Fantastic Four #16: Property Damage 15

Fantastic Four #16, page 21, panels 3-5 Script: Stan Lee

Art: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

I guess I'm stretching the bounds of this category a little. The idea of Property Damage is to catalogue the sheer volume of destruction caused by The Thing to parts of New York,  both public and private. It's the kind of category I would never apply to The Man Of Steel...

Right now, Ben is smashing up the runway of a nameless planet in the microverse. It doesn't have any effect on our world at all. And yet it's incredibly fun to look at, with Kirby's exaggerated perspective resulting in a barely-visible Thing, but one who is completely animated in his poses. It's absolutely wonderful, which is why it's included here.
