Indexer Notes

Follows the layout of Marvel Super Action #18. At editor Stan Lee's behest Marie Severin re-penciled the Vision figure on page 3, panel 7 and possibly also the Vision hand in panel 6 (according to Roy Thomas, in Alter Ego #50 (July 2005), page 18). The last page is almost entirely composed of the "Ozymandias" sonnet by Percy Bysshe Shelley, published in 1818.
