FANTASTIC FOUR #28: The FF Meet the X-Men! (1964)

This is the first time that the Fantastic Four meet the Uncanny X-Men.

Puppet Master controls Professor X, and gets him to tell the X-Men to attack the Fantastic Four.  They do all kinds of cool things to them, like freezing Thing’s feet, and wrapping Reed up like a garden hose.

At the start of the issue, Ben and Alica have a little conversation and we see that she is a sculptress.  This is just another layer to the coolness that is the relationship between Puppet Master, his daughter, and Thing.  I love this triangle–it’s one of my favorites in Marvel Comics.

Awesome Android is in this issue, too. Briefly.

Last but not least: Thing falls in a hold again.

I told you it happens a lot during the Lee and Kirby days….


Y’know, I was gonna do a feature of “Thing falling into holes” but I just don’t have time.  But trust me, it happens a lot.

Creators: Stan and Jack
