Issue: Fantastic Four # 20
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Jack Kirby
Publication Date: November 1963

Brief Summary:

http://marvel.wikia.com/Fantastic_Four_20

Commentary:

The Watcher is back! And for someone who is only supposed to watch, he does spend a lot of time interfering. He is one of the cool early characters that Stan invented, though. Not really a supporting cast member, neither hero nor villain, just...the Watcher.

The Molecule Man is way too powerful. But, for being such a powerful dude, he comes up with some lame ways to try to eradicate the Fan 4. Why try to outstretch Reed when you could create a mountain or something to fall on him?

Quick Thoughts:
  • The team gets some help from the Yancy Street gang!
