Issue(s): Micronauts #24, Micronauts #25, Micronauts #26, Micronauts #27, Micronauts #28
...and then fight Mentallo and the Fixer.
Meanwhile, the back-up Tales of the Micronauts stories continue to lead up to the resurrection of Baron Karza...
...and that becomes the main story after the Mentallo/Fixer plot.
Karza has allied himself with Hydra, so the Micronauts team up with SHIELD to defeat them in a pretty epic battle.
Karza was resurrected in the body of King Argon.
Brief cameo by Captain America, Iron Man, and the Vision. Fury sends an SOS message but it fails to reach them.
A Prince Pharoid, leader of the Aegyptians, joins the cast of the Micronauts in these issues (first as part of the back-ups, then the main story). He's not particularly interesting except that every time i see him i have to remind myself that Nighthawk isn't in this book.
Some pretty significant casualties during this war. Biotron dies. Queen Esmera, the ruler of Bug's people, stabs Karza with her suicide sting, killing her. Acroyear summons his planet's World Mind to fight Baron Karza, and his world is destroyed in the process (actually, the traitor Shaitan summons the planet but Acroyear wields it once it's arrived). The Enigma Force is driven out of Commander Rann's brain, rendering him comatose
These issues were kind of fun. Tons of stuff crammed into the art. The scripting, unfortunately, is a bit of a chore to get through, though.
Issue #24 has a map of the Micronauts' homeworld.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Just have to be careful of the Avengers' placement, especially Iron Man's since he's on vacation in the Caribbean between Iron Man #141 and #142.
Continuity Insert? N

Odd John was a science fiction novel by Olaf Stapledon, and was written long before Farmer was on the scene.
