Inferior Five #2

Inferior Five #2 (On Sale: March 16, 1967) has a cover by Mike Sekowsky and Mike Esposito. For some reason I like this Sekowsky cover more than the JLA cover from two days ago.

Inside we have our cover story "The House-Hunting Heroes" by E. Nelson Bridwell, Mike Sekowsky and Mike Esposito. The Inferior Five seek a new headquarters after an awful songwriter barges into their current meeting place. After purchasing a new Inferi-Car, the team visits the Batson Building, a prospective headquarters.

At the same time in the penthouse of the Batson Building, Rod Rickard conducts an experiment which bestows himself, his assistant, his wife, and her kid brother with super powers. The foursome form the Kookie Quartet and promise to take over the crime-fighting duties in Megalopolis.

Before the Inferior Five can meet the Quartet's challenge, a bank robbery is committed. The perpetrators are King-Size and the Tsetse Fly, a pair of crooks with size changing abilities. Guest-stars Plastic Man and Invisible Kid.
