Avengers #40

"Suddenly...the Sub-Mariner!"

essentially, Namor finds the Cosmic Cube and figures out how to use it, and the Avengers, plus Hercules have to stop him.  I believe this is historic for the being the first time Hercules and Namor have met.  I have to believe that Herc would have mopped the floor with the Sub-Mariner.  It would have been cool if Herc had dropped the fact that he is on a first name basis with Poseidon/Neptune, since that's someone that Namor has met in the past as well.
Wanda has a dizzy spell, so Pietro stays with her in this adventure.  Cap, who is battling the Red Skull warns the Avengers about the Cosmic Cube (Tales of  Suspense 80-81 are taking place at this very same moment in the MU.  it's an all action story, and a lot of fun.

the ending is kind of interesting as well.  I'm not a fan of the Cube at all, it's a ridiculous concept even for comic books.

next- Diablo and the Dragon Man!
