When Future Man is seemingly stopped at every turn by the All-Winners Squad members, he threatens to make a call for help into the future, requesting hundreds of future men be sent by giant spaceships armed with Neutronic Bombs! However, the Squad attacks before this can happen, and, by a quirk of fate, controls on the villain's ship are locked to keep going far in the past, thus ending the threat of future attackers.

Indexer Notes

The next All-Winners Squad story is in What If? (Marvel, 1977 series) #4, which occurs chronologically before this one and retroactively establishes that the post-war Captain America and Bucky here are Jeff Mace (a.k.a. The Patriot) and Fred Davis. The next chronological appearance of the All-Winners Squad, Future Man and Madame Death is in All Winners Comics 70th Anniversary Special (Marvel, 2009 Series) #1.
