Brief Summary:

http://marvel.wikia.com/Fantastic_Four_22

Commentary:


Aw yeah.  Guess who's back.  Our main man from where it all started.  Because everyone was demanding it, Mole Man is back in action.  And, best of all, he's still pulling signal cords. 


Sue's powers are expanded, as she now has the ability to create protective screens of invisible energy, and make other things invisible.  


Dave Cockrum writes in on the letters page!  Dave would later become a comic book artist, including an important run on X-Men.  In fact, he discusses the X-Men in his letter.  He liked Angel.


Favorite Panel:

Favorite Quote:


"Boy, if you were being clobbered by a Martian, you'd spend your time wondering he got to Earth, instead of fightin' back!!" - Thing, to Mr. Fantastic
