Synopsis
Lita Munro, upset at being dumped by the Link, drives to London. Dr. Viktor Kelso has been found in a mindless state; the police blame the Link for his condition. Meanwhile, the Animal Man, star of Bigby's Circus, decides that the time is right to demonstrate his ability to control all animals. Chaos ensues. He broadcasts his intention to take over the whole country. The link hears the broadcast. He realizes that he cannot battle the Animal Man himself as he is a wanted man. He breaks into a costumiers shop and, with the help of some make-up and a new outfit, emerges as Johnny Future!

Indexer Notes

The Missing Link strip finally completes its evolution into "Johnny Future", the title by which the strip would be known from the next issue.

Indexer Notes

Some captions relettered to replace Americanisms with their British counterparts e.g. "Baseball stadium" becomes "football stadium". Some Iron Man stories were reprinted out of published sequence. This created a problem for the editors of Fantastic, because he changed his armor in Tales of Suspense #48 to the familiar red and gold version. In order to avoid confusion for British readers, Iron Man's armor was redrawn in Fantastic #15-20 to resemble the newer model.
