Cover Date: May 1969
Cover Price: US $ 0.25

Issue Tagline: None.

Format: Color; Standard Comic Issue; 64 pages

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Synopsis:
An ALL-NEW 24-page story starring Dr. Doom and revealing hitherto unknown details of his early life and love. Written and illustrated by Larry Lieber.

Sub-Mariner Comics (1941) #40
Young Men (1950) #24

Notes:
This issue is highlighted by a complete reprinting of YOUNG MEN #24, "the very ish that re-introduced Torch, Subby and Cap to a waiting world!" As an added bonus, even that classic comic's cover is reprinted (purists will lament that the two-page text story, "A Traitor Among Us," was left on the production room floor).
