    I recall him getting dizzy spells when he was hanging around with Vance Astro. Those spells eventually got worse and he started mutating. Ben wondered a couple of times why it was happening but it was never answered.


Speaking of Vance...I was always a little disappointed their friendship didn't seem to carry over to when Vance became a super hero. Ben was a character witness at Vance's murder trial but I don't think the friendship was ever acknowledged again. Like that time Puppet Master used Vance to kidnap Alicia in Defalco's run...I don't think it even came up.


No, I skimmed that issue and Ben doesn't even acknowledge Vance, or vise versa, in that issue. DeFalco was funny that way, he only used continuity when it served his plot. He was ahead of his time!

Vance did prevent Johnny from getting some from Lyja/Alicia.




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