CGC certified: VF+ (8.5). White pages. Roy Thomas script. Cover by John Buscema and Sol Brodsky. Art by Buscema and Frank Giacoia. Origin retold.

Marvel's 1968 expansion saw Iron Man, Captain America, Sub-Mariner, Doctor Strange and others get solo titles after years of sharing space in Tales to Astonish, Strange Tales and Tales of Suspense. Prior to 1968, a bad distribution deal limited Marvel's output to a handful of titles. The 1968 expansion allowed Marvel the leverage to finally overtake DC as sales leader.
