It's been a very long time since we've seen Ben pop back to human form. I wonder if he's forgotten what his regular face looks like?
Today's transformation comes in the middle of a spot of spring cleaning. It's probably the most typical sort of transformation for Ben. Reed has concocted a potion or serum that he happily feeds Ben without any concerns as to its side-effects, carcinogenic contents, any allergies Ben may have, etc.
As we all know by now, these transformations rarely stick, although it's a full three pages before we see Ben as The Thing again. Rather unusually, the transformation back happens off panel, and not a single member of the team comments on it.
