Meanwhile, hearing of the Vulture's defeat of Spider-Man, Kraven becomes furious that he was denied his right to defeat the wall-crawler and vows to hunt down this new Vulture and make him pay. The Vulture meanwhile, is taking advantage of the absence of Spider-Man in order to commit as many crimes as possible. However, his activities bring him into conflict Kraven.

Synopsis for "The Prince and the Power!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Tales to Astonish #89

Continued from last issue...

With full control over the alien Servo-Robot, Attuma orders it to attack Atlantis and destroy the Sub-Mariner. The robot manages to smash through the gates of the underwater city and easily fights off the Atlantean army, prompting the Sub-Mariner to swim into action. Try as he might, Namor cannot seem to damage the gigantic robot.

With a frontal assault a failure, Namor calls upon the creatures of the sea to come to his aid. First sending a pod of sharks after the robot, then ordering a giant whale to try and swallow the robot, and not even an army of octopi are able to stop the massive robot.

When all seems lost the robot is suddenly captured in a transparent dome and pulled to the surface. Namor and Dorma swim up to see what has captured the robot and see that it's alien masters -- having noticed it's absence from their ship -- have come to collect it and leave the Earth without further incident.

Namor then returns to his kingdom where he witnesses Attuma fleeing following this defeat.
