Hope you don't mind me placing this here, I've been incredibly lazy this year, not having done a single update since MARCH. Though I guess we all need a break from time to time, don't we?

Here's a look at Ben's solo title of the 80s, feel free to offer suggestions/corrections if anything's factually wrong:

Nice article Richard, I enjoyed reading it and recalling the Thing's solo series. I'll have to take a look at that issue where Anne Nocenti is in bandages and it's implied Ben gave her a beating.


In answer to one of your questions, I believe the hippie who shot Miracle Man was the Scourge of the Underworld. Originally believed to be a single individual it was later revealed to be an organization of people who were taking out C and D-listers. The story resolved in Captain America I think.




The Thing's battle record will return one day in the future!

um...you mentioned Ben's never hit a woman before? Was that true? I don't recall him ever having a problem fighting super strong women opponents before.

He wouldn't go beat up a normal woman sure. But if Titania punched him I'm sure he would punch her back.

Back then, yeah. Ben vs Thundra consisted of him only grappling her while she pounded his blue eyes black.

It's not an absolute (did I make it sound that way?) but it always seemed to be under duress, if at all.

This may have changed from the 90s on, of course, a time when he was in competitive fights with the female version of the Hulk...
