Indexer Notes

This story took place during Iron Man's original tenure as an Avenger. Readers of, Terrific!, a sister magazine, were concurrently reading reprints of The Avengers from the era of "Cap's Kooky Quartet", i.e. after all of the founder members had taken a leave of absence. The presence of Thor, Giant-Man and Wasp serving as Avengers in this story was explained in two new captions (panel 3 of page 3 and panel 6 of page 4). Readers were told "- this story dates from the time when the original Avengers were still operating together."; An additional caption appended to the final panel urges readers not to miss the next issue.
