    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    When the Frightful Four comes into contact with Reed and Sue, they try to brainwash them as well! Reed performs surgery on Ben to get him out of his trance and the team must fight together to capture the Frightful Four! The only problem is one of them manages to escape…

    Reed must devise a way to bring Ben out of his evil, hypnotic trance, and has no choice but to attempt a dangerous operation of going into Ben's mind and clearing out the lies and distortions.He gasses Ben with Sleeping gas, and prepares his old friend for the risky test.

    The operation an apparent success, Ben is recuperating when the Frightful Four invade the Baxter Building once more with the Human Torch in tow as their hostage! They want Reed and Sue to allow them to hypnotize THEIR minds as well, or the Wizard will send Johnny's bound body into space on a huge anti-gravity disc.

    Reed stalls for time, and just in the nick of time, Ben awakens- his mind clear, with a raging mad-on for the Frightful Four! All the Frightful Four Members are defeated and prepped for prison, all except Medusa, whom Johnny let slip away, though for the life of himself, he doesn't know why!

    A great postscript to the story is when Reed calls the local Police to tell them they have the Frightful Four in custody - and the Chief of Police laughs in Reed's face, thinking it nothing more than a juvenile phone prank!!

    Lo, There Shall Be a Really Pat, Long Overdue Ending! 0

    The battle between the Fantastic Four and the Frightful Four has dragged on for three issues, which is at least two too many, and comes to a pretty unsatisfying conclusion in this issue.Frankly it seems like Lee and Kirby are just going through the motions here. The villains get the drop on the heroes because they just do, the heroes turn the tables because they just do.The Fantastic Four get away from the Frightful Four with the Thing. There is a brief cameo by Doctor Doom to plug the upcoming ...
