Fantastic Four #55
Issue(s): Fantastic Four #55
Unfortunately the Silver Surfer is visiting her at her summer home...
....and by the time the Thing tracks her down there he's not listening to reason (i mean honestly, the Surfer walks around with no pants on; the world can see he's got nothing going on down there. Then again, no one knows what the Thing's got... Ok, getting too Mallrats, sorry), so he attacks.
The Surfer basically humors him (although he gets a little mad at one point) and after a protracted "fight" Reed and Sue show up and stop Ben from fighting any more.
Meanwhile Johnny and Wyatt arrive in the Himalayas in time to see a group of villagers fleeing from a monster. It turns out to be Lockjaw.
The Silver Surfer says he is in a world he never made. That's Howard the Duck's tagline. What does it mean?!?! I never made my world either.
Also in this issue Black Bolt attempts to use some sort of bomb to destroy the Negative Barrier but it fails and he is forced to scream to disarm it. This is the first time we see that when Black Bolt speaks it causes massive damage.
The issue ends with the cutest picture of the Thing's head looking up as he wonders what will happen the next time the Surfer shows up.
