  3 stars for Electro a true marvel of the age!!! I also like the idea of Pro. Zog and his 12 good men!!

Splash - I like the title panel for Electro!!!

No Prize - They mixed up Toby with Mike on p4!!!

A Star Is Born - Why, Joyce Lovely is a little darling even when being held for ransom!!!

'Nuff Said - "Please send me a dozen husky, intelligent young men--"-Pro. Zesty Zog

  First Marvel super team? Electro and the "dozen husky young men"

"The dynamic Iron Man", eh? That sounds familiar.

  Let's see...over at Quality they had Bozo the Robot who had a man inside controlling it. Electro was also the name of the smoking robot at the New York World's Fair.

Not a horrible story, though. Three Stars.

  Could this be the origin of the bluetooth device? A small wireless telephone apparatus where small they have to do is press the button and speak?

  Actually a pretty compelling introduction to these characters. I'm a bit disappointed that Dick Gardner seems to be a one-off, because he was pretty cool too, but I look forward to future actions of Electro and Zog.
