It's another wooden creature (like Groot) seeking to take over the world...
...in this never-reprinted Steve Ditko-rendered story!
Thought it was going to just be a replay of "I Challenged Groot! The Monster from Planet X!"?
To give Stan Lee credit, he knew how to do variations on a theme!
This was the final tale in Atlas' Strange Tales #100 (1962), the final anthology issue of the series.
Beginning with the next issue, The Human Torch's solo strip would debut, and the title would become (like Journey into Mystery, Tales of Suspense, and Tales to Astonish), a superhero book with a couple of unrelated backups.
This, and several other Ditko tales from the era, have never been reprinted, and will be re-presented here over the next few months!
Watch for them!
