STRANGE TALES #117 (1964)

This is what a jailbreak looks like in 1964.

Only no.  He’s just running in his costume for fun.

But Human Torch knows that only guilty people run.  But see the 1896 case of Hickory vs. U.S.

But of course Torch is right and Eel has a water-jet copter and a terrific evil laugh.

Susan Storm doesn’t understand how water helicopters work and Johnny doesn’t understand how aquariums work.

And the Eel meets an ironic fate, while giving us a science lesson about electric eels.

Stupid and silly but fun.

On the Dr. Strange side…

…It’s more Baron Mordo hijinks.  Well drawn and unusual, but nothing earthshaking.

Mordo does kidnap Strange’s house though.
