First full DR. STRANGE cover; alternates with SHIELD until end of run in STRANGE TALES #168 (May 1968).
Images taken from interior Dr. Strange story.
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.
Part 17 of 17. Second appearance of Eternity. Previous appearance in STRANGE TALES #138 (November 1965). Next appearance in DR. STRANGE #180 (May 1969). Dormammu returns in DR. STRANGE #172 (September 1968). Clea's name finally revealed in this episode. Steve Ditko's last issue.
