Fantastic Four #95
Issue(s): Fantastic Four #95
Medusa comes to New York to collect Crystal.
Reed asks Johnny if he would rather tackle the Monocle or "cry in your cheerie-oats?".
Believe it or not, this Monocle goofball will actually show up again.
My favorite panel:
Per Mark's comment here's the end sequence. I don't really think this was a goof on Kirby's part.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Marvel's Greatest Comics #76
The Monocle falls off a building(I think) at the end, but his rescue isn't shown by Kirby, so Stan Lee has to cover for it in the dialogue at story's end.

Surely Johnny must have flamed off one hand and caught the Monocle, so as to avoid the murder rap he would have been facing if Monocle had gone splat, as he most definitely would, if he had landed on the rock-hard Thing from that height.

Unfortunate color choice on ol' Monocle here, as he comes off looking like that scientist who just appeared in THOR (who was also colored way too similar to Volstagg).
