With the Comics Code Authority relaxing its decades long stance on censoring the use of monsters and the undead in mainstream comics, DC placed an emphasis on the horror of combat with "Weird War Tales." The hybrid genre series was hosted by death, who appeared in new military garb every issue to present gritty tales of combat with overtones of suspense, science fiction, and paranormal activity. Produced by a who's who of war comic greats, including series editor Joe Kubert, writer Robert Kanigher, and artists Alex Toth and Russ Heath, the series' 124-issue run also introduced readers to cult favorites like the Creature Commandos.

Sensing the Metal Men's depression over Platinum's absence, Magnus had suggested taking the Jetaway out for a ride. Soaring over the city, Magnus spied meteorites plummeting into a giant gas storage tank. The meteorites' impact caused a massive explosion. Magnus, and the Metal Men, were pitched out of the Jetaway. Holding onto Mercury, Magnus was carried back up into the Jetaway. Tin attempted to seal the burning gas tank. The gas, though, burned hotter than Tin's melting point, reducing the humble Metal Man to slag. Lead also tried to seal the blazing container, and met the same fate. Iron and Gold were able to seal the tank, but both suffered horrendous damage.
