Fantastic Four #25 (1964)

Fantastic Four #25

The Thing and Hulk have fought many, many times – and I picked this up over a year ago, just never showed it off – and there are certain issues that every Hulk fan SHOULD have in his or her (I won’t forget you ladies!) collection.  The early Thing/Hulk fights are certainly some of them!  Just to be clear here – we’re talking FF #12, FF #25 and #26 and let’s add in FF #112 – for the cover alone!  I will have to post that issue later on – but for now gaze in the glory of FF #25 and the Kirby art!  The most famous part of this issue is that Stan Lee calls Bruce Banner “Bob”.  Later, they change his name to Robert Bruce Banner – all because Stan Lee forgot the name of the alter ego to his greatest creation!

  1. A Happy New Year to you and your family! I hope that in 2010 we finally see your review of all 3 Superman/Hulk encounters, as well as Batman, Green Lantern and Pitt. I’m almost sure you’ll get a lot of responses to the above mention.

    Hi Mike, first things first. Happy New Year to you and your family. Don’t know if you saw my previous entry but I have Koto bust no. 1778 of 2000. I too look forward to our gammabro’s review on these titles. So how are you young man?

  3. KHM- I’m chilling, no doubt. By the way did you read comment 7 of “in honor of” sec. One more thing before I go, who’s mike and I’m an OLD fart, lol.

    Hello my friend, I have read this comment and gone off to read the other comment. So thanks! I was under the impression from reading your entries that your real name was Mike. If I am wrong then I have made an error on a Jeph Loeb scale and apologize. If you don’t mind me asking what is your real name? PS Regarding age, in a few years time I will be 40, so I can relate. I am the original Old Fart, trust me.

  5. KHM-no sweat on the error dude. For personal reasons I rather not give my name, but if your a “die hard” Hulk fan you would find my name in #465. I got ya beat in age too, happy hunting.

  6. Holy moley! I’ve never heard that “Bob” story. Thanks Ratchet.
