Unusual Tales - The Supermen
"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.
"The Supermen" is a 6-page story from Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #3 , a story about radiation, mutation and evolution, or something like that. Very entertaining story with a memorable twist at the end. Another favourite among Ditko's 1950s stories.
Note the normal presentation of the images in stories posted here would give away the ending to this one even more than usual, so I've modified it slightly. Clicking on that final image will give you the actual page.
