FANTASTIC FOUR #5

The first time Johnny mocks Ben and Ben busts stuff up.  Note that Johnny is reading an issue of The Hulk.  Hulk and Thing were pretty similar characters, in that they were the subject of three-panel metamorphoses on a regular basis, they were big, ugly, and strong, etc.  The thing (pun intended) that made Ben a more interesting and versatile character was his familial relationship to his teammates.  The F4 was, after all, the first comic about a superhero family–unless you count Marvel Family, which I don’t.

fattest superhero

When you think about it, though, the early versions of Marvel Family were kinda similar: The strong, handsome male lead; the hot chick; the younger hotshot; and the bigger, ugly dude.

Anyway, another thing that made F4 #5 special was …

Yes.  The first appearance of Doctor Doom.  This is the comic where they go back in time and Ben gets to be Blackbeard the Pirate.  One of my favorite single issue comic books of all time.

Even if I don’t get why Doom is using a Tiger as a weapon.  I mean, by this time the FF had already fought a giant monster that tried to eat New York, The Skrulls, and Prince Namor.  Surely they can handle a big cat?

Did you know that Bandcamp has a “bestsellers” list? Did you know this dude’s album topped the charts for acoustic albums?

Did you know it’s really nice, gentle collection of singer songwriter tunes?

Did you know it’s “name your price?”

Now you do. And that’s, one to grow on.
