Marvel Flashback: Two in One #77
Marvel Two-In-One #77 (Marvel Comics)
Tom DeFalco (w) Ron Wilson (a)
The Thing, Man Thing and.. Sgt Fury & His Howling Commandos all in one issue? How is that possible?
Of course this is comics and not all is as it seems.
Nick Fury calls in on the Baxter building to get Ben Grimm (aka The Thing) to "volunteer" to test fly an experimental plane that goes at Mach 3. A challenge former WWII pilot Benjamin Grimm cannot refuse.
So with tears in Alicia's eyes off he goes.
This being comics the bloody thing crashes...in of all places the Florida Everglades home of the silent monstrosity...The Man Thing.
Struggling to survive (and being stalked by the muck monster attracted to Grimm's heroic survival instincts) Ben begins a journey whereby he reminisces his WWII adventures with you guessed it Sgt Fury and his Howlers.
An interesting story from 1981 that concentrates on character rather than just action.
