Friday Night Fights: Short Sharp Shock

I’m still on hiatus, but there’s no way I can miss out on our traditional beginning of the weekend, can I? So let’s get set for… FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS!

Today’s battle is from September 1965’s Fantastic Four #42 by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Vince Colletta. There’s mind-control afoot, and the Thing has temporarily turned evil and joined up with the Frightful Four. So he aims to take Johnny Storm out of the picture…

And that’s that. Backing away from the computer once again, and I’ll see y’all back here at some point next week.

    Ha ha, I thought the FX bubble in the last panel said “THING!” when I first saw it. I did a two second double take. How awesome would that be if anytime the Thing whacks somebody, a big “THING!” word bubble pops up.

    Panel: The Thing picks up a vase filled with flowers and smashes it over Johnny Storm’s melon.
    Thing: Hey, kid! Here’s a pot fer pushin’ up the daisies!
    FX: THING!

    Maybe thats not so much awesome as essential.

    I like the way The Think was illustrated here, why does he look so different from The Thing I seem to remember?
