Metal Men #35

Metal Men #35 (On Sale: October 22, 1968) has a pretty cool cover by Mike Sekowsky and George Roussos.

"Danger -- Doom Dummies" is by Robert Kanigher, Mike Sekowsky and George Roussos. Continuing from last issue, the Metal Men are forced to do battle with an army of mannequins that have been animated by an alien entity. While the robots succeed in destroying many of their opponents, the army causes them the retreat.

Meanwhile, Tina has survived crashing into an active volcano. The alien she was trying to defeat falls in and becomes a volcano man. She is able to lure the alien back to the city where his volcanic heat melts the mannequin army. Tina then pretends to agree to the alien's demand to become his queen. She leads him out to sea where the water cools his boiling temperatures and neutralizes him.

Despite their success against the alien and his army, the authorities still mistrust the robots and believe they should be deactivated.It has been reprinted in Showcase Presents: Metal Men Vol. 2 TPB.
