Fantastic Four # 42

Issue: Fantastic Four # 42
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Jack Kirby
Publication Date: September 1965

Brief Summary:


http://marvel.wikia.com/Fantastic_Four_42


Commentary:

The team engages in a rather uninspired fight with the Frightful Four.  Torch doesn't refer to Trapster as Paste-Pot Pete.  If a guy calls himself Paste-Pot Pete, even once, you should never let him forget it.  Let that be a lesson to all you inspiring super heroes and villains.

The Frightful Four are able to brainwash Torch just as they were Thing.  Also, this story isn't wrapped up at issue's end, but will continue again.  A three-parter from Stan.

Favorite Panel:
Torch means business.
