  This one was odd, it felt like a deconstruction of other Timely superheroes. A supernatural being comes to America to fight crime, gets treated as a kook and decides to become a villain. It felt like the opposite of Namor's character arc

  Hey, suddenly somebody comes with the ethical question of killing or letting the criminals die. Maybe on the ephoc's time a girl's opinion on such a "man" matter was only cuteness, nonetheless the question came up (aside from cops) and not any late. Can that ice cube be found again???

  Hmm. I'm not familiar with Jack Frost, but I see he shows up again post-Silver Age. I guess this story is notable for a couple reasons.

First, it's another very early Stan Lee written tale. I think this might be the first proper comic credited to Stan too. The last one I remember was a text story.

And, following The Torch (not counting Toro, who's just a Torch copy really), Jack Frost is the second elemental super person in the order. And, I suppose an obvious precursor to Ice-Man who'll be quite a bit more prominent in the 60's and beyond.
