Indexer Notes

Part 3 of 7. 1st appearance of the SHIELD Communication Center. The chase sequence, from train to car-turned-submarine vs. frogmen is strikingly similar to the one in the film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977). 1st modern appearance of Dum Dum & Gabe (regular cast members in SGT. FURY AND HIS HOLWING COMMANDOS). The relationship between Imperial Hydra & Agent G pays tribute to that of Doctor Fu Manchu & Fah Lo Suee, or The Yellow Claw and his niece, Suwan.

Indexer Notes

Part 4 of 7. The tank which crashes thru a wall and then launches a section of itself as a missile is remarkably similar to the one used by Mr. Freeze in the film BATMAN AND ROBIN (1997). The board room scene is reminiscent of the film EXECUTIVE SUITE (1954).

Indexer Notes

Part 7 of 7 / Part 1 of 3. 1st appearance of SHIELD's E.S.P. Division, Mentallo, The Fixer. In this episode, Arnold Brown bears a resemblance to actor Arthur O'Connell. The new story starts on page 8; when Stan Lee wrote "at that very moment", he should really have said "a week later", as reading the page literally makes it appear Fury (who was heading for dinner & a long sleep) was in 2 places at the same time!

Indexer Notes

Part 2 of 3. Story occurs concurrently with TALES OF SUSPENSE #75 (March 1966). First mention of "THEM." Fixer's "Thru-The-Ground-Tank" strikingly similar to the ones used by The Hate Monger in FANTASTIC FOUR #21 (December 1963) and The Rabble Rouser in STRANGE TALES #119 (April 1964), suggesting a connection between them and "THEM."

The pair finally use "Grenade Guns" to destroy the egg. Back at the SHIELD barber shop, clean-cut new recruit Jasper Sitwell has a hard time convincing the barber he's really a SHIELD agent. He tells Fury he's been assigned to help him against the flying eggs, which remain a mystery.

A group of androids escape and trample AIM's hordes. Royale tells SHIELD's directors he cannot offer AIM's services and technology under their current leader. Defeating the androids Fury suspects A.I.M behind the operation.

Indexer Notes

Part 2 of 5. Story continues from TALES OF SUSPENSE #78 (June 1966), and presumably the flashback in STRANGE TALES #160-161 (Sept-Oct 1967) which was "too secret" for anyone to talk about. The android-growing tanks appear to pay tribute to THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951). 1st published appearance of Count Royale; based on the dialogue the story takes place after his appearance in this month's TALES OF SUSPENSE #79 (July 1966) since his motivations in this story are questionable (his guilt is confirmed in the Captain America episode). Stark's problems with the Senate in TALES OF SUSPENSE #72-84 (December 1965-December 1966) are mentioned; his plant is forcibly shut down in SUSPENSE #78 (June 1966) presumably allowing A.I.M. to offer their technology to SHIELD.

Royale has returned to an A.I.M. observation post and watches as a squad invades the SHIELD barber shop. Fury, Dum Dum & Jasper save the day. Royale, meanwhile, feels Fury's rash actions have put the last nail in his coffin.

Fury realizes their movements are under video-surveillance by the enemy. Count Royale and his A.I.M. cohorts are amazed at how sophisticated the L.M.D.s are and plan to steal one. While Fury submits to a trial a squad of A.I.M. men break into SHIELD's underground base. Fury shatters a viewport on the Heli-Carrier and leaps out to apparent death - but Sitwell equipped him with a parachute. Fury is met by Dugan as they prepare to take on A.I.M.

A pair of fleeing A.I.M. agents are met by one of the Secret Empire, which is a branch of "THEM"! The A.I.M. men are gassed unconscious by Gabe Jones working undercover. Jasper trails Royale to A.I.M.'s hidden base just before it explodes. Fury visits SHIELD's Museum for clues on HYDRA and is almost killed by an energy ray. Fury realizes "THEM" and HYDRA are one and the same, and it's up to SHIELD to stop them.

Indexer Notes

Part 5 of 5. Secret Empire storyline continues from Hulk story in TALES TO ASTONISH #83; then concludes in Sub-Mariner stories in TALES TO ASTONISH #83-85 (September-November 1966). "THEM" is revealed to be a cover-name for HYDRA; as they supplied The Fixer who appeared in STRANGE TALES #141-143 (February-April 1966), this means HYDRA has never really gone away at this point! It's revealed that Count Royale was not killed in the massive explosion, in the Captain America story in this month's TALES OF SUSPENSE #82 (October 1966), as Cap winds up facing one of A.I.M.'s artificial androids.
