But is it a Fantasti-Camel?
Here’s a team-up we’ve actually seen before, in issue 28: the Mad Thinker and ol’ Charlie McCarthy himself, the Puppet Master.
They actually make a great pair, because they’re both backseat villains who focus on planning rather than action.
But I don’t understand why being on a team will stop people from calling the Mad Thinker by his name, or why he has a problem with his name.
Dr. Doom would really appreciate it if you respected his choice of appositives.
Intriguingly enough, this is the first real appearance of Kang the Conqueror in a Fantastic Four comic (save for his time spent as King Rama-Tut and one panel of the wedding special).
Of course, in the wedding special, Kang was taken down by the other Marvel superheroes. But for whatever reason, the FF seem super familiar with him and completely unsurprised that he’s no longer a pharaoh.
Anyway, so that’s an example of “not good writing.”
Kept you waiting, didn’t I?
Anyway, here it is: Stan and Jack’s 100th (or technically 106th, because there were annuals) issue of the Fantastic Four!
"Villains, villains, villains!" they claimed. They aren’t wrong: this issue features a lot of villains. It also features almost no plot and a complete disregard for several key facts about said "villains, villains, villains."
In other words, this cover looks cool, but this issue is terrible.`
