THE FANTASTIC FOUR #38 (1965)


This issue featured the team’s second battle against the Frightful Four, and the first time Paste-Pot Pete was called The Trapster.  But this is the keeper panel.  Thing spanking The Invisible Girl.  (Actually, he’s tripping her, but it sure doesn’t look like it.)

But it sets a precedent…

But, more importantly, Medusa is now the leader, she’s got a better costume, and Paste Pot Pete ahs picked a much better name for himself: Trapster.  Like, as in glue traps.  Like we use to catch mice.  Get it?  He’s also dating Medusa.

Anyway, the Frightful Four actually win the battle and, as a result, the F4 are left without their powers for next issue.  Neat!
