otoboke's Tales to Astonish #42 - The Voice Of Doom! review

The Voice Of Doom!

Boy, Larry Lieber and company sure loved to have medical emergencies in their Ant-Man books. This week Pym foils a bad guy by infecting him with laryngitis. Yep.

A bad guy that gets THE VOICE OF TRUTH by speaking into a microphone that is affected by—you guessed it!—a wave of radiation from a nearby power plant and starts hating on Ant-Man like the maniac that he is. But really, Stan, Larry, you don't need a voice of truth to convince people that Ant-Man should drown. We know.

Also the thought of Hank...
