Steve Ditko offers an 8-page story about Machine Man taking down a villain robot. It’s hard to make a short story like this “matter,” but it is a great way to check in on a character who doesn’t otherwise have a vehicle to tell his story. It helps keep us, as fans of the Marvel Universe, in touch with the more esoteric characters who some of us miss. This is exactly what this comic should be doing in its shorter stories that don’t span multiple issues.
