Mordecai Midas, the richest man on Earth, needs to beef up his image (good for a troubled financial market, don'tcha know), and what's better for the image than joining the world's most beloved superteam? Trouble is, the Fantastic Four won't have him! Worse, they resist his efforts to BUY his way onto the team. So what's a near-trillionarie to do? How about ordering Madame Masque to seek out and eliminate the FF's weakest member in order to create a job opening? Will the Fantastic Four uncover Midas's lethal plan, and just who does Midas think is the weakest team member? Find out in "If You Can't Join Them, Buy Them!"
