Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!
The Molecule Man reconstitutes himself. The Silver Surfer stumbles onto him and, after mentioning Galactus to him, the Molecule Man decides that he will eat the earth. Silver Surfer tries to stop him, but is defeated, captured in molecules which drain his energy. His surfboard goes to the Baxter building to get help from the Fantastic Four. They are not there, however. The Avengers show up, and Tigra hops on the surf board, which then takes her to the Surfer, with the other Avengers following. The Surfer explains what has happened. They go after the Molecule Man, to find that he has surrounded half of New Jersey with a nearly impenetrable barrier of hardened air. Tigra slips through a small hole the other Avengers make, and runs to the Molecule Man without waiting for the others. She starts talking to him, then the other Avengers and the Surfer show up. He dissolves Thor's hammer, Cap's shield, Iron Man's armor, and the Surfer's board. Then he puts the four of them in a giant press, and apparently crushes them to death. Tigra says that she likes the Molecule Man so that he will spare her life.
