Brief Summary:


http://marvel.wikia.com/Strange_Tales_129


Commentary:

Torch's gal makes a reference to what a sweet young man Peter Parker is.  I doubt Stan's going to build this up into a full fledged love triangle, but the rivalry between Torch and Spidey is nonetheless fun.

So yeah, then Thing and Torch fight some bad guys, and so on and so forth.  As Stan says at story's end, let's change to Dr. Strange!

The Doc is in the house, and he fights Tiboro, who used to rule the world, but then didn't (who knows why), but now wants to again.  The Doc is having none of it, and puts the whooping on Tiboro.  Then, Strange-pants (I'm trying out every nickname I can think of here) makes a bunch of guys forget they ever learned of his mystic power.  Ethical questions are not raised, of course.  Until next time, may the seven rings of Raggadorr protect you!
