·The Destroyer starring

Notes: The Destroyer was an early character supposedly created by Stan Lee, about a superhero working from within Nazi Germany. With art by Jack Binder, I guess the hero could have originated at a shop as well? I am not sure if Lee wrote all the Destroyer stories, but he did like to do phoney German accents, even in some of his text stories. - Ger Apeldoorn

  - The Mystic Line-Up

Notes: Great text story. The narrator introduces the editor of the book, who tells the reader why he has chosen these heroes for this book. As Stan Lee later would do in his stroies, he pretends that the heroes actually exist in the same universe as the editor. He also ends with a typical 'and there you have it, pals'. Some people have said Stan Lee's bantering with the readers was something he picked up from Lev Gleason, but here he's at it twenty years before the Fantastic Four came along. - Ger Apeldoorn.
