JUSTICE INC "Monster Bug" Conclusion

Art by Jack Kirby and Al Milgrom
The terrorist named Sodom, having barely survived a battle with The Shadow, now matches wits with The Avenger as he plots to use a virus that mutates humans.
Disguising himself as a scientist Sodom tried to kidnap, The Avenger proceeds to an auto show, hoping to lure Sodom out into the open.
The plan works, but Sodom, when cornered, uses some of the virus to turn innocent show visitors into mindless monsters...
Written by Denny O'Neil, illustrated by Jack Kirby and Mike Royer.
Unlike the first two issues, this was an original tale rather than an adaptation of one of the 1940s pulp stories, giving a different version of how Mac, the chemist, joined the group.
(Fergus "Mac" MacMurdie joined in the first pulp story, which was adapted in Justice Inc #1, without his character!)
Strangely, all three issues of this series that Kirby drew featured the villain falling to his death from a great height!
