Synopsis
Ben and Johnny's hi-jinks are interrupted by the arrival of a pair of LIFE Magazine reporters, who are there to interview Reed and Sue. When the news reports Sub-Mariner is heading for NYC, Ben and Johnny figure they can make an impression by tackling him on their own. Taking out the "U-Car," they find Namor, who seems to be expecting them. A fight breaks out, ending when Namor leaves, feeling he's been "lied to." Reed and Sue arrive and Ben and Johnny are chastising for ruining the peace talk Reed spent weeks to set up. A betrayed Namor vows that their next fight will be to the finish.

Indexer Notes

Sub-Mariner last appears in X-Men #6 (July 1964) and next appears in Fantastic Four #33 (December 1964). Namor's "electric eel" power crops up again, for the last time. The reporters from LIFE suspiciously resemble Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber.
