He ends up freeing a little girl with telepathic powers...
...who then decides that she doesn't have a place in this world, so she kills herself.
I'm usually a booster of Peter Gillis, who i think was generally unrecognized but quite good. This arc, however, wasn't so hot.

I do like the bit where Cap steely walks towards one of the bird-riders and tricks him and later tricks the rest into a mine field.

Just noticed you put "Steven Tuval" and "The Mind-Master" as two tags when they're one and the same. I guess though he really did have nothing to do with all the hippies moved out to the suburbs and getting jobs by the late 70s, though...

Thanks, Ataru. I've merged the tags.

I think this might be Golden Age artist Fred Kida's only penciling gig at Marvel, where he had been doing some work as an inker throughout the '70s. He's largely forgotten today, outside of GA enthusiasts who admire his work drawing the sexy Valkyrie in Airboy comics.

@Robert - Fred Kida also penciled What If #22, which featured the story "What if Doctor Doom had become a hero?"
I recently wrote a short piece on Kida's career that was published in Alter Ego #138.

Fred Kida also worked on the Spider-Man newspaper strip for a long time.

The idea of a sanctuary where super-villains can hide is a good one, and would fit in well with the other ideas, like the Taskmaster's school for Henchmen and the Tinkerer supplying gadgetry, etc., in making the MU more logical (albeit it might work better with fewer giant ostriches).
