STORY 1: On their way back to Atlantis following their battle against the Gnome, the Sub-Mariner and Dorma come across a domed city at the oceans floor, built there by surface dwellers. Namor is furious that the surface dwellers would place such a city near Atlantis and decides to go and demand to speak to the creator of this city. Upon reaching the domed city, he is attacked by a pair of surface men in diving gear and fights them off. Namor is about to flee to Atlantis in order to return with an army when he is confronted by the cities creator Dr. Walter Newell, who offers Namor to come and talk.

Boarding Newell's craft, the prince of Atlantis agrees to listen to Walter's words on Droma's urgings. Aboard Newell's craft, Namor is told that Newell has come up with a project to deal with the surface world's growing population, finding a solution to finding space for all the people by building domed cities on the oceans floor. Despite Newell's offer of fair trade for allowing this plan to continue, Namor refuses, finding the offer worthless.

STORY 2: En route to the planet Wundagore 2 to be used as a solution to the rebellion of the Knights of Wundagore, the Hulk is completely unaware that he is to be used as a pawn for the High Evolutionary. With Sir Ram knocked out, the High Evolutionary tries to warn the ship that they are about to fly into a cosmic radiation storm, to no avail.

When Sir Ram revives and realizes the truth, it is too late and the entire ship is bombarded with radiation. The resulting bombardment kills Sir Ram and causes Hulk to transform back into Bruce Banner. When the ship arrives on Wundagore 2, the High Evolutionary is shocked to find Banner instead of the Hulk. However, the High Evolutionary realizes that he can still use Banner to solve his problem. Distracting Banner by showing him his scientific achievement, the Evolutionary uses a weapon to knock out Banner and place him on a machine that will advance Banner's evolution by ten million years, so that he can use the advanced being against the invading Knights of Wundagore.
