Notes Although there is no break in the story line or a different title for #99. This is the last issue of Tales of Suspense; issue #100 became "Captain America" #100.

This is the final issue of Tales of Suspense, at the time Marvel was phasing out a number of their older titles that used to be old science fiction, horror, and fantasy tales and renaming them to a title that matched the super-hero that took over the book following the resurgence in popularity in super-heroes in the 1960's. In the case of Tales of Suspense, the title was re-named to Captain America (but keeping the issue numbers) as for Iron Man, his story was continued in a special one-shot Iron Man and Sub-Mariner title, because at the time the following story was still only an 11 page story (which fit the Tales of Suspense format), it was teamed up with a Sub-Mariner story that suffered the same problem when Tales to Astonish was retitled to Incredible Hulk. Following this one shot, Iron Man and Sub-Mariner would be given their own full length titles.
