The Transparent Fox:
Marvel Two-In-One #73
Issue(s): Marvel Two-In-One #73
It's a really crazy and cool idea, but the Thing and Quasar have to shut it down, in part because the Roxxon manager on site says he'll kill the Thing if the Thing won't join them, and in part because Roxxon are exploiting the local cavemen (hey, it's an alternate reality, so cavemen and dinosaurs can live together if they want to).
The Roxxon guys manage to escape with the device that would transport them home...
...but Quasar and the Thing figure out that Roxxon must have another device connected to the oil pumps in order to transport the oil back to their dimension, so that's how they get home.
The Thing even manages to grab the head guy, but even if they get him to confess, you have to imagine that it would be hard to charge Roxxon with anything. Aside from threatening the Thing, i imagine public opinion would be very heavily on the side of Roxxon on this one. It will be said in Amazing Spider-Man #235 that the Thing and Quasar netted no solid evidence against Roxxon here.
Alternate dimension dinosaurs! What more can you ask for?
Quality Rating: B

This is similar to a 1936-37 MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN story, "Mandrake in the Lost World". (Spoiler warning.) Mandrake heads to Antarctica to rescue a missing aviatrix. He finds a prehistoric country surrounded by steam walls. The villains are ruthless oilmen whose drilling is releasing steam and causing the warm area to shrink. If they continue the lost world will cease to exist. On Mandrake's instructions Lothar turns off their electric fence, and a rush of dinosaurs destroys the oilfield.
