Plastic Man #6

Plastic Man #6 (On Sale: July 25, 1967) has a cover by Carmine Infantino and Mike Esposito.

Inside we have "The Sly, Slippery, Slithery Sphinx" by Arnold Drake and Winslow Mortimer. A criminal known as the Sphinx upstages Dr. Dome and makes him look foolish. When the Sphinx then tries to kill Plastic Man, Dr. Dome forms an alliance with Plas because he wants the honor of killing him himself.

"Menace of the Mad, Mad, Mod Goldzinger" is also by Arnold Drake and Winslow Mortimer. When Plastic Man and Mike visit a dance club, the are on the scene for a robbery by Goldzinger, a crook that can magnetically attract gold. Plastic Man pursues and catches the crook. Before he can be turned over to police, Madame DeLute frees Goldzinger and hires him to kill Plastic Man.
