(Avengers I#101) – Russian chess-master Yuri Sporadnik was taken to a nearby hospital following a poisoning and was placed in the care of Doctor Willis and another surgeon. Thinking how famed Dr. Donald Blake always seemed to have a divine gift for diagnosing health problems, Doctor Willis wished he had a way to contact Dr. Blake. Just as Willis made the comment, Dr. Don Blake appeared at the operation room doorway (having known of Sporadnik’s health issues as Thor).
