[personal profile] starwolf_oakley posting in [community profile] scans_daily
I planned to post this for St. Patrick's Day. Whoops. It is from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #24, and an early story by Scott Lobdell. Shamrock, aka Molly Fitzgerald, vs. Arnim Zola. Shamrock doesn't wear green tights in the story, which *might* be for the best.

Molly returns home after the death of her brother. Her father, mad about the death and his daughter being a peace-loving teacher, drugs her tea and brings her to Arnim Zola.

This was the first time I'd ever seen Arnim Zola. It was pretty trippy. Still is, although he's less "Max Headroom" in movie stories. (Hey, the guy transferred the Red Skull's mind into a cloned body of Steve Rogers! Dude has skills.)

Zola wants to transfer Molly's "good luck" powers to her father. But first he has to see how they work. And then...

Molly is a conduit for spirits of the innocent victims of war? Sounds like something from a Ghost Rider comic.

So, *Arnim Zola* is giving Molly a morality lecture?

"Yes, I created the Hate-Monger, gave the Red Skull a new body, and other evil things, but at least I'm not full of crap!"

It can be hard to equate "With great power comes great responsibility" to "Must punch bad guys in the face."

Molly's father is rather angry about all this, and tries to kill her. Since Molly can't really control her powers, the gun explodes in his hand, killing him.
