    Default Idol of Millions Ben Grimm The Thing Appreciation 2019

    Ben Grimm better known as The Thing

    is the original quintessential tough-guy of the Marvel Universe.
    But, because of his transformation, he's also the tragic member of the Fantastic Four.
    Ben was an ace test-pilot until exposure to intense cosmic radiation mutated him
    into a rock-skinned monster with immense superhuman strength.
    Ben's exterior is much harder than stone which gives him a rather gruff disposition;
    but deep down, he has a heart of gold.

    I have my fingers crossed to see, The Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing, star in a MCU Fantastic Four movie in 2021 together with the other 3 FF members.

    Marvel-Two-in-One #1 Jan 1974
    "Vengeance of the Molecule Man!"
    The Thing, still trying to get home, sees a magazine cover featuring the Man-Thing in a small town Bus Station.
    Upset by the similarity of his and Man-Thing's names, he decides to travel to Florida instead of New York.

    The Molecule Man, confined to his other-dimensional prison, tells his son to avenge him by destroying the Fantastic Four, and then apparently dies.
    The construct then undergoes a process similar to that which gave Molecule Man his powers.
    He attempts to teleport to New York City, but instead appears in the Florida Everglades, face to face with the Man-Thing.

    The Thing arrives and is surprised to see the Molecule Man.
    He charges the villain, but the Molecule Man uses his wand to transform both the Thing and the Man-Thing back into their human forms.
    The two men are believed to be human again, but realize that they must still stop
    the Molecule Man before he fulfils his vow to destroy the entire Fantastic Four.

    By the time they catch up to him, the Molecule Man has reached the nearby town of Citrusville and is wreaking havoc with the powers of his wand.
    He even turns an innocent pedestrian into a likeness of Mister Fantastic and kills him.
    The Molecule Man notices that Ben Grimm and Ted Sallis seem more compassionate and driven to stop him
    in their human form than in their more monstrous forms, so he transforms them back to the way they were before.
    It is his wish see the two destroy each other. The Thing punches his fist through the Man-Thing's body and withdraws a fistful of muck.
    He hurls the slime at the Molecule Man, striking his wand. The cosmic device flies from his hand and rolls through some cracks in the wreckage.
    As the wand is the reservoir for his power, the Molecule Man desperately tries to retrieve it.
    His power levels are quickly depleted his life essence drains away.
    After the construct dies, the Thing recovers the Molecule Man's wand, while the Man-Thing instinctively begins lumbering back to his swamp.

    The Thing hands the now-powerless device to a nearby child.

    Marvel-Two-in-One #2 Mar 1974
    The Sub-Mariner, Wundarr and Namorita guest star in "Manhunters from the Stars!"
    When the stranger named Wundarr falls from the heavens he is discovered
    by the beautiful Atlantean Namorita, cousin to the Savage Sub-Mariner.

    A misunderstanding sets the powerful Wundarr against the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing.


    Then, when Namor and Nita show up, things just get worse from there.

    The Thing is quite underrated in current era of comics. I remember back at early 90s, he was the most known Marvel hero along with Spider-Man, Wolverine and Hulk. He had that "Wolverine publicity" as the most iconic member of F4.I always loved his personality and Grimm is my favorite tough guy of MU.
    " I am Loki Scar-Lip, Loki Skywalker, Loki Giant's Child, Loki Lie-Smith. I am Loki, who is fire and wit and hate. I am Loki. And I will be under an obligation to no one."

    Absolutely one of the most endearing characters in all of comics.

    A solo movie. I wonder. Or at least a team up movie with the Hulk. Ah. Even better.

    Indeed he is. A great way to sum up his character and its place in comic book history.

    I'll always be a fan of the big ol' orange lug with a heart of gold.
