This is really cute, but it's also one of those stories that makes you wonder why there aren't teams of doctors using Pym Particles to operate on other patients with similar issues.

I tend to dislike comics even bringing up real life problems because of the myriad of ways those could be resolved. But writers are unwilling or unable to come up with appropriate new problems for a super-powered world without it breaking down to freedom vs. security in many cases.

You know those 'no shoes, no shirts, no service' signs businesses have, wonder if Thing ever gets any grief for that.

Ben just looks ridiculous when he's wearing a shirt.

I imagine in his case people just look the other way, like they do for Channing Tatum.

Hey, c'mon! Ben's way more good looking than Channing Tatum!

Maybe he wears that giant trenchcoat of his at places with stricter dress codes.

Well it's a good thing he knew the FF personally so they could help him rather than being one of the tons of other people who've died in the same situation.

That's kinda my thing this is a cute story, and I get that logistically it would be impossible for the FF to be there for everyone in need, but I hope there's some kind of acknowledgement in this story that it's sad how impossible to do this on a broader scale otherwise they just look like they only even cared enough to try because it's their mailman

So Black Panther isn't the only one withholding a Cancer cure?

Wait, is it Cancer? Some of the art makes me think Willie has a Beholder infection.

So wheres that asshole Atom doing or Firestorm the guy who can literally turn radiation to perfumes!

Don't play that bullshit I'm tired this withholding tech Marvel BS. You gonna complain about it might well mention DC heroes and their ineffectual ability to help people.

I don't see it as a Marvel vs DC thing. It's a suspension of belief thing.

Warren Ellis made the Four (guess who they're based off of) from Planetary villains because he figured superheroes must be withholding tech or comic worlds would be a whole lot different from our own.

Sometimes having superheroes fight real problems is great and sometimes it breaks the world if you think too hard.

Yeah I read that story, Ellis works best on Indie anyway his Marvel and D.C. Is garbage.

I just get annoyed with some of the people on this site and their double standards.
Oh it's okay to get angry at Marvel heroes withholding tech but if D.C. Does it we should look the other way.

I just get tired of the hypocrital nature of it all. I mean if Firestorm has such a massive control over matter you would think he'd offer his service to remove harmful radiation from people or the obvious remove cancers.
