Item Biography

"The Mighty Thor vs. The Executioner"
by Lee/Lieber and Kirby/Ayers. 13 pages.

Don Blake is a successful doctor, yet cannot tell his assistant, Nurse Jane Foster, that he loves her, as his physical handicap has undermined his confidence. Revolution has broken out in the European country of San Diablo, and the need for medical professionals is great. Dr. Blake and Nurse Foster join a ship bound for the country, but it is attacked by the new Fascist Dictator of San Diablo, the Executioner (note: not the same character as the Asgardian God). Blake transforms into Thor, and routs the evil regime. Jane is smitten by Thor.
First appearance of Jane Foster.
Reprinted in Marvel Tales (1966) #3.

"The Witching Hour"
by Lee and Heck. 5 pages.

Criminal Sam Jordan is on the run from the law, and rich with the stolen money from his last job. He rides the train through Europe. He picks up a woman companion on the way. He decides to pull a con on a superstitious village, and has her pretend to be a witch so that he can offer his services to the villagers as an exorcist. Sam's problem is that his companion really is a witch.

"Somewhere Hides a... Thing!" (V-833)
by Lee and Ditko. 5 pages.

An old trapper stumbles in from the frozen north with a wild story of seeing an alien near a glacier. He dies telling the story. No one can find the alien, and chalk it up to a tall story. The alien emerges from hiding and climbs into his ship (which is the glacier), and departs, convinced that mankind is not yet ready to meet his people.
