The brief Roy Thomas era begins with a three-parter that starts with a re-telling of the foursome’s origin. It’s an interesting way to launch a new creative team for a book that had been associated with Jack Kirby for 100 issues and Stan Lee for 125.
Content wasn’t the only carry over. Thomas continued the intended-comedy-relief of the FF beating up their landlord. This really isn’t funny though. The team are acting like a bunch of bullies.
And then, at the very end, they kind of pick on Mole Man, too. Now granted, Mole Man is a bad dude doing bad things, but you can’t helpbut feel sorry for him.
Creators: Roy Thomas and John Buscema
