FANTASTIC FOUR #129-132 (1972)

Crystal went back to her own people.  Johnny was sad.  So Johnny vowed to rejoin her.

Johnny arrived at Attillan, the hidden city of the Inhumans, to learn that Crystal was banging Quicksilver.


At first he was hot-headed, but it really just made Johnny even more sad.


But a new costume did help him feel a little better.

Medusa got one, too.

And Crystal and Human Torch break up.

And really, it was Reed who had it the worst. In the first real concrete signs of their fragmenting relationship, Sue quit the team.  But us fans got to see Medusa round out the F4–a truly strong woman who would never, ever be treated like a damsel in distress.
