Indexer Notes

Part 5 of 9. Fury's "Repulsor Watch," capable of deflecting bullets, later turned up in the film LIVE AND LET DIE (1973), though in the movie, it was only used to attract metal, not deflect it. SHIELD would build their own "Dreadnought," a tunneling machine, which would turn up in STRANGE TALES #167 (April 1968). HYDRA's "Dreadnought" would turn up again in DAREDEVIL #121 (May 1975).

Umar is shocked and cannot bear the sight of herself as she really is (thanks to Veritas), but as Strange confronts her, she sends forth a mystic bolt of death-- toward Clea!

Indexer Notes

Part 8 of 22; part 4 of Umar sequence. The flying demons around Umar's castle are strikingly similar to those seen in the 1968 SPIDER-MAN cartoon, "The Evil Sorcerer". Cover story.
