It's nice to see a villainous plan to actually succeed, a few hick-ups notwithstanding. And, well, not counting in the Power Sues shield can withstand. But even it has limits, as is seen by them still being affected and...Ben turning human again.

We also get Paste-Pot-Petes new name: Trapster! And...yeah, it defintely had more dignity than PPP, but his old name had a Silver Age-charm to it...still probably the better choice. And way better than Wizard trying to call himself the Wingless Wizard. Speaking of the Wizard, while they still show his limitations, it's nice to see how far he went: From a second-rate trapster of his own and enemy of the Torch because...because, to someone, who found his true calling with antigravity to such an intensity, that he can blow away the Sandman, the Trapster and Medusa with his powers. While still a low light compared to other FF-villains, he at least qualified as a threat by now.

Overall, nice issue!

An evil Madam Medusa easily captures the lovely Invisible Girl by luring her to an Eastside fashion house. Susan Storm is then abducted by the Frightful Four. They take her to a Pacific island, where Wizard leads his allies to an underground bunker and orders that the unconscious girl be placed on the floor next to the detonation mechanism of his Q-bomb, a powerful nuclear device. The FF soon follow in an attempt to rescue Sue, but the Frightful Four escape before the blast goes off, leaving the FF with their first defeat!
