Indexer Notes

Article has five small vignettes of reprinted characters associated with Stan Lee. They are all credited by AARP Magazine from those who provided the image source instead of the original creators.

The Captain America image from the cover of Captain America (Marvel, 1968 Series) #109 (January 1969). The Hulk image might be Marie Severin's redrawn version of the Hulk copied from the Jim Steranko cover of The Incredible Hulk Special (Marvel, 1968 series) #1 (October 1968). The Iron Man image from the cover of Iron Man (Marvel, 1968 Series) #29 (September 1970). The Black Panther image from Jungle Action (Marvel, 1972 series) #10 (July 1974), though the costume is repaired in this image compared to the cover. Unable to identify source of Spider-Man image.

The article is divided into five parts:
Part 1: A Bag of Money;
Part 2: An Irresistible Temptation;
Part 3: The Protectors;
Part 4: What Just Happened?;
Part 5: A Free Man That Night; and
Part 6: Love and Theft.
