The first appearance of Rama Tut, who would become Kang the Conqueror in Avengers #8, and then, much much later, became Nathaniel Richards and then Iron Lad of the Young Avengers.  Dude gets around.
But my favorite part of this issue isn’t when Rama rides the Sphinx in from outer space–though that’s cool as hell–but it’s this little lovers’ quarrel at right. You see, they went back in time because Rama Tut supposedly found a cure for blindness, and Thing was all excited for his gal-pal Alicia Masters.

Yeah, they were dating even back then.  Longer than Sam and Diane.
