This allows us to see the ways in which the universe was expanded, sometimes carefully, often times not. We get to see undeveloped themes and the earliest examples of new themes.
Like an evolutionary biologist studying our small, brown furred burrowing human ancestors, we get a look at the way things were without the baggage of the way things are.
This is the second of a series of posts in which I hope to look at Marvel Comics the same way.
Ben (as he transforms once more into the Thing): Oh, no!! Not again! Don’t let it happen again– Don’t– Don’t– I should have known! It couldn’t be– It was just a joke!! Yeah– A real funny joke!
It should be pointed out that the ship must have passed through the radiation belt on the way to the Skrull mother ship, and there was no effect. Also, shouldn’t the Skrulls, with technology beyond that of Earth, have better shielding? This leads me to suspect that the Thing’s transformation back to human form was a psychological effect, not genetic.
Bottom line :
We’ll come back to that soon!
Additional comments and insights are more than welcome.
