Avengers appearing in "The Light That Failed!" 1st Appearance of Costa Verde Rebels -- The Living Laser (2nd Appearance) met and fell in love at first sight with the Wasp. He captured her and began a battle with the Avengers,briefly collaborating with revolutionaries in Costa Verde and becoming the country's dictator for a few hours.
Note: Page 2: Cap's shield is disintegrated by one of the Living Laser's Lasers. This would be considered a continuity error as in later stories it is revealed the Cap's shield was constructed out of pure Adamantium and is indestructible. This story predates that "revelation." Captain America's shield had been previously described as being made of "steel" in Avengers #8.
In a later letters page, Marvel editors indicate that Captain America used a replica shield in his battle against the Living Laser. This replica shield was the one destroyed. This editor would propose that Captain America, not being aware of the capabilities of the Living Laser's weapons and not having tremendous knowledge of advances made in lasers since 1945, chose to not have his long treasued shield (given to him by President Franklin Roosevelt) risk destruction. He therefore used a replacement which was coated in Tony Stark's refractive coating.
Page 17: Goliath is able to change his size for the first time since Avengers #28, when he was "locked" at a height of 10 feet because the strain of changing his size would kill him if he attempted to shrink again.
