"The Master Plan of Doctor Doom!" featuring the Fantastic Four by Lee and Kirby/Bell; 23 pages.
The FF bicker amongst themselves after a mishap while studying Dr. Doom's time machine, and make attempts to select a new leader after Reed scolds the others. Meanwhile, Dr Doom rounds up several criminals and enhances their powers so they can take on the FF. Doom uses Yogi Dakor, 'Handsome' Harry, and Bull Brogin to trap the team in a special chamber, one that will teleport the team to their deaths in space. Doom's reward to his agents is to trick them into another dimension, where they will await his bidding. Reed reasserts his leadership, and the FF turn the tables on Doom and send him in their stead.
First appearances by Yogi Dakor, Bull Brogin, and 'Handsome' Harry Phillips.
