Fantastic Four #10: Flamin' 'Eck 9

Fantastic Four #10, page 21, panels 5-7 Script: Stan Lee

Pencilling: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Uncredited Lettering: Art Simek

Today's triptych of panels sees one of the most ridiculous uses of Johnny's powers seen to date. And that's saying something! Confused by the bodyswap, Johnny, Ben and Sue need to find a way to prove which Reed is the real one. What Johnny decides to do is to use the abilities of heat to create a mirage of a stick of dynamite. And nothing else.

Sadly, this trick fools both Doom and Reed, proving conclusively that the superior intellect is... Johnny.

Even sadder is the fact that without a category to put it into, Doom's delusions of alternate evolution, where dinosaurs didn't outgrow their brains and evolved into spacesuit-wearing astrosaurs, sadly go unrecorded by this blog.
