    According to Defalco's "Creators on the Fantastic Four":

    Defalco asks: What did you think of the scarring of Ben Grimm's face?

    Ryan: I thought it was interesting. As I recall, he stayed scarred for a long time. In the following issue, in which Ben was on the moon, I put a helmet on him to cover up the scarring and protect his face. More people complained to me about the helmet than anything else. Even more than they complained about Sue's "special" costume.

So Paul Ryan came up with the helmet? That's weird. It looks so incredibly stupid.

Does Defalco say why he had Ben get scarred?
