Synopsis

In prehistoric times, a flying manta ray survives a "radioactive storm" and is encased in ice. Today, it breaks free and soars over the coast, zapping lighthouses, jets, and the Chrysler Building with laser-eyes. The Joint Chiefs send Col. Casper to Dr. Will Magnus's vast laboratory complex. Magnus dances with a platinum robot - who talks! To fight the "creature", Magnus creates five more robots: Gold, Lead, Iron, Mercury, and Tin. "Meet the Metal Men!" A UHF TV shows the creature tearing up a cable bridge. "We're going to battle it!"

Notes

This story reprints the introduction and origin of Dr. Will Magnus and the Metal Men.
