The Mob is terrified of Ant-Man, and need help before they pull their next heist. Egghead is a brilliant but arrogant scientist who gets accused of selling government secrets to spies, and is out of a job, and takes the Mob's money to put a stop to Ant-Man. He thinks it will be an easy job, but Ant-Man out-foxes him.
First appearance of Egghead.
Reprinted in Marvel Tales #3.

"Strange Mission" (K-440) 2 pages, text with spot illustration.

"I Found the Impossible World" by Lee/Lieber and Heck. 8 pages.

"The Secret of the Statues!" by Lee and Ditko.
Art students are aware of a reclusive sculptor who lives nearby, and send their teacher, Gizzard the art critic, to see the man's work. Gizzard declares the work a failure, 'lifeless'. The statues turn out to be aliens attempting to disguise themselves for an invasion of Earth, who then deem their mission a failure.
