I love this splash page.

At the end of his titular series, Thing mutated and ran away.  Now, his teammates are looking for him.  But, instead, they come across two lame villains, one new and one very old: Headlok and Griffin.

Headlok is the new one.  Griffin is the old one:

“What a great fight!”

No, it’s not.  I can’t believe this is the same Steve Englehart who wrote a seminal run on Captain America.  This is just bad.

At the end, Thing tells the team to leave him alone and Firebird quits because they picked Thing over her for membership (they couldn’t have added two people to the team?  It takes all of them to take down Griffin and Headlock—seems they could use more help!)

Creators: Steve Englehart and Al Milgrom

First appearance: Headlok
Grade: C-
