What an odd little tale.
Two mysterious figures meet on Mars and mistrust and miscommunication rule the day.
There’s a twist, but it just seems pointless.

  Ugh. That's about all one can say. Ugh.

  -Kudos to whoever was pawing through these sh*tty anthology books and noticed the 2 words that brought this into The CMRO--Not!

  If it wasn't clear already, "Hydra" and "SHIELD" were edited in for the reprint. Originally it was "International Communism" and just "the good ol' USA!"

  Pointless tale that was altered from Strange Tales #84.

  Good for a short story. Wasn't as bad as what everyone is making out.

  Silly little story. Didn't mind it. Though it is now canon that both SHIELD and Hydra have interplanetary spacecraft capabilities?

  It was a cool little sci-fi story that did not need Hydra and Shield added in.

  I found this one kind of entertaining and oddball, although I think it works much better in its original format from Strange Tales #84. The original works as a product of its time; using SHIELD and Hydra doesn't work here because it makes both agents quite out of character.

1 star; would've been 2 stars if left unedited.

  Did SHIELD and Hydra both have a 'design the weirdest spacesuit' contest or something?

  1 star. This is the second time that they added SHIELD and Hydra too an older story! And it still doesn't fit well!!Although, I did like Ditko's spacesuits!!!

  A knockdown, dragout fight of a pickle vs a banana.
