Synopsis

Merlin is awakened after a thousand years and immediately decides to try and take over the world; He battles Thor using familiar Washington D.C. monuments.

Notes

According to The Mighty Thor Comics Index #5 by George Olshevsky this is not the same Merlin that is in the Black Knight comics. This Merlin is a mutant who later became the Warlock and the Maha Yogi in X-Men #30 and #47.
