Louie: Help! I’ve been robbed!
Spiderman: Hang on, Louie.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Dr. Cool: Millions!
Henchman: When the clock strikes, we strike! Neat haul, eh, Dr. Cool?
Dr. Cool: My midnight hauls are always neat, aren’t they Gaur? Better put the ice on ice.
Henchman: Wow, what a front for hard ice.
Dr. Cool: Yes, we will set the thermostat for absolute zero. In this super frosted form, it will be impossible to discern our hot ice from the ordinary variety.

Then, right under the noses of international customs, we will make the customary shipments at customary profits.

Henchman: Yeah Doc, a real gem of a setup. I wonder what we’ll get for this.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: About ten to twenty years, I guess!
Henchman: Spiderman!
Spiderman: Of course there is always time off for good behavior. And you fellows are going to behave, aren’t you?

Henchman: Oh year? Get this!
Spiderman: Get this!
Dr. Cool: Gar, I suggest you take this gentleman’s advice.
Henchman: But Doc.
Dr. Cool: It appears he has us at the advantage.
Spiderman: I bow to your good sense.
Dr. Cool: Just what the doctor ordered.

How cold!

Tie him up.
If you can hear me, Web Wonder, in your semi-stupor, know then that I prescribe for your meddlesome intrusion, this chilling fix.

When we leave here, the temperature will drop to minus four-hundred and fifty-nine (459) degrees — absolute zero.

At that temperature, all your body’s molecular motion will suddenly cease!

And since this refrigeration unit is nuclear powered, you will probably keep forever on ice!

And you have heard, have you not web wonder, of the incredible delusion that come in the mind as it numbs. Yes, people imagine all sorts of things before their frozen doom!

Now, you shall see!

Sweet dreams!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: Umf! Hard to get leverage. Still weak. But I’ve got to get loose before the cold takes over. Mercury is dropping fast — towards absolute zero!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: It sure feels good to move again. I guess the nuclear power ran down, in record time.

Wow! How long have I been sleeping. All this wasn’t here before. I would have remembered when I came in . . . and how long ago was that?

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: Good grief!

The beasts have taken over. But how? Why?

Cave men!

I’ve got to keep my senses. I’ve got to keep my head. Despite all that’s going on, however it happened, and however I got here, I’ve got to survive.

Now, get cracking!

Get set for a bring down.

Oh, oh. Time to get some altitude.

Better hang on.

Looks like the end of the line.

I wonder what . . . hey, what’s this?
