Basically: The writer (mostly Stan) writes a short synopsis, sends it to the artist, who draws the whole thing, and then sends it back to the writer, who fills in the dialogue. And while Stan did this last step, he must've noticed a continuity mistake Don Heck made: Captain America attacks a group of four gangsters, but when the fight really starts, only three enemies remain. So Cap suddenly says: "One of the thugs ran away!" And to really drive the point home: When the police appears after the fight is over, they immediately say "We captured the one that ran away", without being asked, even though they have no reason to connect the fleeing man to this robbery, unless they were close enough to help Cap.During the fight we have another case of "poor, weak Captain America", when he says, it's a good thing he tackled them, because Iron Man or Thor could've really hurt them. We also habe Rick Jones tackling a huge, muscly man, only to get knocked away. I might ask, why Cap still hasn't pulled the plug of him becoming a sidekick, even though Rick is little more than a teenager...but I'd rather ask: In the pages of Tales to Astonish, it's been established, that Rick is back with the Hulk, helping him! And he won't leave there for a while...is he just travelling back and forth all the time?The Mole Man basically plans to kill everyone on the surface and then come back up to kill him. Although speeding up the rotation is an excellent way to kill on a global scale...having the earth stop abruptly not only needs more energy, than should exist on earth, but it would also pretty much wreck the core as well...next to, you know, hurting the integrity of the earth to an insanely degree. Moly, that was poorly thought out.As was the pacing of this issue: A lot of time at the beginning is spent with everyone laughing at Giant-Man, until he gets captured. Halfway though the issue, Stan takes his time to show off Cap once more while fighting the Thugs (and again he uses low-level villains to glorify Captain America, which by now just hurts...), before they finally descend. And then, in the last third of the issue, he suddenly decides to throw in a SECOND villain with the Red Ghost, who got a power upgrade and got rid of his apes...Being at least a bit used to rushed endings, the creative team at least managed to keep the last couple of pages in one consistent fast pace, showing off multiple attacks from one sides and the counter from the other, before letting Ant-Man save the day, surprisingly in a logical, not deus-ex-machina-way. It's all still rushed, but not as bad as they did before...they seem to have caught themselves early enough.
