then arrested and exchanged for a British spy. Some months later, Sherlock is very affected when he learns from Mycroft that she was arrested as a spy in Japan and executed.

Wikipedia

Arthur is the son of a lighthouse keeper and Atlanna, queen of Atlantis to escape an arranged marriage. When Arthur was very young, Atlanna is forced to go back to Atlantis and Arthur is raised by his father and trained by the Atlantean Vulko, who is loyal to the queen. Arthur is exceptionally strong and able to breathe under water, and becomes known as Aquaman. He stops Black Manta from hijacking a Russian submarine which is nonetheless used by Arthur's half brother Orm, king of the Atlanteans for staging an attack from the humans on a summit between Orm and King Nereus, thus convincing him to unite the Atlant people under Orm's banner against the humans. Nereus's daughter Mera seeks Arthur and sends him on a quest to find the legendary Trident of Atlan, whose owner becomes Ocean Master. Arthur is captured by Orm and defeated in a duel, and escapes thanks to Mera. They travel to the fallen Kingdom of the Deserters under the Sahara, where they find a clue leading then to Sicily. There they find a clue to the next leg of the journey, to the Trench, and escape an attack by Black Manta, who is armed by Orm with prototype Atlantean weapons. They dive into the Trench, where Arthur's mother had been given as a sacrificed years ago. Arthur and Mera dive into it and discover a wormhole that transports them to an underground sea at the center of the Earth. There Arthur finds his mother alive, and the trident guarded by the Karathen. She could not escape, as only the true king of Atlantis can take the trident, and one needs the trident to leave the place. Arthur manages to communicate with the Karathen and it lets him take the trident. With the Karathen and the monsters from the Trench as ally, Arthur confronts Orm's army and vanquishes him in a duel. Arthur is then recognized as Ocean Master.
