Machine Man is on trial for his life. Literally. Because he does not have a lawyer, his trial is halted until he can get one. Spending the night at Dr. Spaulding’s house to await the trial he awakes to find Spaulding kidnapped and a set of instructions on what to do and where to go to get him back.
A pretty slow-burning issue with not a lot going on whatsoever. A little wee bit of action as X-51 and Spaulding are attacked on the road home by some guy who made a robot in his garage, but other than that, everything else is of the verbal kind. The art is beautiful of course; all thanks to Jack Kirby and his prolific pencil but it would have been nice if a little more happened to keep our interest piqued.
