  3 stars for the Red Skull cubed!!!

Cover Me - Like other before me have said...sweet cover!

Deadline - The art seemed rushed this issue. Maybe Don Heck was brought in the last second to ink over Kirby?

'Nuff Said - "I, who am the Prince of Villainy, serve none!"-Red Skull

  The Red Skull knocks it out of the park in this one! So evil! So haughty! Kirby and Heck make him look certifiably insane too... really nice artwork on him in this one. He's so contemptible in this story, I'd like to see him and Dr. Doom in a trash-talking contest. Who'd win?

Seriously... WHO WOULD WIN?!?

  Suddenly there are too many secret organizations to keep track of - A.I.M? THEM? The Secret Empire? Sheesh!

Otherwise, as others have noted, the Red Skull looks perfectly villainous here! Cap better watch out now that he has the cosmic cube!

  I was surprised to see the red skull command someone to kill themselves in a comic of this era.

  The red skull is a mask, the Cosmic Cube is a terrestrial invention*... Last ish disappointing art, this ish disappointing revelations...
(* implied. They have left just enough wriggle room in the wording for it not to be - does Advanced Idea Mechanics' greatest achievement get retconned as a discovery later on? Stay tuned...)

  1. Jumping from a rocket onto a slower plane. Yeah, that’s gonna work.
  2. “So long as evil lives–to muster the forces of bigotry, greed, and oppression–the fight goes on!” Oh, please. Give me a break. No one talks like that. No one thinks like that.
  3. And it gets worse. Red Skull is a walking ad against himself.
  4. So is his skull a mask, or is it him? It seems to go back and forth.

Gods, that was bad. Not as bad as the Torch Strange Tales, but pretty close. ★½

  The whole "I'm evil muhahah" spiel was dumb, but wow him commanding his lackey to off himself was stone cold and pretty dark for a 60s comic. I'm not sure if I'm biased because I know what the Cosmic Cube will turn into later, but it definitely seems a little less lame and corny than the usual god-tier stuff of this Era of comics.
