Indexer Notes

Narrated in the first person. This story is a retelling of "Men in Black" by Stan Lee and John Romita, Jr. from Menace (Marvel, 1953 series) #3 (May 1953). The hoods are more clearly a reference to the Ku Klux Klan than in the original (they are not randomly chosen disguises, but something the bigot's "pappy left me when he died"). Lee credited as writer on the basis of his authorship of the original and later retelling.
