Synopsis for "The Black Knight"

The Black Knight witnesses the Lady of the Lake rising out of the water before him. She carries the mythical sword Excalibur and offers it to him. The Black Knight takes the sword and examines it confirming that it is indeed the real sword. While he was busy examining the blade, the Lady of the Lake disappears as mysteriously as she appeared.

Soon the Black Knight is reunited with Moondog who comes riding in on King Vortigan's wolf Lupe. The wolf is struck and killed by a lightning bolt hurled by the evil walker Cormanc who then pits his power against the Black Knight.

Enthralled by Cormac's hypnotic power, the Black Knight appears to be defenseless. However, the power of Excalibur is stronger than the mystic's power. When Cormac tries to move in for the kill, Excalibur takes control of the Knight's hand and has it cut off Cormac's hand. With their foe crippled, the Black Knight is freed from Cormac's control. With the battle over, the Black Knight tells Moondog that they must continue on to Otherworld and they are soon flying onto the next stretch of their quest on the back of Valinor.

Synopsis for "Ant-Man"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Tales to Astonish #43
(originally printed as The Astonishing Ant-Man Verses the Mad Master of Time!)

Our story begins with Ant-Man rushing back to his lab. Along the way he crosses paths with a young boy delivering a telegram and is almost flattened by it. After addressing the public, Ant-Man makes his exit. The boy delivers his telegram to Professor Elias Weems. Opening the envelope, Weems finds that the telegram is from his grandson Tommy who is coming to visit him on vacation. Excited that his grandson is coming to visit Weems hopes to show him the many things he is working at at his job at Modern Scientific Research Company. However, as fate would have it, a week later, Weems is let go because company policy does not allow anybody to work for them past age sixty-five.

Angered by the fact of being fired only because of his age, Weems plans revenge against society for being so cruel and constructs a device that speeds up the aging process. Completing the device, he tests it out on a tree, a baby elephant, and a young woman before finding that it is perfect.

Calling himself the "Time Master", Weems sends a letter to the police demanding control of the entire city or else he will prematurely age the entire population. Learning of this through his spy ants, Ant-Man manages to track down and confront Weems at his home. Weems uses his aging gun on Ant-Man and attempts to trap him in a flower pot. Weems then leaves to start aging the entire city, not suspecting that Ant-Man can free himself by growing back to his normal height.

Tracking Weems down, he finds the scientist on a rooftop aging the people in the crowd gathering below him. Ant-Man rushes to stop Weems, but Weems stops himself when he realizes that his grandson Tommy is in the crowd and has been prematurely aged as well. Attempting to reverse the process, Weems fumbles and drops the device off the side of the building, but it is caught by Ant-Man's army of ants. Ant-Man then instructs somebody in the crowd to use the device to change everybody back to normal, and Weems surrenders to the police.

Pleading to the judge, Ant-Man and the owner of Modern Scientific Research Company convince any charges to be waived, and Weems is given his job back. Weems' first order of business is to show his grandson around the lab where he works.

The Night Raven is being stalked by Khan, the tiger owned by Yi Yang, the leader of the Dragon Tong.

The masked man decides to pay his leave to get away from the tiger.

Mortally wounded, Dragonfire begs Yi Yang to call her tiger off. Seeing this weakness as failure, the tong leader shoots Dragonfire dead. Seeing Night Raven scaling a nearby building, Yi Yang rushes up to meet him with her tiger Khan.

(originally printed as What If the Hulk Had The Brain of Bruce Banner?)

Bruce Banner, Reed Richards and Charles Xavier constructed an improved version of Cerebro called the Psychotron which merged them physically and mentally into one being, X-Man. They were forced to use it (as it only worked once before blowing up), to defend the world from Galactus. They won the battle, at the expense of all of their super powers, and inadvertently turning Thing into a mindless monster, much like the Hulk.

Notes

Continuity Notes

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

  • Nick Fury believed that Yellow Claw was dead, stating that he "saw the last of him" years ago. Some points on this:
    • Yellow Claw was actually last seen in Nova #18 where he seemingly died when his ship exploded during a battle against Nova and Nick Fury. That story was published in 1978, about a year between publications, or -- more accurate -- roughly a few months earlier per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616.
    • Claims of Yellow Claw's mind being transplanted into a computer are false, as he is shown in a fully functional body in his next appearance in Avengers #204. Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z #13 confirms that this the claims of his physical death were a ruse used to trick Nick Fury.
