In the past, I've mentioned that the Flash's "Rogues Gallery", only really became the bunch of... if not exactly friends, then vaguely companionable allies, in a retcon when Wally became the Flash.

However, I do love the concept of criminals not all being monstrous, antisocial loners, and of course, this being comics, someone else did it earlier.

And better yet, the group I have in mind debuted in a story featuring not only Ben Grimm, the ever lovin' Thing, but one of my favourite C-list superheroes (here depicted in chibi mode by the redoubtable Katie Cook)



STINGRAY! :)

Marvel Two In One - An unappreciated title )

Found this in one of my longboxes and having fond memories of the insanity it contained, thought I'd share.

"Marvel Two-In-One" (with regular star The Thing) was a sort of companion title to "Marvel Team-Up" (regular star Spider-Man) and both were sort of an answer to "The Brave and the Bold" (regular star Batman) and "DC Comics Presents" (Regular star Superman).

Take a widely known, ground level hero and add lesser known (or one not noted for solo aoppearances) hero, add plot, sit back and enjoy.

MTiO produced some excellent stories under regular writer Mark Gruenwald, notably the Project Pegasus Saga, the debut of the second Serpent Squad (Which would later grow into the Serpent Society) and others, but this a fun, done-in-one little romp, featuring a guy made of rocks, and a guy with wings, fighting armoured attackers after a night at the disco...



So from October 1980, welcome to
