“Havoc in the Hidden Land!” / CAOS NEL GRANDE RIFUGIO !
The Fantastic Four travel with Quicksilver to the Hidden Land, which has been taken over by Xemu of the 5th Dimension.
When the FF lands in the area, they are easily taken prisoner by Xemu’s forces, and Xemu warns them that if they continue to take aggression towards him they will use the Thunder Horn on the world.
Breaking free, the FF fight off more of Xemu’s men and when Xemu threatens to use the Thunder Horn once more, it appears as though the Fantastic Four retreat so as not to trigger an attack.
However, the Invisible Girl has been their ace in the hole the whole time.
Having secreted aboard the FF’s pogo plane, she would use her invisibility powers to help free the Inhuman royal family including Black Bolt (the “ammunition” to the Thunder Horn).
The FF reappear and with the help of the Inhumans crush Xemu’s invasion of Earth’s dimension and smash his Thunder Horn.
Afterwords, Xemu and his men are returned to the 5th Dimension and taken into custody by the authorities there.
With Sue back in action, the group contemplates changing their name to the Fantastic Five, until Medusa explains that she can no longer be away from the Great Refuge any longer and decides to stay with Black Bolt. To celebrate Sue’s return to the Fantastic Four, Johnny decides to discard his orange and yellow costume in favor of the more traditional blue FF uniform, as a symbol of the teams reunification.

“Bury My Heart In the City of Gold” / LA CITTA’ DELL’ ORO (2a parte)
- Somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle, the lost Inca City of Gold, Florida
- Scully’s alien belt.
Continued from last issue…
Back in the City of Gold, Scully and his friends are led to a towering ziggurat which looks suspicuously like a good place for human sacrifice. As the sun rises a shadow is cast from the ziggurat that triggers the opening of pits that swallow up Ray, Anne and Jeff into one pit and Scully into another. The imperilled three must face a pair of chained pteranodons with just enough reach to tear their heads off.
Meanwhile Scully must go up against a four ton stegosaurus. Ann Reynolds decides she will dispatch the pteranodons with a grenade retreived from the corpse of a previous victim.
The belt that Scully retrieved from a dead alien a few days earlier begins to glow brightly and increases his strength giving him an advantage over the raging stegosaurus.
Seeing an opportunity to stage a coup, the High Priest Villac Umu pushes Viracocha the Supreme Inca into the pit with Scully and the stegosaurus. Oddly Viracocha begins to speak in colloquial American English which raises Scully’s suspicions.
Scully finishes off the stegosaurus which crashes through the wall into the next pit just as Ann detonates the grenade that kills the pteranodons. Viracocha then reveals that he is in fact Captain Victor Cochran, USN, “stranded thirty-one years ago and now resident Sun-God!” Next: The Sky Riders!
