Grade:
CGC NM+: 9.6
Still trying to find the feel and style of the series, in this issue, Lee and Kirby introduce a traditional villain, The Vanisher, meant to plague our teenaged heroes by teleporting and transporting himself with his mutant powers, eventually developing a scheme whereby he holds national secrets hostage, demanding millions of dollars from the US government in an exciting standoff on the lawn of the White House. The use of the mutant hero/villain motif eventually became the backbone of much of the Marvel line, but this charming and telling early issue shows the foundations still being laid for hero greatness to come.

The colors are vibrant and deep while the corners are square and true. Only 2 copies in the world grade higher.
