A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 81

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we look at the classic conclusion of the FF tale, “This Man, This Monster”!


The basic set-up of this Jack Kirby/Stan Lee tale is that a jealous (unnamed) scientist decides to get his revenge on Reed Richards by switching places with the Thing.

He, of course, is shocked by the goodness of the Fantastic Four, and, well, read on…

Perhaps a bit over the top, but overall, and excellent representation of the humanity of Lee/Kirby’s Fantastic Four. And this was the NEXT issue after the Galactus trilogy!!

And NEXT issue introduces the Black Panther!

And this is only eight or so issues after the introduction of the Inhumans!!

What a heady time for a comic book!

As for “the” moment, I’m torn between the actual sacrifice and Reed’s epitaph. I guess I’ll go with the former.
