FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) (#1-416) (MARVEL) #116 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Fantastic Four (1961) #116
Double-sized issue. "The Alien, the Ally and Armageddon!" is written by Archie Goodwin with John Buscema and Joe Sinnott illustrating. The last of the star-conquering Eternals, Overmind, has come to Earth with the power of a billion minds and the drive to continue his dead race's conquest. Mr. Fantastic has fallen under his mental control and has left the Baxter Building with his new master. But Reed Richards has left enough clues behind so that the rest of the FF can track him down. The Human Torch and the Thing do just that, but find the Overmind to be too powerful for them. Even the Invisible Woman's famous force field can't contain his power.

With the Avengers, Daredevil, the Sub-Mariner and Spider-Man each on their own missions of great importance, the Invisible Woman feels there's no one else to turn to. It's then that Agatha Harkness, the witch who nannies young Franklin Richards, convinces her only Doctor Doom can come to Earth's now. The Latverian dictator at first resists the notion of helping the FF and then sees its wisdom; for if Earth falls so does Doom! Valiantly, Dr. Doom leads the FF into battle against the Overmind and the mind-controlled Mr. Fantastic. Still, they are defeated but in the ensuing battle, the last of the Eternals expends enough power to catch the attention of the cosmically powered Stranger who dispatches Overmind to a sub-atomic universe! Whew!
