METAL MEN (1963) (#1-56) (DC) #25 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Metal Men #25
"Return of Chemo the Chemical Menace!" is drawn by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. Chemo is a gigantic, gurgling mass of caustic and toxic chemicals granted life by very strange circumstances. As evil menaces go, Chemo's goals are fairly simple he wants to flood the world with chemical liquids and rule it with the beautiful Platinum of the Metal Men as his queen. The Metal Men have beaten him before but this time, things are a bit hairier. Doc Magnus lies in a coma after suffering injury from a lab explosion. Platinum refuses to leave his side so newly elected leader Gold has to head the team with Mercury arguing all the way.

After dealing with a series of relatively normal, if not annoying, crimes, accidents and disasters, the Metal Men encounter Chemo threatening one of the city's main bridges. Lead gets added to the casualty list as the robots save the bridge but lose track of Chemo. After relocating him in the bay about to destroy a freighter, the Metal Men send Iron to pound the giant chemical monster into the mud even as Chemo corrodes him savagely. This only slows Chemo for a moment as his next target appears to be the Statue of Liberty. Tin and Nameless are eliminated next. With Mercury arguing over Gold's leadership and Platinum refusing to leave Doc's bedside to help, the amazing robotic team is in a real struggle for their artificial lives with fewer and fewer among their ranks.
