Part 1: "The Merciless Puppet Master"
The Fantastic Four are returning home after having defeated the Red Ghost on the Moon ( Fantastic Four #13
). Upon landing at Idlewild Airport, they are greeted by a massive crowd. Each member of the Fantastic Four has their own problems as people all want something from them. The Human Torch whisks the team off to the Baxter Building by creating a warm air funnel.
Back home, Mr. Fantastic finishes his report on the moon trip for NASA, then goes looking for the Sue. He finds her, operating his "Roving-Eye" camera, which is focused on the bottom of the sea. He guesses that she is searching for Namor, and then realizes that for all of his powers and intellect, he still can't conquer Sue's heart.
Meanwhile, at a sanitarium, the Puppet Master receives a discharge, having been deemed sane. He reveals that he survived the fall after his fight with the Fantastic Four, and has been hiding for months to let the world forget him. The Puppet Master then decides that he'll use a scapegoat to fight the Fantastic Four, and after going through some of their past enemies, decides to use Namor to fight them for him!
