The Human Torch & The Thing's Thing

Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch wakes up from a nightmare and then showers in Fantastic Four #236. Special thanks to DAN for letting us know about this one.




And here's Spider-Man getting an eyeful of the Thing's thing! Also, Ben Grim is a Lady Gaga fan?! This hilarious scan was brought to you by Croup.

Ben loves GAGA?!! Too much to comprehend!?! Plus, Spidey looks to be trying to sneak a peek, freaky! :)

Hey! That's not Johnny! It's just a puppet!

* sneaks into Doom's base to find Johnny's unconscious real body *

Yummy...

DAN said...

@Cesar - I know, right! It would be easy access and all, HA! XD Makes you wonder what Doom was really up to with their real bodies while they were in mini-ville! :)

Oh, I'm so out of the loop, I dunno what your guys are talking about. lol *checks wikipedia*

DAN said...

Doom captured the FF in #236 and transferred their consciousnesses into mini bodies in a mini town in a glass dome to get them out of his way forever. They of course eventually escaped and got their real full size bodies back which Doom had in his lab next to the mini town. And they trapped Doom in his own mini town with a mini lynch mob chasing after him no less, fun issue!

Oh, that Victor Von Doom! Instead of just trying to kill his enemies, he comes up with a wacky scheme that backfires spectacularly. When will he ever learn? lol

Thanks for the explanation, DAN!

DAN said...

What would villains be without overly elaborate schemes that spectacularly backfire, it's like an essential part of the comic book form. ;)

Is it me or there were lots of shower scenes in the 80s? I think we rarely see that today...

DAN said...

Yes, lots of showering in the 70's & 80's, but not much anymore, I guess the hero guys don't work up a sweat anymore. Kind of icky that they're not showering anymore. ;)

I don't know about other comics but the men of the BatFamily seem to be upholding this tradition, hope you enjoy these old posts guys:
Batman Showers Again
Nightwing Caught in the Shower
Ex-Robins After Showers
Dick Grayson Showering
Dick in the Shower (Again)

And on the Marvel side of things...
Peter Parker in the Shower
More Gambit!
Nate Grey & The Fantastic Four
Iceman in the Shower, plus original Art

Oh well, then it's not all lost.

@DAN - As you might imagine I'm a major fan of the overelaborate death trap, it shows the villain has some creative flair and a sense of style.

As Lex Luthor once put in "Lois and Clark" - I do hate having to have someone killed. It's like... announcing to the world that you can't solve a problem creatively! :)

DAN said...

@icon - Yeah, but I think it's more that rather than taking a chance and create new villains after killing off the old ones permanently, the comic companies just want to keep using the well known older ones if for no other reason than marketing, so the same old heroes and villains fight each other eternally. Whatever works I guess. :)

Speaking of overly elaborate death traps combined with shirtlessness, does anyone else here love The Wild Wild West with Robert Conrad, that show really delivers on both counts and I still watch repeats of it. It's the most awesome show to come of the 60's next to Mission Impossible. XD

That issue was also cute because Phillip worked with Victor but with a different motivation. He wanted to make Alicia happy.

And Victor enjoyed having a less-genius Reed to torment.
