FANTASTIC FOUR #126-128 (1972)

IMG_0397

IMG_0399The 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 helpIMG_0401but feel sorry for him.
