Synopsis for "The Wonder of the Ages! Magnetor!"Edit

Strange Tales Vol 1 84 001
A man, mocked and ridiculed for his large size and low intelligence, volunteers to be the first man in space and passes through a radioactive anti-matter cloud which grants him magnetic powers. He uses these powers to take revenge on those who tormented him, but the powers soon wear off. Because a selfish promoter who tried to exploit the giant for profit (but failed because his low intelligence made him unable to partake in competitive sports) knows why the giant man is lashing out at those who made taunts, he tells his story to the authorities. They plant a story to go out over the radio that tells of a new rocket to the stars. Magneto sneaks aboard, and after the ship blasts off, the radio comes to life and tells him that they know he's aboard and they built the craft to take him to habitable planet where he can achieve the peace that he's been denied on Earth.

Synopsis for "They Met on Mars!"Edit

Strange Tales Vol 1 84 015
Two beings encounter each other on Mars. They each assume the other to be hostile and the green one retreats to his spaceship and takes off. The blue one thinks he's won the faceoff, but the green uses his ship's weapons to destroy the blue one's spaceship and then returns home. The way Ditko draws them, they appear as though they could be aliens, but the end of the story reveals them to be an American astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut wearing space suits that prevented them from even recognizing each other as fellow human beings.
