Well, I'll say one thing for the Identity Crisis posts, it's making me want to post more NON Identity Crisis stuff.

"I'll bet the first comic I lay hands on in the cathedral-like vault which is my comic collection (ahem!) is more fun that that!" and by a weird coincidence (and it really was) the first comic I laid my hands on was actually one of the very very first American comics I ever bought with my own pocket money.

So from the dim and distant past of 1979... I bring you a story involving Ben Grimm taking a shower, a hero wearing a protagonist over his crotch, gratuitious authorial inserts and a shapeshifting alien with a low boredom threshold and a very short attention span.

Yup! It's the Thing and the Impossible Man in....

I tracked this down after seeing a page from it on a Black Widow fan's Tumblr, and it did not disappoint. It's packed fat with early Chris Claremont dialogue, but it's a cool done-in-one story just the same.

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
