FANTASTIC FOUR #136-137 (1973)

Now this is more like it.  Medusa can’t stand rock and roll!  A street gang based on Marlon Brando’s The Wild One!  And The Shaper of Worlds!

It’s actually all very silly and stupid, but it’s also kind of fun.  Again, Gerry Conway’s scripts were generally bad, so this one being as not-bad as it was was a breath of fresh air.  I do like that they helped me finally understand what Shaper of Worlds is about.  Apparently, he’s cursed with an inability to have an imagination, so he goes around bringing other peoples’ dreams to life.  Kind of like a credit card company.

 Susan Storm is still separated from Reed, so Medusa is filling in the required woman role.

Creators: Roy Thomas (plot), Gerry Conway (script), and John Buscema.

Grade: D.
