Marvel Two-In-One #96
Issue(s): Marvel Two-In-One #96
And in the tradition of stories like Fantastic Four annual #3, just about every hero comes to visit him...
...and every villain comes to try to kill him.
Joke villain Fabian Stankowicz is among those who come to attack the Thing, but Spidey stops him.
Pretty much the only villain who doesn't get involved is Dr. Doom, who considers an attack on a hospitalized foe to be beneath him. Fantastic Four #258 will include a flashback of Doom's robots taking Terrax out of the same hospital at this time and note that Doom is aware of the Thing's condition and wants him unmolested.
In the end, the only villain who makes it through to the Thing is the Sandman, and he just wants to share some beers.
This was fun!
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The heavy lifting was done for Marvel Two-In-One Annual #7, where just about everyone appears. I've placed this directly after it. And since this is an intentionally silly story, i'm not going to sweat any minor problems.
Continuity Implant? N

The weird thing is that Beetle is in his old armor in this story, and not the new armor he started wearing in Spectacular Spider-Man 58.
