Avengers Assemble - Mole Man

The 41st of 51 sketch cards done for the Avengers Assemble trading card series by Upper Deck.

Remember that issue (Avengers #40) where Namor and the Avengers were fighting over the Cosmic Cube, then it falls into a crack in the ground and lands at Mole Man’s feet and then he tosses it away thinking it’s just a toy?
You don’t?
Well, it’s a good thing I just summed it up for you then.
A great ending to a comic; 3 panels out of nowhere, wrapping up the story yet leaving an opening for a new one. Fun stuff.
Comics aint what they used to be...

Harvey Rupert Elder, aka the Mole Man, (and Moloids) created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
First appearance: Fantastic Four #1, 1961
