Fantastic Four #12: Reed's Stretchy Body 20

Fantastic Four #12, page 19, panels 4-5 Script: Stan Lee

Art: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

Wow, the last couple of days have seen Reed really pull ahead  to solidify his position as the second-most common trope of the Fantastic Four.

I've included both panels today as I love the idea that Reed is fast enough to launch his torso into the air and wrap it around the Hulk as he is in mid-leap, and the way that, still in the middle of the leap, the Hulk is able to generate enough centrifugal force with his own body to unravel Mr Fantastic.

Thankfully, the Hulk would rarely be seen with such astonishing leaping powers again.
