The Man Who Shrunk the World-Jack Kirby/DickAyers-1961

Just because the Marvel superheroes weren't really around yet doesn't mean Kirby couldn't create a Marvel super-villain. Here's one now, in fact. Note the ad for the FF on the last page. There would soon be lots more super-villains. In fact, Marvel being Marvel, I'm surprised they never brought this guy back...or did they?

Huh, Paste-Pot-Pete's costume wasn't an original design.

I was going to bring up Paste Pot Pete/ the Trapster, but apparently Mr. McCall beat me to it. BTW, your blog is pretty nifty. You unearth a lot of buried treasure. Great job!

Poor Roderick Kane. An advanced degree from the year 5000, and he can't even set the time machine's Century selector correctly. Looks like he ought to end up in 1861.
