Sandman's back, after getting beat up by Spidey. They had him locked up in a jail cell with bars. He's the Sandman. Didn't they think he might be able to make a play to escape from such a place?
We also learn the origin of Dr. Strange in the backup story. Dormammu is referenced, although not seen.
- Stan writes that the Sandman story comes via special arrangement with Spider-Man's mag, given that he's a Spidey villain and all.
- Torch pretends to be Spidey, his noted rival, in order to lure the Sandman to him.
Dr. Strange before he took up black magic. A jerk, and a cigarette smoking doctor. For shame!
