Continuing the (near) chronological retelling of the history of the Marvel Universe, in this issue the following events are recounted:

- The Human Torch's solo adventure into the 5th Dimension where he battled the tyrant Zemu, and freed the people who lived there.
- Ant Man's first encounter with his long time foe Egghead.
- Thor's adventure into the Soviet Union to save captured scientists, an episode that was complicated due to the interference of Loki.
- Rick Jones using a Gamma device to change Bruce Banner's mutation into the Hulk, for the first time Banner is able to utilize his Hulk body with the intelligence of Bruce Banner.
- The first time the Fantastic Four experience financial problems.
- And ending on a similar note, Spider-Man's first adventure in which he tries to rescue John Jameson's space capsule from destruction, despite the bad press from Jameson's father, editor of the Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson.
