Synopsis:
While waiting in line at the bank, Johnny observes a robbery pulled by Paste-Pot Pete-- "Master Criminal," who, while called a "cornball" by one of the customers described his paste-gun as "the ultimate weapon." After trying to keep his identity a secret, Johnny pursues Pete to his next crime-- stealing a "Delta Cosmic Missile" from a neaby missile base! A running battle around the base results in Johnny being stuck to another missile and launched toward space! After escaping, Johnny tears after Pete "like a wrathful living inferno." Pete barely escapes, and manages to rendezvous with the captain of a small boat he paid to get him out of the country "in case something went wrong." With the money returned, Johnny wonders if Pete will show up again.

Indexer Notes

First appearance of Paste-Pot Pete. Next appearance in STRANGE TALES #110 (July 1963). Pete became The Trapster in FANTASTIC FOUR #38 (May 1965). 1st time a villain in this series got away at the end. A genuine animosity seems to have developed very quickly, perhaps as a result of such a "ridiculous" looking baddie almost killing Johnny during their fight. Don Simpson paid tribute to Pete (and Spider-Man) with his character "The Slick" in BIZARRE HEROES. Splash slightly reformatted & page numbers removed for this reprint.
